Blessing. Bless you. Blessed. God Bless. I am blessed. You are blessed. Bless.
The word, in its many forms, is overused. Hashtagged. Blown into the wind like an air kiss. Tossed away.
Get up off your knees and walk.
Use your hands to climb, to build.
My arms are open and ready to receive you. Not as a god would, but as one with faults and bruises.
You are blessed. God bless you. Bless.
A word, useless.
Instead, take these words of blessing and use them: For every one who discards you, another will hold you more tightly.
Today, and every day, I hold my hand over your heart.
I bless you.
