Slip a Ham Sandwich Under the Door

Nora used to tell us that.

Nora is a friend on an old mom's email list I attended for years. She has a son, whom she homeschooled. As we talked on our list, she would talk about how he would be so involved as a teen in his projects and her role was to:

"Slip a ham sandwich under the door.." as he worked.

Nora, I have thought of you so often and slipped many a sandwich, metaphorically or actually!


  1. But does the grateful teenager return the plate to the kitchen? Mine never does!

  2. I so remember that comment! What great conversations we had and what an inspiration they all were to parent more like our Lord parents us.
