Since these kinds of things seem to be popular... [Dec. 22nd, 2002|09:49 pm]

I'm not sure how this popped into my head, but it might partially be inspired by the line given to Gandalf in one of the Middle Earth books (probably The Hobbit): he is told "May you always be where you are most needed and least expected".

If someone knew 'the real you', deeply, well, and wisely, what type of blessing/well wishing/whatever you might call it, would they give you?

I suppose in keeping with tradition, I should peek at any answers provided by my forays into LiveJournal, but not answer it myself... but I think I have an easy answer for it.

I think it'd be something like

"May you always be strong enough to bear the feelings you must, and always wise enough to act on those feelings in the best way possible."

Explanations of this are available on request.

That's a profound question, my dear, and one that's a little unsettling to ponder, in the "but ... but ... it's *presumptuous* to think of a blessing for myself!" sense. Still, you can (see my answer here).

And yes, I think your blessing is appropriate and suitable for you at this time in your life, and I'll be wishing it for you ...
