Don't Worry, He's A Big Boy He Can Take Care Of Himself...
Really, when I hear that from married women,
Or those who are engaged, it bothers me!
Having a desire for wanting to do things for your husband,
They love to have their wives pamper them!
I am not talking about being their slaves;
But rather a helpmate...
Men enjoy having a nice meal prepared for them!
They enjoy having clean laundry!
They enjoy having someone wait on them after a long day or night working.
Look, my husband is perfectly capable to do most everything,
And that is my point...
I want him to want and need my help,
It is not like a child that is learning to take care of one's self,
I believe we take all the joy and the need out of taking care of them,
By simply expecting them to do everything for themselves!
This applies to stay at home wives;
And it applies to those who work outside the home!!
I will tell you this, as I have been taking the initiative to help
My husband all my married years, he in return helps me.
He knows when we are in the thick of something he will pitch
He knows I have made him my first person in my priority list in my life!
I see being a helper requires a bit of imagination,
As he can have a secretary or a crew under him;
But he has you as his wife...
What can you do just for him that makes his life better??
You already know what you want or need to make your life better;
So give this some thought!
And please do not say that phrase
"Oh, He's a big boy he can take care of himself"
Yes, I am sure he is and you would feel pretty sad if he did not prefer
It is even wise to train your children to show their Dad, love and honor!
We live in a "ME" culture, and it has overflowed into
Marriage and the helper portion of "I DO"
A Good Marriage Is Really Very Special And Sweet...
And It Is Not Made In Heaven;
But, Rather Worked Out Here On Earth!
