A Wish for All Seasons...

I wish you the courage to be warm when the world would prefer that you be cool.

I wish you success sufficient to your needs;

I wish you failure to temper that success.

I wish you joy in all your days; 
I wish you sadness so that you may better measure that joy.

I wish you gladness to overbalance grief.

I wish you humor and a twinkle in the eye.

I wish you glory and the strength to bear its burdens.

I wish you sunshine on your path and storms to season your journey.

I wish you peace in the world in which you live,
And in the smallest corner of the heart where truth is kept.

I wish you faith to help define your living and your life.

More I cannot wish you, except perhaps love, 
To make all the rest worthwhile.
