“Life is like a train ride. We get on, we ride, we get off. We get back on and ride some more. There are accidents and there are delays. At certain stops there are surprises. Some of these will translate into great moments of joy, some will result in profound sorrow. …”

This is the beginning of an inspirational piece I saw a few years ago. (Be sure to view the link above.) I was reminded of it earlier today by a friend whose mother recently passed away. I have searched the internet over looking for the original author but without any success. Some credit the words to a short book called “The Station,” but I can’t locate that either. I’ve seen the photos attributed to Kim Anderson. The complete text is shared on another blog, along with a YouTube version of this piece.
Good night, my friends. I’m glad we share the same train.
