911 - Little Things Matter

Posted by M ws On Tuesday, September 11, 2012 2 comments
After the New York 9/11 tragedy, this message was circulated and serves as a good reminder that little things do matter. Take care and have a nice day.

~The ' L I T T L E ' 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 his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.

One's 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 jam, or miss an elevator, or turn back to answer a ringing telephone...

And when I remember all the little things that annoy me,I think to myself that this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment..

So the next time your morning seems to be going wrong, if the children are slow getting dressed,
or when you can't seem to find the car keys, and then 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.

Pass this on to someone else, if you'd like to inspire someone.

Have a lovely day!

    CLY I have also read about people with intuitive feelings about something bad was about to happen and they did not go into the building. Some even predicted the disaster weeks before but of course nobody believed them.
    Like animals, humans too have ability to sense disaster but would not believe in it and hence has lost the ability.
    I did not believe in this type of extrasensory ability until my good friend has a dramatic experience. He was in a university in Kuala Lumpur. While studying in the library one night, he had a vision, like a video of someone being knock down by a motorcycle. It was like a You-tube video playing in his head but in black and white. True enough, just an hour later he got a phone call from his family that his grandmother passed away on the way to the hospital. She was knocked down by a motorcycle. And the vision he saw was exactly the site of the incident and at time of his vision. And his late grandmother was about 100 km away!
    Then he started to believe in his intuition. He can sense, danger especially when he is driving, just like Spiderman. He would then slow down and be extra careful. He could sense that that a road ahead is jammed and take an alternative road. It is useful for him in mahjong games, guiding him on which tiles to discard.
    It is possible that many life have been saved when they trusted their intuition. And many lives were lost because they did not.

    masterwordsmith Dear CLY

    Thank you for sharing so openly.

    I believe in what you shared for the simple reason that I too have this gift.

    And yes, people, including my own family, thought I was cuckoo till it all came true. On particular incident came true two years later and another one 6 mths later.

    Unfortunately, all but ONE of my intuitive feelings are bad omens :-(.

    It is not a nice 'gift/ability' to have. For some time, I closed my mind to such convictions/visions/voices but sooner or later, they came back in a stronger way.

    There are times though when I cannot discern between a true intuition or plain worrying or an over imaginative mind!

    And that is how I sometimes get stressed out.

    Take care and God bless!!!

    Best wishes
