It never ceases to amaze and frustrate me how quickly God's people will slap the 'blessing' tag on almost antyhing. Cars, houses, jobs, relationships, money, etc. all fall into the 'blessing' category for some folks, even though each of those things have been known to cause people severe spiritual trauma. Perhaps, people forget Proverbs 10:22, "The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it." Or a simpler saying, "All tht glitters is not gold." Or a dominoes maxim, "All money ain't good money." If something good can also break your heart, then maybe that is not a blessing. Or how about this: if the good I receive is something also abundantly available to the unregenerate, then maybe that is not a blessing - maybe it did not even come from God. Let's look into being sure the good we receive is indeed a blessing. And let's not overlook the blessing in what we might not consider good.
