When you wish upon a star...

At times our own light goes out
and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude
of those who have lighted the flame within us.
-Albert Schweitzer

For you, my friend (you know who you are). I wish you all the best, all the very best for the present and the future. You have been a constant spark of light to me. This time, I give mine to you.

Enjoy! (lost in translation)

I've failed to come up with a translation for this Norwegian phrase. Enjoy... Life? Living? Being? It is a way of saying enjoy your life, who you are and what you do and just... everything really. The card is for a colleague who is retiring, and "congratulations" just didn't seem right. Thanks to Krissie for the suggestion!
Mental note: When you know about a card three months in advance, try not to start making it at midnight the night before deadline... again.
