Blessings for drifterskip
I count my blessings daily
and I'm not sorry with the sum,
'cause I've got a life worth living,
and I'm not remaining dumb.*

For into every life, a little rain must form,
As flowers need the water,
Like rainbows need the sun,
and it's silly to add my tears to the totals from the storm.

Sometimes life is cookies,**
sometimes it kicks you in the teeth,
because it's love*** and hope and
laughter, misery and grief.

So when I'm feeling down and out,
this little song I'll hum,
because I count my blessings daily,
and I'm not sorry with the sum!

*dumb as in mute. There was lamenting about not posting anything to lj.
**cookies as in sweet, but also tough cookies.
***replace with friends, joy, or pain as you feel moved.

It pretty much made my day to read this. Who knew that a line I'd write in an ordinary entry would serve as a prompt to someone else. ::bows:: It is indeed an honor that you'd share. Another blessing to be counted.

(...okay, so... I wrote this comment yesterday and it didn't post? I totally thought it went through but looks like it didn't. I'm so sorry that you might've thought I didn't see your entry.)

Honestly, I was afraid I was overstepping, so I'm delirious that it was a bright spot for you. And with the way my internet and computer have been acting, I thought that I didn't actually send you the message to let you know. *laughs* We're a bunch of somethings.

::grins:: Aye, that we are, at that.
