Blessed – How Blessed Am I? the 24th Word in the “good Words” Project.

Updated on June 14, 2020

The Good Words Project

The "Good Words" Project, was started by Jo "Grace" Goldsmith and when she told me about the project I promised to write a poem for each "Good Word" she chose weekly.

Grace, would give us a word each week and encourage our fellow Hubbers to really look at it's true meaning and to live by it's meaning, to encourage our fellow Hubbers to practice living the words in our living and writing and to encourage all of us to be the best writer/poets and authors we can be and strive to inspire, and promote good will to bring recognition to unknown writers on this site.

Blessed, this 24th good word reminds me how Blessed I am to have Jo "Grace" Goldsmith as a friend and mentor on/off HubPages.

Flowers are from my friend Shelia, the I Love You Hand from my deaf Son, the angel from my Honey Bunny

Blessed – How Blessed Am I?

© Shyron Shenko 7/18/14

Counting Blessings

Instead of counting Sheep

That’s the one thing to put me right to sleep

How Blessed Am I?

My days are filled with blessings

From the rising of the sun

Till the rising of the moon

When each day is done

I may not always listen

To the blessings I can hear

Blessings that are whispered in my ear

I am blessed that I can hear

I may not always recognize

Blessings right before my eyes

For seeing is a blessing

I am blessed I have my sight

I am blessed to have good friends

Right here on HP

Knowing they really care for me

How Blessed Am I?

I am Blessed to be born

In the land of the brave and the free

Blessed that I am free to be me

How Blessed am I?
