A Lucky Man

Updated on July 16, 2014

To Have Such A Good Wife

There are many things I prefer not to do

Not because I can't

Just because I don't want to

My wife gladly takes over

Cooking at home is one of them

Planning and preparing meals every day

I love to be her assistant and help out when she needs a hand

I'd rather write a story or do the laundry

She doesn't mind food shopping

I go along for the ride and read the newspaper as she shops

Paying the bills and making sure we keep all our appointments

Give me the yard and a few projects around the house

Every day is a good day when I have her by my side

We are a good team

Her strong points are my weakest

I need her as much as she needs me

Fulfilling each others needs as we carry on our day

I am not sure how other people make it work

But I wouldn't have it any other way

      A wonderful tribute to your wife. As much as my hubby and I are always on the same level and we love and care for each other I think my hubby could get along without me but I could never get along without him.

      Aww~what a sweet tribute to you and your wife making things work. As I read this, I thought of my twin sister and I. She and I make a great team too, and even though we are twins, have different strengths. For instance: I don't mind cleaning and she doesn't care for it. She calls me the domestic diva because I keep the home fires burning and things running smoothly. We are both lucky people to have someone on this earth that loves us and works with us to make life better. God Bless you and your wife my friend.
