Moving on the train of life

Who are the passengers on your train?
Father and son..starting their journey..(Clearwater, Florida)
 Good Morning...
This was sent to me today...and I wanted to share it with you...I think you'll agree it is very profound...
As we grow and many people are, or have been instrumental in the events of our lives, some good, some bad..but all are contributing to the person we become or are becoming.
We are the conductor's of our train, we can decide who should take this ride with us. (that is after our parents gave us the ticket to ride..).
"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven". Ecclesiates 3:1
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 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   .

Here are more encouraging quotes for our journey..

"Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination...the best is yet to come"...
"No road is long with good company.."  Turkish Proverb
"When you come to the end of the rope, tie a knot and hang on!"  
                                                                                              Franklin Roosevelt
"People often tell me that motivation doesn't last, and I tell them that bathing doesn't either.  That's why I recommend it daily "
