Entry for April 23, 2008
There hasn’t been much to blog about here lately. My seizures are still coming, my headaches are still here and there’s not much happening, other then I’ve been sleeping a lot. Nothing really to complain or blog about. I have a splitting migraine right now but I live that way. I feel like crap.
I helped my friends move their stuff into their house the other day in the rain, how much fun was that? It did finely manage to stop raining. The sun came out today for the first time in a week. Other then that life has been. I’ll keep you updated if anything worth blogging about happens. Here’s two little um’s my mom sent me enjoy.
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?’.
‘I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is – the next trip back will be for my funeral ,’ she said.
‘When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough’. May I ask what that means?’.
She began to smile. ‘That’s a wish 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 wish you enough’, we were wanting 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 wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enououghoss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
She then began to cry and walked away.
TAKE TIME TO LIVE….
To all my friends and loved ones,
