But it’s not over…yet.
While you saw a lot of neat and inspiring lunch box ideas last week, I wanted you all to know the reality of my own Happy Home’s lunch box.As you can see, nothing super fancy.Just a peanut butter sandwich (with the crusts cut off) in a regular ole’ random, mismatching Rubbermaid container.
Veggie Straws (in a super exciting Ziplock bag).
Vegetable Puree (because even if I put broccoli in a cute little Bento box, the Happy Buddy still wouldn’t eat it. :-)).
That’s it, Happy Home Friends!
Is the pressure off?? 🙂
I also try to include a love note, joke, or special surprise each day.
This is what the Happy Buddy discovered in his lunch box a few days ago…I found a whole pack of transportation-themed erasers at the Dollar Tree the other day, so I snatched them up and have been sneaking a few in with his lunches.
When the Happy Buddy saw me after school he held up his eraser shouting, “Big Surprise! Big Surprise!”
His joy made it all worth it!
And one last thought on Lunch Boxes before our little celebration ends…
Many years ago, a mom (quite like you and me) packed her son’s lunch.
It was a simple lunch. Just some loaves of bread and 2 small fish.
But that lunch crossed the path of Jesus –
Who took that lunch and used it to feed over 5,000 people.
Want to read about it for yourself? Go HERE.
Your Happy Buddy’s lunches don’t have to look museum-ready.
They don’t even need a lot of expensive accessories.
What they need is your love and faithfulness to prepare them.
Because you never know how God is going to use that lunch for His glory.
Happy Lunch Box Make-ing! 🙂
