    "When I Count My Blessings I count you twice 'cuz it's
    a miracle come true that you're even apart of my life
    I have so much to be thankful for and I thank God
    everyday and everynight but When I Count My Blessings
    darling I always count you twice...well it's true we
    often get distracted with the world pulling us in many
    different directions but I guess that's life in the
    big city still like a river that always finds it's way
    to the sea I always find my way back to you,you always
    find your way back to me...love is not taken for
    granted even when it's not said often enough we are one
    in the same like an ember to a flame and that's one
    thing I know will never change...I have so much to be
    thankful for and I thank God everyday and everynight
    but When I Count My Blessings I always,I always count
    you twice!

    Simple, the person being referred to is counted twice because they are such a good blessing.

    If I count my fiancee twice when I count my blessings, it is because she is such a great blessing upon me, I have been blessed by her.
