Making Strangers Happy
15 September 2014

The footbridge to Clarkston hangs above the train tracks.  A train was approaching, rumbling across the lines towards us.  A girl of about four years old was standing while her mother squatted beside her and they waved enthusiastically at the train.  

A magical thing suddenly happened - the air was filled with a deafening booming sound as the driver sounded his whistle!  The little girl was overjoyed and I found I was standing there with tears in my eyes as I realised how easy it is to make other people happy, even if those people are strangers.  It was a reminder to me to take opportunities to be pleasant, to spread happiness wherever possible and to appreciate other people.
