The Little things...!!!

The day did not start to well this morning and I got to the museum in a rush .... where I then had to wait for a college group who were booked in for 10am ... but did not arrive for another 40 minutes, but all went well in the end... I came home and decided to check the emails and blogs ...and "Voila" there on DD blog was this following missive so I thought I would copy it for you all..... so the next time things don't go to plan  just stop and think on it.

Why people survived 9/11 in NY  ......

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.
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.

I actually think the same way... except that it's my dad who stops me from being at a certain point for an unknown reason!
Lovely verse! :)
