You probably have seen part of this but still worth a second read—will make you think I am sure

The ' L I T T L E ' 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,

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.

Pass this on to someone else, if you'd like.
There is NO LUCK attached.
If you delete this, it's okay:
God's Love Is Not Dependent On E-Mail.

That's the cool part.
A M E N.

Be Blessed!!!

I SO love this!!!! Never saw this before but seems fitting especially for me right now!! I'm always telling someone else Everything happens for a reason. God always comes through for me in some kind of way!!! Sometimes you just have to look through someone else's eyes!! I'll try to remember this next time I'm cursing the traffic light!! ;) Ellen (smiling again!) :)

Have had many little moments like those in my life both before and after 9/11.
One time was when my husband was driving a semitruck. He was assigned a load that someone else ended up picking up insted of him. Three days later I heard about horrific accident on the interstate in the fog, where severl truckers died. When he called me that night I asked him to figure out where he would have been that morning if he had picked up the load. The next day he told me. He would have been right about there in the fog. He would most likely have either been an eyewitness or involved in the crash.

I have read this before but it is worth reading again. So we have diabetis. We have so much to be thankfull for, a roof over our head, food on the table, freedom of speech and freedom of religion. I could go on and on. I thank God for who and what I am.

Yes, He does, and we see it often. ;-) I wish you could see the original. My daughter emailed it to me. It is animated, but that part won't work here. If you want me to email it to you, just Message my Inbox and leave me your email address. ;-) Mara

I have read this before, and it makes me stop and think each and every time. Thanks, and we need to still remember those that lost loved ones on that fateful day and thank the firemen/ladies & police in our community for the potential sacrifice they offer each day.

I couldn't agree more! You know, a number of those firemen and police who responded to ground zero are now suffering with cancer,
