THE LITTLE THINGS

 

As you might remember, the head of a company survived 
9/11
  because his son started kindergarten. 

Another fellow was alive because it was
 
His turn to bring donuts.
 

One woman was late because her
 
Alarm clock didn't go off in time. 

One was late because of being stuck on the
 NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
 

One of them
 
Missed his bus.
 

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
 

One's
 
Car wouldn't start.
 

One couldn't
 
Get a taxi.
 

The one that struck me was the man
 
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
 
Took the various means to get to work
 
But before he got there, he developed
 
A  blister on his foot.
 

He stopped at a drugstore
 to buy a Band-Aid. 
That is why he is alive today..
 

Now when I am
 
Stuck in traffic ,
 
Miss an elevator, 
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone
 ...

All the little things that annoy me. 
I think to myself, 
This is exactly where
 
God wants me to be 

At this very moment.. 

Next time your morning seems to be 
Going wrong
 , 

The children are slow getting dressed,
 
You can't seem to find the car keys,
 
You hit every
 traffic light,
Don't get mad or frustrated;
 
It May be just that
 
God is at work watching over you.
 

May God continue to bless you
 
With all those annoying little things
 
And may you remember their possible purpose.
