I Love My Wife

My wife has been out of town for a whole week visiting our oldest daughter in Charleston, South Carolina. On Sunday afternoon I will be picking her up at our local airport, and I’m looking forward to it.

You see, I love my wife. I miss my wife. I want her back at home.

I know men who tolerate their wives. I know a couple of men who hate their wives. I’m not like those men; I love my wife.

Why am I telling you this? Why am I writing a blog post about it? Because sometimes a person needs to know they’re loved. Sometimes a man needs to be a man and say, “This is my wife, and I love her.”

No, it’s not Valentine’s Day. No, it’s not our anniversary, or her birthday, or anything like that. I just love my wife, and I’ll be glad to have her home again.

Sir, do you love your wife? Ma’am, do you love your husband? Why not take a moment and say so? I’m afraid wedon’t say it – or show it – enough. Maybe our marriages would be a little stronger and a little sweeter if we did.

I love you, Valerie. I just wanted you to know.

    My wife is going away for a week to visit her sister. I would rather she stay home though I know she gets recharged being with her sister. I love my wife.

    • Just make sure you do the dishes before she gets back. Better yet, just live on peanut butter and crackers, peanut butter sandwiches, and frozen chicken pot pies – all produce less kitchen work.

  2. My wife travels for a work about once-per-month. I’m a wreck when she’s not around. My entire world goes on tilt. We started dating in 1978. When she’s gone, half of me goes with her. Yes, I too, love my wife.

    And to add to your comment above, eat over the sink — fewer dishes. 🙂
