I wish you enough.

"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.

044I'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.
