Made a difference....

I hope over my life span I will have more blogs with that title.

But today, I received the best compliment ever from Lukus.

I have spent 90% of my day today caring for good friend in need. That has meant dropping everything I could possibly drop today and being by his side. 2 weeks ago, his father went to be with our Lord. At 4:30 this morning, his mother had a stroke. Let's just say that he has had his fair share of heartaches over the past few weeks besides the fact that he is going through a divorce. I can't imagine.
I feel honored that he cares enough to call and wake me up so that I can be there for him. I felt even more touched when his mother gave me the most beautiful crooked smile when I walked in. That crooked smile alone lit up the room for me.

As the day progressed, it called for me to run errands with him, and decide how to get his kids from place to place this afternoon and evening. It all worked out.
Everything went off without any glitches and he has been able to be with his mom.

When finally picking up my own kids from school, I was expalining the story to Lukus. And he says:

Lukus: "Mom, you're too nice"
Me: "Why would you say that?"
Lukus: "Because you are always doing everything for everyone else"
Me: "Well, I love to help other people"
Lukus: "Yeah....you're just like Jesus"

Wow!!! Now, I won't dare say that I amount to that at all. But if I never get another compliment in my lifetime.....that would be okay.

I love Lukus..he is so honest. However I think he has called many things......... fill in the blank.
