    Well friends, it is that time of year again when I pass on a blessing that was handed down through my family. I remember each year at Christmas Eve my father would lift his glass with this toast. Again this year I carry on this tradition on his behalf. So I raise my glass and wish you all ENOUGH. All the blessings of the season to you and yours.... Merry Christmas to those who do not celebrate this holiday I wish you all the best in whatever you choose to celebrate.

    May your joys be as bright as the morning, and your sorrows merely be shadows that fade in the sunlight of love. May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to keep you happy, enough failure to keep you humble, enough success to keep you eager, enough friends to give you comfort, enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness, enough wealth to meet your needs and one thing more; enough determination to make each day a more wonderful day than the one before.

    Merry Christmas! Keep all your traditions, they are our connections to the past.

    Thanks piperl12...the same to you and yours. That’s a wonderful blessing...enough is enough. And it’s very true that everyone needs some trials, sorrow and failure as well.

    We’ve been programmed all of our lives to never be satisfied with enough.

    That is wonderful, truly.

    Thank you for sharing it.

    Reading it had quite a profound effect on me.
