A blessing is being able to have a child
Seeing his or her bright eyes and smile

A blessing is the clear blue sky, the green grass
A smile or a hello to a stranger as you walk pass

A blessing is having family and friends that love you
And sticks together in good and bad times like glue

A blessing is having a faithful and respectful companion or spouse
Wanting to go to a peaceful and cheery home free of louse

A blessing is having clothes, food, a car, a house or apartment
And being able to pay some debts with dollar bills and cents

A blessing is having God here, there and everywhere
Giving much happiness, joy, and tender loving care
