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)
