Two Strangers Meet...


Lets set the scene.
It was a horrible rainy Friday; everyone had their brolly's up and were running for buses and trains hoping to make it and get inside before they get soaked and end up looking like rats. Luckily i made my bus and was first person on it so i got choice of the seats ;) Things were looking good.

The bus started filling up and then you're thinking in your head 'Please please please don't let the smelly person sit next to me!' ; or on days like this - 'Please don't let the person with the soaking wet anorak and massive umbrella sit next to me!'

Luckily for me, neither happened.

So this man gets on and sits next to me, then this second man gets on and sits on the opposite side of the bus. We (slowly) get moving and then the second man says to the first man 'I like your tattoo man' (he had a tattoo of a cross on the back of his forearm). The man said thanks and then asked if he's Christian too. The second man replied saying that he was but his head had got a bit confused lately and having been brought up Christian he then decided to become Muslim and then reverted back to Christian. 

The second man went to get off the bus and said how nice it was to meet. Then, the first man took off his rosary beads from around his neck and offered them to this man; this stranger. The man was quite taken aback but said he would love to and so off he went with these rosary beads.

It was such a lovely sight to see on a Friday evening. To see two strangers from different walks of life being brought together by something they believe in.

Whether we're religious or not it was just a wonderful sight to see in a world where we're constantly being told all of the bad things in the world.

Put such a smile on my face that the rain didn't matter anymore.

Hope you've all had a great weekend :) What have you been upto?
