    Default I pray you enough ...

    Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate, they hugged, and the mother said, 'I love you, and I pray you enough.'

    The daughter replied, 'Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I pray you enough, too, Mom.'

    They kissed, and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy, but she welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?'

    Yes, I have,' I replied. 'Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?'

    'Well...I'm not as young as I once was, she lives so far away & has her own busy life. I have some challenges ahead, and the reality is - her next trip back will be for my funeral,' she said.

    'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I pray you enough.' May I ask what that means?'

    She began to smile. 'That's a prayer that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.' She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and she smiled even more. 'When we said, 'I pray you enough,' we wanted the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.'

    Then, turning toward me, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory.

    I pray you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

    I pray you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

    I pray you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

    I pray you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

    I pray you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

    I pray you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

    I pray you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

    Then, she began to cry, and walked away.

    They say, it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but an entire life to forget them.

    TAKE TIME TO LIVE ...

    To all my friends and loved ones,
    I PRAY YOU ENOUGH ...










    There's one thing for which you should be abundantly thankful
    Only you and God have all the facts about yourself ♥

    I hope that days come easy and moments pass slow
    And each road leads you where you want to go
    And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose
    I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
    And if one door opens to another door closed
    I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window
    If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile

    More then anything, more then anything
    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it
    To your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small
    You never need to carry more then you can hold
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
    Yeah, this, is my wish

    I hope you never look back, but ya never forget
    All the ones who love you, in the place you left
    I hope you always forgive, and you never regret
    And you help somebody every chance you get
    Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake
    And you always give more then you take

    Oh More then anything, Yeah, and more then anything
    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it
    To your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small
    You never need to carry more then you can hold
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
    Yeah, this, is my wish
