Happy new year


Life is like a journey on a train...

with its stations...

with changes of routes...

and with accidents !


We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.


We believe they will always travel on this train with us.


However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.


As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant - our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.


Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.


Many will go so unnoticed that we won't even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !


This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.


A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers...

and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.


The mystery of this fabulous journey is :

We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get off.


So, we must live in the best way - adjust, forget, forgive and offer the best of what we have.


It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat... we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life."


Thank you for being one of the important passengers on my train... don't know when my station will come... don't want 2 miss saying: "Thank you"


Wishing you a happy2⃣0⃣1⃣6⃣ in advance 🌹🌸

  • That is such a beautiful illustration of life Hollie, I love it. The other one I heard years ago was, we are all a coloured thread, weaving a huge picture. We can't see the big picture, but as we come together with other colours and threads we create an important part of the whole image. Some parts of this image are dark and others are bright and cheery, but all are important. Some threads stay with us, but others move on to another part of the picture.

    A beautiful start to the New Year, may you have a good one! MariLiz

  • a lot of truth in that. I travel by train quite a lot and it's wonderful how many people touch our lives even for a little
