What's for Lunch?
Last Friday my husband was working from home. When three extra children showed up at my house, I went in and distracted my husband. I complained they were over taking the house, and that it was lunch time. I didn't want to feed them. He said you remember what they said in conference don't you? I fibbed I said I didn't have any idea what he was talking about. He was referring to talk a couple years back, given by some general authority about how you should make your home a place that your children and their friends want to hang out, even if that means feeding them. I have no idea the reference but I remember the talk. I told my husband I didn't know what he was talking about and I didn't need to feed friends. Five minutes later all four children ran outside to play. Ten minutes after that, my neighbor called me on the phone asking how many chicken nuggets my son wanted for lunch? He was cooking some for this two kids so he figured my son might as well eat up too. My son ate three dinosaur chicken nuggets for lunch, one more then I ordered, while I ate a huge piece of humble pie for lunch, that and left over Hawaiian haystacks.
