God Squad: Be grateful for any and all blessings God has bestowed upon you

Q: Upon celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary a couple may exclaim, “God has been so good to us!” My wife died after we celebrated our 25th anniversary. Should I say that God was not as good to us, or worse that he punished us? I know that the answer lies in the biblical story of Job, but I’m having a hard time applying Job to myself. Could you please help me? – E, Little Neck, N.Y.
