Most of the time when I get email forwards I delete them without reading them. (no offense if you send them to me :) I got one this morning from a dear friend that I haven't seen in a few years and actually read it. I have no idea whether any of it is true or not but I've been feeling pretty down lately about my inability to keep up with the housework, let alone dig myself out of the mountains of clutter that have been accumulating, and this kind of helped put things back in perspective:
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 the bus.
One spilled food on her clothes
and had to take time to change.
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
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.
Kind of makes you think, doesn't it.
