A conversation with G-d. Baruch HaShem.

The following is a copy and paste of a beautiful piece that I received in the latest Chabad of Scottsdale weekly newsletter from Rabbi Yossi and Dina Levertov:

A friend sent this piece to me. Great reminder to all of us to appreciate all that we have.
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 and 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):  Um.
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.
