WELCOME ABOARD TO MY FRIENDS.

Several years ago I received this message that impacted me to frame the words and display them where I could read them near my desk. Events of the past few years have included the demise of most of the friends I had and tonight I read this again. Nearing 90 and in sight of the station that will end my ride I decided to share this with everyone I know. I hope you will read this several times and when you see your last station to depart, share it with your family and friends. I have no idea who wrote this but they had to be one of the wisest people on earth.   Clyde Brewer July 4th, 2019

WELCOME ABOARD

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side.

However, at each station Our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on our 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 unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats.

The 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.

(By the way, I am not planning to get off of the train anytime soon but if I do, just remember I am glad you were aboard for part of my journey.)  ANON

Sadly because of two marriages I have great grandchildren I have never met or will ever meet on my train ride of life. Currently I am unable to travel to spend time with 56 current family members, including spouses, with most of them being 3 to 5 hours away. Hopefully the ones I will never see will know I existed? God love them all and if they see as much of America and the world I have seen, their train ride will be spectacular.   Clyde Brewer

    Great thoughts Clyde. I was glad to be on board your train for part of our shared journey.

    Shame you wont know some of your great and grand-children. You have the resources. Why not hire a location close to most of them and have a family reunion.

    Not all will come but those who care will. I did that up in Michigan a two years ago. I paid for the venue and some of the fares. Only three out of 33 did not show.

    For good reason they just could not make it.

    We can’t take it with us old chum. We should spend it while we are here, and while we can.

    • Spiteful behavior by well-educated family members is no reason to upset the family majority. I gave up on the individual who sowed the seeds of hate I regret not having contact with the great grandchildren.
