Sometimes it is the most common things that give me pleasure. For example, a couple of nights ago I found myself chuckling when just as the country song I was listening to referenced the sound a train whistle, a real train started to go by blowing it’s whistle.
While I have been listening to country music since the 1970s (i.e, not an uncommon thing for me to do) and we hear train whistles multiple times a day where we live, the juxtaposition of the song lyric and actual train whistle struck me as funny.
And that is what I am grateful for today – the many time things like that happen. Things which on their own are common ordinary every day things, but which come together at just the right time to add a bit of sparkle and laughter to our lives.
