from my dad's holy card:
My wish for you:
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
special blessings for you and those that you love.
May you always be well,
May you always be healthy,
May you always have well-being!
And remember...
There is an appointed time for everything,
and a time for every affair under the heavens.
God Bless.
