more than enough

     I fill too many of my days with not-enough. I don’t intend to do it. It just comes naturally. It comes in all shapes and sizes -- not-enough time, not-enough fun, not-enough sun, not-enough kudos, not-enough youth, not-enough ice cream, not-enough appreciation, not-enough certainty. It is a long and weary list.

     I want today to be different. I want it to be a more-than-enough day. I want to fill it with thanks –- for the sun rising again and the baby born and a son’s phone call and eyes that see and light that dances and holding a sister’s hand. And at the end of the day, I want to say, “Thank You. It was enough. It was more than enough.”

"Here ends another day, during which I have had eyes, ears, hands and the great world around me. Tomorrow begins another day. Why am I allowed two?" G. K. Chesterton
