I Wish You Enough

Author: Bob Perks
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
November 2009

Genre: Inspirational/giftbooks


Do you have enough? Sometimes, having too much is worse than having too little. So, in I WISH YOU ENOUGH, Bob Perks introduces us to a father saying a last goodbye to his daughter. He’s dying, and is realistic enough to know that her next flight home will be for his funeral. The author talks to them and asked about their farewell phase—I wish you enough.

The book starts out with a poem

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 through the final “good-bye.”

This book is beautiful. Literally and figuratively. Not only does it have a lovely cover, but it also includes the above poem, divided up in sections, with short stories illustrating each one. Some of the stories are sweet, encouraging. Some of them are tear-jerkers. And some make you think. A quote and a Bible verse are also included in each section.

If you are looking for a perfect gift to give somebody, then I WISH YOU ENOUGH is exactly what you are looking for. Pick up your copy today. $12.99 hardcover. 128 pages.
