Today is one day all husbands should be aware of. It is perhaps one of the most under appreciated days of the year for one of the most under appreciated people in the world, a wife. She deserves a lot of credit just for putting up with her husband but she generally takes care of the house, cooks the meals, tends to the children (if there are any), and is still expected to be sexy enough to drive her husband wild.
Keeping a house clean is a 40 hour job a week just by itself. There are the clothes to wash, the dishes to clean, the dust bunnies to catch… Then add to that the cooking, which is generally a complex job multiplied by the number of people that have to be served. In most families, every person likes something different and while it might be easier to make them all eat the same thing, most moms will fix what they know their loved ones will eat.
There is the laundry to do, sewing, taking children to where they need to go and most wives still work a 40 hour a week job. They are also supposed to look nice, have pretty hair-dos and finished fingernails and toenails. They are supposed to understand their husbands whims, his short comings, and allow him to still be a little boy at heart from time to time.
Oh, and they are expected to take care of the pets, make sure they are fed and receive the vet visits when required. And they are expects to do it all with a smile on their faces and not complain. In other words, they are expected to be super human!
Now all wives may not live up to all the expectations. They may have a failing here or there but then, husbands have no defense to offer. No one is perfect but even making the effort to be is well worth being rewarded. So if you are lucky enough to have a wife, appreciate her for who she is. Help out a little bit and try to make her life better, after all that’s what she is doing for her husband.
How to celebrate – Take your wife to her favorite restaurant. Bring her some flowers, or candy or something to let her know she is special. Spend the day doing what she wants to do (I know its Sunday and football season but there will be other games and other days. Hopefully this is your one and only wife.)
