Dear Eloise, I must say you are as sweet as your sister. I'm lost for words but someone just sent this to me & as I read the poem Kerrygirl came to mind... Hope you enjoy the poem.... Peace of the Lord be with you all....
THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL. I AM HONORED TO HAVE RECEIVED IT, AND SEND IT TO YOU.
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 your life. Many will step down
and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize 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 on the train of life. Reap 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.
