In brief: I see having any

Chronic disease is another problem or illness we as humans need to get used to and deal with.
One could say there are worse diseases then arthritis biu to say arthritis is a blessing is hard for me to strongly support. I wish i could be a better confidence booster. We just have to remember there are more treatments for arthritis now then in the past.

In brief: Interesting

Never heard this question.
A blessing? Not sure about that. First of all, we all will get arthritis (wear and tear) of the spine and joints as we age. Second, having arthritis may or may not cause pain or dysfunction. As of the question of blessing, i suppose that's in the eye of the beholder.
