"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye."—Bob Perkes
My thoughts drifted back to this quote as I reach out to family & friends on New Years Eve.
I'm currently enjoying a peaceful night at home with my family. Our eldest has a mild case of the croup but somehow even the tender moments we spend comforting her tonight are filled with contentment.
I recall years past when being present paled against what I felt I should be doing to bookmark the last eve of the year. Regardless that wherever that place that I should be was, I stumbled in awkwardness when I was there, pulled out of that present.
This year, I know I am right where I should be. I'm at home, on the couch with my husband, kids asleep and a romantic bottle of sparkling cider. I'm comfortably content.
So, on that note, I wish you enough in 2014.
