Blog Design Giveaway on Once Upon a...Mommy's Quiet Time

I've decided that this would be something nice to have for my personal blog. Not that I couldn't do it myself, I just don't have the time. Mom's Most Wanted keeps me very busy on the net with posts, maintenance etc. and my family keeps me busy at home. So if I won, I would be eternally grateful!

Mommy's Quiet Time is having a fabulous giveaway! Subjective Beauty is giving away a blog design! 


After looking over Subjective Beauty's site, I saw that they do awesome blog designs! I would be honored to have them design my personal blog! I know you would too!

I like the Fire and Ice one she did, but it's a little dark for me. I really like The Harry Line one - simple, yet elegant!   

So head on over for your chance to win, but deep down, I hope it is me that wins! Good luck and thanks Once Upon a Mommy's Quiet Time for hosting such a nice giveaway and thanks Subjective Beauty for sponsoring it!

I wish you enough...

I got this email today, and even though I've read it before, I wanted to share it...

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.'

The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.'

They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he 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 for ever 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,' he said.

'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?'

He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone..' He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he 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, he shared the following as if he 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 enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye.

He then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

To my wonderful family and friends (including bloggy ones)..... I wish you enough!


I can't help it!
