Me: G-d, can I ask You a question?
Me: You won’t get angry?
G-d: I won't
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
G-d: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
Me: My car took forever to start
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
G-d: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
G-d: Let Me see, the Angel of Death was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Me (humbled): OH
G-d: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
G-d: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick. I didn’t want you to catch what they have, and I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
G-d: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see, Hashem
G-d: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I’m sorry, Hashem
G-d: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things , the good and the seemingly bad.
Me: I will trust You.
G-d: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won’t, Hashem. And let me just tell You Hashem, thank You for everything today.
G-d: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your G-d and I love looking after My Children…

I have learned:
that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.
that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
that it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts.
that you should never ruin an apology with an excuse.
that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
that you can keep going long after you can’t.
that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.
that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you need to learn to forgive yourself.
that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.
that just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.
that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
that people will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
