Cute cartoon from a cousin

Translation from German to English simply says “healthy.” However, my lifelong understanding of the word is “God bless you.”  Decades ago (centuries ago) the German folks were superstitious and they thought a person’s soul would fly out of their body when they sneezed–and thus the expression “God bless you.” ~~ Sneeze or no sneeze, this is my greeting to you.
