Luvdalot Graphics & Design - Food & Kitchen - Blessings


Such blessings are mine
And bring me great joy.
Friends and a family ~
A special little boy.
Food on my table,
A cosy warm bed,
A soft downy pillow
To lay down my head.

Shelter from the storm,
The wind and the rain,
Someone to listen
Bringing ease to my pain.
Laughter and listening
The company of friends,
Safety in my home
When the day finally ends.

Kind words and sweet music,
A walk by the sea,
Someone who cares
And understands me.
Looking at photographs
Memory is kind,
Bringing the sweetest
Of pictures to mind.

Walks in the rain
On the banks of the river,
Watching the water
As the reeds bend and quiver.
Freedom of speech,
The right to say no.
Such blessings are mine
This surely I know.

The Pages of Avalon

“When I count my blessings, I count you twice.”

These words were sent to me in an email by my friend John
just before he died.

He was a blessing in my life.

Love and hugs
