Stranger On The Train

There were three other passengers in that compartment. Two of them were quite elderly, while one was a young man. My daughter was crying, missing her dad. I tried to console her, but to no avail. I tried giving her water, then some biscuits, but her crying would not cease. By this time I was getting worried about the disturbance being caused to the others. One of the oldies was dozing, but the other seemed to fly off the handle. However much I tried, the sobbing continued.
Just then the young man offered to take my baby into his arms. He stood with her near the window and started talking to her in a soothing voice. My daughter stopped crying slowly, listening to his baby talk. I was both surprised and relieved especially because the disgruntled elder was now happily reading his book. The stranger handed my daughter back once she was in a sleepy daze. I thanked the miracle worker profusely and settled down to rest.
During the long train journey this young man continuously helped me. He fed my baby, sang to her and told her innumerable stories. I arrived at my destination, rested and thankful for this man who had come to my rescue.
After so many years, I still remember this stranger on the train with a grateful heart.
Thinking Positively in any situation is likely to get needed help. Power of Positive Thinking is beyond our imagination bringing miraculous blessings in our life.
This story proves that God gives what we need not what we want. He sent you that angel in time.
