Alexander’s Blessing

     Okay, one more day of humor. This is a house blessing that I wrote a couple of years ago, after the dust settled on my mother-in-law‘s estate, and we (my wife and I) bought out the other “interested” parties and we realized that we needed, all of the help we could get. And definitely some sort of “Divine Intervention” would be required. So here is the request that I humbly submitted.

     Please stay safe this Saturday,


To all of you from


 Bless the windows,

bless the doors,

bless the ceiling,

bless the floors,

and please don’t forget,

the halls and walls.


Bless my dog,

bless my spouse,

bless the cat,

to catch the mouse,

and bless, the brand new,

glassed-in, shower stall.


Bless the attic,

bless the roof,

bless the basement,

bless the stoop,

and always, bless the toilet,

when, nature calls.


Bless the table,

bless the chairs,

bless the sofa,

bless the stairs,

oh, what the heck,

why not, bless it all.


Yes, bless this home,

bless the lot,

and, bless anything else,

that I forgot,

but mostly, bless the people,

big and small.
