Day 12 – Think About the Restaurant Customers (12 Days of Encouragement for the Chef’s Family)

Tags: ,

To conclude this series, today let’s think about all the customers that are going into the restaurants our chefs are working in.

For me, I picture a large fine dining restaurant, where people are dressed up, ready to meet family and friends to celebrate Christmas or just to enjoy a nice meal in the midst of all the hussle and bussle.

(Although I have to be honest.  I am at the point where I have to ask my husband what restaurant he’s going to be at each day, because of transitioning into a new position at work.  But for the holidays, I picture him at my favorite one!)

While I might be out and about doing things with the kids (because remember, I refuse to sit and home and be lonely and miserable this time of year), someone is enjoying my chef/husband’s cooking.

 12 days of encouragement for the chefs familySomeone is getting dressed up to enjoy time with family and friends.

Someone is celebrating.

My chef/husband gets to be part of that.

He gets to be part of making their night special.

He gets to be part of a night they might always remember.

He gets to be the part that makes them say, “That is the best _______ I have ever had!”

So while we might not get to enjoy his cooking much this time of year, I’m glad someone else is.  He’s really good at what he does.  And I’m glad he’s able to share that with others this time of year.

Thanks for hanging in there with me these past 12 days.  I hope these daily posts have been an encouragement to you.

I pray for you often, my fellow chef wife/girlfriend.  I might not know your name, but I know what you’re feeling and what you are going through.

If there is a specific way I can pray for you and your family or if you just want to chat, feel free to comment below or send me an email.

From one chef’s wife to another,

    Thank you for your inspiration! My husband is also a chef and I have felt very much the same way on all the things you have written about. The hardest part of being a chef’s wife: no one really knows what its like. Its really hard and lonely so it was nice to read someone else has the same feelings.
