why things happen

A conversation with G-d:
Me: G-d, can I ask You a question?
G-d: Sure
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
G-d: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start
G-d: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
G-d: Huummm
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.
Me: (ashamed)
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.
Me (embarrassed):Okay
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…
