What you said about being "blessed all the way around" (what a nice phrase!) made me think of something Bob Dylan once said.
When Rolling Stone
interviewed Dylan on the occasion of his 50th birthday, in 1991, they asked him, "Are you happy?"
He apparently fell silent for a few moments and stared at his hands. "You know," he said, "these are yuppie words, happiness and unhappiness. It's not happiness or unhappiness, it's either blessed or unblessed."
I've thought about that line a lot over the years. I even made a collage
inspired by it, using a hand that sort of looks like the hand of a priest giving a blessing.
Happy and unhappy are fluid emotions, moving through us in a stream. But blessed is a state we can be in all the time. I feel blessed, too, Deanall the way around.
