What a compliment!

Last night I was sitting at Reese's Red Sox game and a sweet old lady turned around to me and said, "Is that little boy yours?" (pointing to Reese) I said yes and then she gave me (and Greg) the most wonderful compliment I have ever received in all my years of parenting (all 6 1/2 years;) She says, "I was just telling my son that you can tell that that little boy has been loved all his life!"
I was taken back at first and then it sank in. Wow--what a blessing of a compliment! I just had such a feeling of peace and encouragement come over me. As I was taking it in she turned around and said, "I know this because I was a teacher for 30 years and a MaMa for more!" I told her she was more than qualified to make such a judgment;)
