Daily Prompt:  Tender


My husband collected model trains.  His favorite line was the Pennsylvania Rail Road. He had so many locomotives with their matching tenders that he used to keep by themselves to display along the walls of his train room.  My favorite line is the Chessie System.  it’s no longer called that, but it’s logo used to be a kitten.  So, Gary also had several locomotives and tenders in that line as well.  A tender is the car that was right behind the steam engine which held the coal that was used to fuel the fire for the steam.

He had his train from when he was a child and I had mine.  Both of us grew up with trains being a part of our Christmas holidays.  So, when we had children, each of them got a train set for their first Christmas.  Every year we added to the layout and the rolling stock.  My son got trains at Christmas for several years.  All of our kids love trains just like Gary and I do.

We have four grandchildren now and they love trains too.  We got the boys several sets over the years and both girls got a set for their first Christmas.  I am so happy that the kids have the trains their grandfather got for them.  They will have memories of their Pop Pop and their trains.

I have so many memories of Christmas’ and trains through the years.


2017 Kindness Challenge: Week 5

2017 Kindness Challenge:  Choosing Kindness

I grew up in the north east part of the country.  Many people who live up there look at you as if you have two heads when you say hello to them on the street.  I really didn’t know that there were places where strangers spoke to each other and it was not only accepted, but expected.

My first trip to the south was a real eye opener.  Strangers would speak to me with smiles on their faces.  Now I am not saying that everyone in the south displays this kindness. There are no absolutes here, but the overall attitude is one of friendliness and kindness. Which I hate to say is not necessarily how it is where I come from.

I began to speak to strangers when I returned home and was surprised how good I felt doing so.  And after speaking to people I didn’t know that I would see often at the grocery store or other places I frequented, I wore them down and they began to smile and say hello to me too.

So this weeks challenge is something I have already been working on.  I do try to always put myself in someone else’s situation and be more accepting of their reactions.  I have always been a little intolerant with some of my responses to things beyond my control.  I am working very hard to not respond unkindly to the messengers.  I think I am making progress.

Colossians 3:12  Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience
