The Little things

After Sept. 11th, one company invited the remaining members of other companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers

to share ! their available office space.

At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these people were alive... and all the stories were just:

e 'L I TT L E' things.

As you might know, the head of the company survived

that day 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.

he 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.


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.
