Thoughtfulness On The Elevated Train


anecdotal stories
A young man who rode the elevated train to work regularly noticed that in one place where the train moved slowly, he could see into a room where an elderly woman was apparently convalescing. For several weeks he had observed her there, so one day he learned the woman’s name and sent her a get-well card, signing it, “Just a young man who rides the elevated train.”

A week later as he rode the train homeward through the dusk he noted that the bed was empty and a sign, illuminated by a table lamp, was hanging on the window. It read, “Bless you.”

But encourage one another every day, as long as it is still called “today.” – Hebrews 3:13 (NASB)
