Count your blessings in Russian: How to say?

Unfortunately, there is no direct translation in Russian of such a wonderful phrase as count your blessing. But you can express the same idea with different words.

For example, you can say:

Будь благода́рен за то, что име́ешь.
[but’ bla-ga-dá-ryen za to, chto ee-myé-eesh’]
Be thankful for what you have.

The phrase above is in informal tone and addressed to a male person. Let’s see how you can say the same thing to a female person, to a few people or in formal tone:

Будь благода́рна за то, что име́ешь.
[but’ bla-ga-dár-na za to, chto ee-myé-eesh’]
Be thankful for what you have. (informal, singular, female)

Бу́дьте благода́рны за то, что име́ете.
[but’-tye bla-ga-dár-ny za to, chto ee-myé-ee-tye]
Be thankful for what you have. (formal or plural)

All these examples are based on the word благода́рен which comes from the verb благодари́ть. You can listen to its pronunciation and see some examples below.
