Caring Lesson Now #5
“Are you okay,” said the waitress at Lou Mitchell’s this noon.
I looked up and saw her face. I was seated at the counter, omelet half eaten, reading the emails on my phone.
“I’ve just gotten devastating news,” I said, and explained an unexpected illness of my dearest nursing mentor.
She gasped, patted my arm, and was off. Every time she flew by, she glanced at me, as if to see if I was okay. Pausing once, she said, “You look like you’re in shock.” After patting my arm, she whisked off again on her rounds.
When she came to give me my check, she bent over again, right in front of my face, and asked gently, “Would you like some ice cream?”
I believe God puts people into our lives at just the right time.
