Nowadays, people don’t always believe in true love. Some people think that with time it begins to fade, especially if you’ve been married for over four decades like Tracy and Clifford Howell have been.
However, the cute couple from Texas recently proved many wrongs. Tracy shared with her Facebook friends an image of a sandwich with a bite on it, and explained why she’s been doing it for almost 41 years.
According to her post, she has been making her husband’s lunch every working day since they’ve been married. Sometimes she would come to his job and have lunch with him, which he’d appreciate greatly. He even made a comment that lunch tasted better when it’s shared with someone you love. That’s when she came up with a brilliant idea.
“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,” she wrote on her Facebook page.
Can this couple be any cuter? Clearly, the people of Facebook feel the same, which is why her post currently has over 33,000 reactions and 118,000 shares.
