    Did you?..

    I mean have you
    counted your blessings

    It will definitely surprise
    you what He has done

    we have heard of this
    but have we
    counted our blessings

    atleast for our health-sake
    atleast for our mental-health sake
    to have peace of mind
    to enjoy what we have
    to value what we have

    count your blessings
    everyday ....
    not only when we hear
    any sober news
    and feel how lucky we are..

    count on those blessings
    daily..and feel how blessed
    we are...

    Dig into your life's events
    dig into your experiences
    dig into your feelings
    consider fellow-beings feelings

    and

    count your blessings
    will you????

    hey sriniketan,
    Good one yaar...

    Counting my blessings,
    is going to take long,
    i don't have so many fingers,
    or so many toes to use,

    but sure dear, I would,
    without these my life,
    would have been too dull,
    Even the happiness that
    comes my way is a
    blessing from angels above.

    I have started using tally marks,
    to count them indeed,
    will come back if at all
    i have a sure count

    you are right about
    blessings ......

    Dear Sri
    A nice poem!
    In my young days, the milkmaid used to put a dot on the wall outside the house after delivering the milk. This dot would help her to calculate the quantity of milk delivered during the month and she would charge us accordingly!
    We too must follow this system to keep track of our blessings and perhaps curses. We'll be surprised to find that our blessings will far outnumber the curses and yet we'll be brooding over the small number of curses only. I have seen that in classes on Behavioural Science, the lecturer would show a huge sheet of white paper with a small black dot on it and ask us what did we see. Everyone would say,'A black dot'! The lecturer would go on to explain how a tiny black dot obscured our vision of the white paper!
    Counting the blessings is the best way to develop a positive approach to life but in reality, most of us keep brooding only over our small misfortunes without giving any thought to our blessings!
    Sri

    Shanthi,
    nice reply yaar..

    If we started to count, we will be counting each and every blessing which will bring surprise to us, like how come we didn't know that before...
    blessing in disguise also counts...

    Cheeniya Sir,
    Thanks for your valuable FB which I count as one of my blessings.

    As you described the tally marks for blessings will surely outnumber the curses.
    Knowing this we should feel happy and be at peace with mind and body..which will of great help to our family and society as a whole.

    Dear Srini,

    A very nice post . Very well written. Youre so right . We have to count our blessings. We always crib about our sufferings , but is only when we look out into the outside world we see more unfortunate ones and then we realise how blessed we are!!

    A real eye opener ,Srini ,I really appreciate it!!
