Can You Hear the Whistle Blowing? An Angel Message

Our neighborhood is not far from the railroad tracks and on occasion I hear the train whistle blow from the station.  It stirs up memories of visiting my grandparents in Indiana. Sleeping by an open window on a floor mattress, the lone night whistle awakened restless dreams of travel. An adventure was waiting to be had.

I LOVE to hear the whistle blow.  Something funny happened the last time the train let out a toot.  

 Elliot and I were in the living room talking when I first heard it. I stopped talking to listen, cheering it on, Woo Woo!.  

To my surprise, the whistle blew again... Louder and longer in a harmonic tone that seemed to match my childlike enthusiasm.  

I'm glad Elliot is a witness.  I was stretched out on the sofa when the whistle blew again.  This time a loud familiar tune:  "Shave and a hair cut, two bits!"  

We both burst out laughing.  Maybe your Mom is having fun on the other side, Elliot joked.

 I was thankful for the reminder nothing great can happen without enthusiasm! 

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
