Gift In A Lunch Box

One of the highlights back when I was a girl attending school was opening my lunch pail(and I did actually have a little pail for a while)and finding out what was tucked inside. Was it a good lunch day ? those happened after my parents had made a trip to the market and bought a case of bananas,a box of cookies  and a bag of apples.
My lunch somehow did way more than nourish me physically, it seemed to demonstrate tangibly that I was loved.

I thought about this recently as I tackled the morning chore of lunch packing.First I pack my husbands,and send him off to his work with a kiss and a coffee,next I decide what my four children will be dining on come lunch time.(my oldest is away at college so I have one less than I did have for many years.)

I know many people have their kids pack their own lunches.While mine do help, especially on the scramble mornings....I really do find this to be a special Mom privilege. When you think about it, it really is like packing them a little gift.
Something they can look forward to in the middle of their day and hopefully taste the love in every bite:)

this little cupcake notebook was a birthday gift from my youngest two...just the thing to write a wee note on and tuck in the lunch box on occasion...

The highest reward for man's toil is not what he gets for it
                   but what he becomes by it.

  1. That is so sweet. I have to admit that I'm not a good lunch maker or packer. When I taught school my husband made my lunch! Eeek, I know. If he didn't, I'd eat an orange. Anyway, now that I homeschool I don't have the issue. Sometimes when people say they could never homeschool, I always think how I'd struggle to pack lunches! I like the way you do it, and on those rare days we have field trips and pack lunches, I'm going to remember this. Thanks:)


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
