THIS TRAIN RIDE CALLED LIFE

Life is like a journey on a train...with  its stations...with changes of  
routes...and with accidents!  
  
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will
always travel on our side.  
  
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving
us on this journey alone.  
  
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be
significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our
life.  
  
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.  Others will go so
unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats! 
  
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos,
goodbyes, and  farewells. 
  
Success consists of having a good relationship with all
passengers...requiring that we give the best of ourselves. 
  
The mystery to everyone is:  We do  not know at which station we ourselves
will step down.  So, we must  live in the best way - love, forgive, and
offer the best of who we  are.  
  
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down
and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for
those  who will continue to travel on the train of  life. 
  
I wish you a joyful journey for the up coming years on the train of life.
Gather success and give lots of  love. 
  
More importantly, thank God for the journey!  
  
Lastly, I thank you  for being one of the passengers on my train!
