Words are powerful tool. They can create, they can destroy, they can build, and they can tear apart.
An adage says, “Behind every successful man, there is a woman”.
Appreciating your wife is one of the important and beneficial things for your marriage. As we all know women are move by just a little thing. Appreciating them will bring brightness into the home.
As human it’s our nature to want to know and feel, we are appreciated for what we do.
As discussed in column, Women Focus a mother is the one person that went through the pains of labour and delivery to bring forth the children that will be your upspring, and also the person that ensure that life functions in an orderly manner from breakfast, lunch, dinner being served at the table, to clothes being ironed and kept in the wardrobe, to the kitchen always being stocked up with food, the bed being perfectly made, the children sleeping in the parlour being taken to their room to sleep properly on their bed, to checking on the children in school, to closing from work to pick them back home, to making sure they did their homework, to making sure every member of the family feel at home, back to making Daddy feel like a man. The list is endless.
Every man reaches greater heights when he has the right woman by his side. Sure, a man can do a lot on his own, but a good support system takes him much further and that support comes first and foremost from his home life (wife).
Your wife is there to be your brick wall, to hold you up. As a husband and as well as a leader, the health of your marriage directly affects the impact of your leadership. Being effective at work or in ministry begins by being effective at home. If someone (wife) is not there to encourage and support you or you don’t have a stable home, it will tell on everything aspect of your life. Your wife brings the best in you.
Encouragement from your wife is a powerful force for good which every man will need for positive reinforcement, that is why when a man is down and his wife gives him a word of encouragement, it went a long way to strengthen him.
A wife has been the one behind a successful husband, has impacted him, motivated him, supported him, sacrifice for him so that he can do whatever he wants.
That why Women Focus is using this medium to tell the men to appreciate their wives who have in one way of the other sacrificed their happiness, joy, career, dreams, visions, aspirations to make it up to their husband.
Husbands should appreciate by praising her efforts behind the success of the marriage. Have you noticed that when you praise someone for doing good thing, the person will want to do more? So it is to your wife. Why some men are not really getting the best from their wives is because they lack the attitude of praise. If you focus on the negative, you will get the negative which will poison your relationship. It pays to be positive. Notice the good things and affirm them.
When was the last time you look into your wife’s eyes and say “I love you” or “you are the best thing that has ever happened in my life”. Maybe, you think those words don’t matter to your wife. They are: women world is a different one. They need those words to keep going. Say it, we want to hear it over and over again.
When you speak highly of your wife, your followers are more likely to trust you. But if you complain about your wife, others will wonder whether that is the same way, you complain about them at their absence.
Compliment her look, as we know that women believe in what they hear, when a compliment is coming from their husbands, it goes a long way in bringing brightness into the home.
As a person who is primarily responsible for bringing up your kids, your wife needs all the appreciation that she can get on this job. Your words will mean alot to her and she will be glad to have you as a father.
Every woman is one way or the other needs appreciation from her husband for their little efforts in the home. Though men contribute immensely to the upkeep of the home as the breadwinner but women need a sincere praise and appreciation to keep the light on in the marriage. ###
