After the September 11 attack, 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 about the ‘LITTLE’ things.
The head of a 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 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 went back in 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 most 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.
And 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
“Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what
appears to be a negative situation.
Everything that we attract causes us to grow,
which means that ultimately everything is for our
Live life always being thankful to GOD for every
situation, with an attitude of gratitude.
