Dear all,

She was able to become a doctor thanks to her professor at college. She thinks that meeting him was a blessing for her.

I made it up. Is a blessiing always associated with God? Or do you often use it just to mean a happy event with no religious connotations?

    Its primary usage I would say is a religious one, but it can be used as you've done there just to describe a very lucky event for which someone is extremely grateful.
