In the past decade I have seen many of my friends go back to work, for many reasons, after being “at home” with their children. It has been hard to watch at times. I know that most of them, love their jobs and would rather be out in the work force than at home all day while their kiddos are in school, for some it was not a choice they wanted to make, but because of the economy they have had to make adjustments in their lives and go back to work.
It seems that there is always that stage, as a family, they are trying to figure it all out. Trying to get in the swing of things and find a new rhythm for their lives.
What better way to say “I support you” than bringing someone a meal, after they return to the working world. Anytime is good, but I think right away in the first week or two of going back to work is best. And don’t ask them if you can do it. Just do it. Make them something that can be frozen if they would like or can be popped in the oven right away.
I assure you that a “Back to Work” meal will bless your friend in more ways than you can ever imagine!
I would love to know: Have you gone back to work after being home, for a period of time, with your children? Did anyone ever bring you a meal when you went back to work?
