I've been thinking about the old blessing, "I wish you enough."

I know, "enough" is subject to individual aspirations, desires and realities. Right now, Phyllis and I have "enough," barring any calamity that might come along.

So, life is good right now. We have the resources to provide our immediate needs and a few luxuries and joys. No Hawaii vacations are on the financial horizon, but we've already been there and those are joyous memories. I can still bring in extra with wedding ceremonies and floor jobs. Overall, life is good. And, our love and appreciation for each other is greater than ever.

Things could change drastically overnight. It would only take one catastrophic illness or accident to completely reverse everything, but it's self-defeating to dwell on such. Worry only takes away the joy that should be a part of every day.

So, I'm going to go get dressed and amble outside to see what the day offers. The nectarines are rapidly ripening now and I'm looking forward to nectarine cobbler. That's another of the simple joys I treasure.
