Fw: Try To Remember

The 'L I T T L E' things .
           As you might know, 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.

           car wouldn't start.

           One went back to
           answer the telephone.

           One had a
           child that dawdled
           and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.

           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;
            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, 
            There is NO LUCK attached.
            If you delete this, it's okay:
            God's Love Is Not Dependent On E-Mail !!
