One of my Grandma's favorite sayings is: "I'm just trying to be a blessing." I know we need to bless others, but I don't think we should rob others of their chance to bless as well. We shouldn't be focused on being so independent that we don't allow others to "be a blessing."

When have you let someone be a blessing for you?
Do you struggle with being blessed and always want to be the one blessing?
Can you be a gracious receiver?
Why don't we practice being thankful to others, as well as to God.
