A friend shared this on her facebook page. I only copied the end. It is so touching I wanted to share it.

"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 enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."

Very moving Bre! I had to share it with a friend who's husband has Parkinson's and has been given 2 months to live. He is back home now from his most recent hospital stay and hospice is helping out. She is closer to that final "Good-bye" than many of us.

Hi BreC,
Loved this poem, even if it is the end of it. Put some brightness to what was a blah day. Thank you for that…Hugs. VL

Wonderful…in every bad thing that happens…good is buried..you just have to find it…I was diagnosed with diabetes..really bad right???..No not so much…I am taking better care of myself AND more importantly my children have also started taking better care of themselves..Life is what you choose it to be…really just that simple…

Sometimes it is difficult to feel bright and sunny, but we try. Monitoring everything we eat and do is tedious. I have a complex situation because I have acquired a rash all over my body for the past three months. The doctor has had me on very serious drugs and patch testing is next week. He says, "It's environmental." Sadly, I look like a "measle kid" on the news. Fortunately I did have a Shingle vaccination. Anyway, enjoyed your poem.
