Blessed Are You Blessed are you who
take the time to listen to difficult speech.
For you help me to now that if I persevere, I can be understood.
Blessed are you who never bid me to "hurry up" or take my tasks from me.
And do them for me, for often I need time rather than help.
Blessed are you who stand beside me as I enter new and tried ventures.
For my failures will be outweighted by the times I surprise myself and you.
Blessed are you who asked for my help, for my greatest need is to be needed.
Blessed are you who understand that it is difficult for me to put my thoughts into words.
Blessed are you who with a smile, encourage me to try once more.
Blessed are you who never remind me that today I asked the same question twice.
Blessed are you who respect me and love me just as I am.
