comment Non-religious word for “blessed”
Given current usage, I very much doubt blessed is strictly considered religious (whatever that might mean). A similar word is thankful, which is rarely ever ascribed to any deity in particular in popular usage.

revised Which is correct: “So far as I know” or “As far as I know”?
