I should start by explaining my screen name, kayaking is one of my favorite things to do. The 69 is my dream car, the 69 Charger-Daytona (the one with a wing on the back) with a 426 HEMI.
HI! I'm glad you chose to look at my profile. If you like the outdoors I'm your man. But I also like staying in and doing many other activities of all kinds or I love doing something new. I'm very open minded and have a great sense of humor. I'm also very romantic. I've also been told that I give an incredible massage. Some other things that I enjoy are hiking, exploring and checking out the many 4x4 trails and every thing else that this beautiful state has to offer.
What I'm looking for, that's a tough one, I guess I'll know when I find her. Send me a message!
an old story...
but so full of beauty , love & wisdom nevertheless ...
Recently I overheard a mother and daughter
in their last moments together at the airport.
They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said,
"I love you and I wish you enough."
The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough.
Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom."
They kissed and the daughter left.
The mother walked over to the window where I was seated.
Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry.
I tried not to intrude on her privacy
but she 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 forever 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," she said.
"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say,
'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?"
She began to smile.
"That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations.
My parents used to say it to everyone."
She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail
and she 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, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory.
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 you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
She 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.
TAKE TIME TO LIVE.....
To all my friends and loved ones,
I WISH YOU ENOUGH!
Doug....you still reign as one of the best of the very best
You have a very open and honest attitude, I love that in a person. Don't ever be afraid to share that with others. I hope I would be one of the ones you share it with!
Give this heart [♥] to
every person you care about
including me if you care.
