peanuts celebrate the little things 240x300 Your Inspirational Quote Friday May 20 2011With the killing of Osama bin Laden over 2 weeks ago, I came across the following short story about “9/11″ and how God watches over us.

Remember to hug and tell your loved ones, every day how much you love them. You never know if that will be the last time.

Also, as the book says …”Don’t sweat, the small stuff and remember it is all small stuff.”

The Little Things Mean Alot~How God Watches Over Us Around The World


As you might know, the head of a major company survived the tragedy of “9/11″ in New York 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.

One’s 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.

The 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 and appreciate their possible purpose.
