A Challenging Monday!

Last Update: September 26, 2016

I'm exhausted, so this post will be very short. I wanted to share my day, which was fraught.

The place I'm doing some work at the moment is a 45 minute train journey from home. Today it took 3.5 hours. Why? Someone threw themselves in front of a fast moving train.

Therefore all trains were cancelled. It's a major incident. On an afternoon/evening like today, it's hard to think of the difficulty of the journey home. I keep wondering what made this person do this.

When something like this happens, it's time to stop, count our blessings and express gratitude.

Have a happy and safe day friends.

My husband use to commute to London for his work and this was a frequent occurrence, it's a sad situation when someone feels so desperate, and no one in their family or friends could see it coming. I feel for the people they leave behind and the person who did it.

There is violence everywhere worse than ever. Thank the Lord if we are spared.

Thank the Lord indeed Mike. It's one of the reasons I avoid listening to news. Too much.

I'm so sorry to hear about that! It is so sad that anyone gets to the point of feeling that hopeless! Life indeed can be very fragile and unpredictable.

The agony I felt this evening was how they got to this place and the devastation left behind - family and friends. Thanks for your insight Linda

Life is getting pretty surreal these days, and obviously not in a good way. Let's all keep praying that it doesn't just keep getting worse. Odds are tomorrow will be better, Chuka.
