Thoughts on Dinner

CIMG3723A sweet older friend of mine recently became a widow.  She was talking to me the other day and asking me about married life.  We chatted about the simple but special moments of being at home together and cooking dinner for him.  She shared that of the many things she misses about having her husband around it was cooking dinner for him that she missed the most.  She said now that he is gone cooking is just not the same and that she does not enjoy it any longer.

My heart broke as she shared these tender words while fighting back tears.  Yet I could not help but learn from this wise woman’s experience.  Enjoy your husband.  Enjoy the day to day life you have.  It is not about the big things but rather the daily tasks which we often take for granted that become so precious and missed when gone.
