For four years I have packed my husband a lunch everyday for work. And to be honest I haven't really enjoyed it all that much. I did not complain or vocalize my dislike, it was just "one of my chores" that I have to do. But this summer it hit me, making my husband's lunch is a GREAT way to show him how much I love him, to refresh him with a little bit of home while he is out in the world, and just a great way to surprise him! So I have bought things that are only for Daddy's lunch. For example, plums, cottage cheese, roasted peanuts. If I have made a batch of cookies (which we pretty much always have cookies, because I have a little helper that LOVES to help) he gets cookies, if I have pears he gets a pear, if I made popcorn the night before I save some in a baggie. And the response I have gotten from Clay is hilarious! Yesterday he called me the lunch queen...I have always wanted to achieve that status. :) He has been so blessed by this little adjustment in my attitude, and so have I! It is fun to pack his lunches now because there is an element of creativity and love that wasn't there before. I just wish I would have thought of this a little earlier, but I thank God (and my husband) for His patience with me! So happy lunch packing!
