Enough definition: as much or as many as required.Back in 2007, I purchased one of my dream cars. It was a 2007 Hummer H2. I was the only person in town that had one. One year later gas prices rose sharply, almost doubling my normal price for filling the tank. And while loving my hummer, it like many other large trucks and cars didn’t get great gas mileage. While pumping gas with many patrons at the local convenience store, I saw a group of young men walking in. One started pointing and shouted, “I bet you hate it!” I turned and asked what was he saying. He responded with a smirk and bold laughter, “I bet you regret getting that H2. Especially filling it with the high gas prices.” My response was swift, “No, it doesn’t bother me about the gas prices because I’m rich.” This response brought laughter from his friends and people pumping gas at the other pumps. I can tell it embarrassed the young man for he quickly opened the door to get inside.Not by any means was I a multimillionaire but, I was rich enough to afford the cost of owning the vehicle.In 1999 I returned to the US from Italy. I returned because of my kidney failure. Sometime after arriving, I had an appointment with Dr. Vella. He was talking to me about the possibility of getting a kidney transplant. I listened to all the issues that could possibly happen if I received one. Diabetes, cancer, cataracts, etc. I remember looking at him with worry. I recently fought off death while being on dialysis., I said to him that I didn’t think I wanted a transplant. He looked at me and said, “Yes, you do. Even though these things will probably happen, you will have increased strength and be strong enough to handle it.When diagnosed with kidney failure, many would try to console me. Others would look upon me with pity but, they were shocked when I showed contentment with what happened to me. I would always say to myself, “I don’t mind.” I was thankful it happened to me instead of my kids because I was stronger than them. Not that it would not affect me, but compared to my kids, I was strong enough to handle it.In life, we seem to want more. More money, more strength, better health, and more peace. We want everything to exceed our needs and wants. But instead of crying over the loss of our excess, we should raise our eyes towards heaven and be thankful that we have enough to carry us through. No car. Being thankful I have enough to ride the bus.Not making a lot of money at work. Happy I have enough energy to work two jobs.Stressed about a sickness? Thankful that God has given me enough energy to physically handle it. And enough peace to not let it bring me down. When I think things over, I realize that all of my good days outweigh my bad days and even though it may be difficult during those times…….. I am more than strong enough so, I won’t complain.
