    When people say"you are blessed", how can I reply?

    People said "you are(were) blessed" sometimes to me, or by the end of texting message, some would ending up with "blessing". Then how can I reply?

    Thanks,

    That depends on why they say/said that. Context is important.

    What do you mean by "context"?

    Context is all the information surrounding the language that is being discussed.

    If I holler "Get out of here", it is difficult to understand the intended meaning. If I tell you that the building is on fire, it helps you to understand. That is context.

    Re: When people say"you are blessed", how can I reply?

    Situation 1:
    A:I am going out of town for training next week.
    B: You were blessed.

    Situation 2:
    No matter what people talk about by texting, some would end up their message by "blessing".

    What do they mean in the two situations? AND how to reply?

    I have no idea what "blessed" has to do with out of town training.
