Count Your Blessings (A poem of living)

Your life, your breath, is your first blessing…

Close your eyes,

and may you see that

as another blessing—you lived.

Count Your Blessings, Benie.
Your life, your breath, is your first blessing. 
As the day comes to an end,
you will always have had so many more,
even when it is hard to acknowledge.

And should you ever feel that you have nothing
to be grateful for, close your eyes,
and may you see that
as another blessing—you lived.

      1. You are most welcome Benie
        This is so true. Like we linger for a while to smell the roses and the earth after the rain, we must pause in appreciation of each blessing. This too is prayer.
