Life consists of a delicate balance of opposites. A friend recently sent me a “five day” weather forecast from Seattle, Washington, which creatively predicted five days of continuous rain. As awful as that sounds, remember that by the end of May each year we in Florida are begging for a good soaking. We need both to be happy.
So, for this year,
“I wish for you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
For you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
Happiness to keep your spirit alive.
Pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
Gain to satisfy your wanting.
Loss to appreciate all that you possess.”
I wish you enough!
