Wives are wonderful


"Wives are wonderful... I think everyone should have one." A phrase that I repeat on occasion. I'm being a bit silly, but it comes out of my deep appreciation for my wife. Shoot, I'd get her one if I thought I could. :)

Sometimes I am reminded how well we get along. We share the same religious beliefs. We have a very strong focus on raising our children. She chose to stop working so that she could spend time raising our kids, and I have supported her in that. I wouldn't mind her working, but only to know that she could take care of herself should anything happen to me. I admit that we don't agree on everything, but we do agree on most things, and the things we don't agree on are usually not worth fighting over. After all, I do like the house a little cooler than she usually does.

We see lots of "drama" in various parts of our extended family. We've even been told that we must be "holding out". But we are just not that interesting.

Well, I am sure that I am not nearly as eloquent as my wife, but I very much appreciate her and the hard work she puts into making a great marriage.
