Earlier this week, my husband left his lunch at home. I tried calling him before he got too far down the road, but he didn’t hear the phone in his pocket under his coat. This was the second time he left his lunch in about 3 weeks. The first time it happened, one of the men he works with was out this way plowing snow and offered to pick it up. He declined the offer because he knew I would probably be a sleep and I was.
Honoring Our Husband – The Forgotten Lunch
When my husband came home that night, I started to joke with him about not making it anymore if he left it home again. Before I could even start joking with him, he told me about a man at work explaining how he has had to make his own lunch for several years now all because he left it at home. My husband continued telling me how he spoke right up and said, “My wife would never do that. In fact, she would tell you, it is part of her job. From the day we got married, she has made my lunch, no questions asked.” When I hear about working men having to do something at home because a wife refuses to do it, it breaks my heart. A wife is suppose to be their husband’s helper. It’s an honor for me to get up early, cook breakfast and pack a lunchbox.
When I heard all of the situation I felt good. Boy, I’m glad I did not have the chance to joke with my husband. Yes, I could have because he is that kind of person, but I did not want to ruin the fuzzy feeling we were experiencing.
A simple packed lunch can make a happy husband!
