Why would a person feel blessed? Why would one bless someone for sneezing or having difficulty? What is blessed anyway? Good old Websters has several variances you can read here. Several are religion connected. Two definitions spoke to her or, more specifically, to her experience: 1) of or enjoying happiness; 2) bringing pleasure. To be in a room full of abused women, to rub their hands with oil, dip in warm wax, wrap in mittens while telling them they can rebuild their lives. She knew they could because she had. Giving and receiving happiness from a once dark place.
