What Does It Mean to Be Blessed?

What does it really mean to be blessed? We’ve all had the conversations where someone describes something good that’s happened to them and then says, “We’re blessed.” The implication is because something good has happened, that must mean that God has given his blessing. But what about when something bad happens? Are we still blessed? When someone says, “I lost my job today…”, is it appropriate to follow that with, “…guess you’re not blessed”?
