Wife shares why she takes a bite of husband's lunch every day

For the last 40 years, Tracy Howell has taken a mouthful of her husband’s lunch before he heads off to work with it.

Writing about it on Facebook, Tracy, from Texas, explained that her little daily ritual is to symbolise having lunch with him even when she’s not there.

She wrote: ‘Clifford and I have been married almost 41 years and I have made his lunch every working day since day one.

‘On occasion, I would join him on the job site and have lunch with him. He made the comment once that lunch tasted better when you share it with someone you love.’

Facebook users said they thought the whole thing was super romantic and commented in their droves.

Tracy explained how Clifford’s comment inspired her to take a bite every day.

She continued: ‘Soon after that while fixing his sandwich one night, I took a bite out of it before putting it away.’ 

‘When he got home (long before cell phones), he commented that someone took a bite out of his sandwich. 

‘I told him that since I couldn’t join him for lunch, I took a bite so he knew I was joining him. 

‘I continue to do this frequently (unless it’s tuna or pimento cheese), and he still says, “saw you joined me for lunch today and it sure was good”.’

More than 23,000 people liked Tracy’s post, saying her gesture was sweet.

‘This is so special. You have a role model marriage,’ commented one person while another said: ‘That’s how it’s supposed to be and so seldom is.’.

A third added: ‘I can see how your love has stayed strong for 41 years, happy anniversary’.
