A great woman has a heart of appreciation. She shows appreciation for the very little things given her by her man.
It’s very true that many at times women leave their appreciation unspoken and rather show it in their gestures such as a smile. You still need to express your appreciation in words.
The gift might not be your favorite but you should still show appreciation for the thought behind the gift. You will have to wear it or put it on. It goes a long way to motivate your man to do better next time.
There is a statement that the smarter the woman gets the harder it is for her to find the right man which is not true. The smarter she gets the more difficult it is for her to settle for just anything, what is less or what won’t compliment her but rather try to shrink her to fit into someone else’s personality.
As a woman, you are your man’s glory, so continue equipping and exercising your mind and body. Read more, educate yourself to the highest level you can and let your knowledge humble you. Don’t use your achievement to bring others down including your husband. Use your knowledge to help him to become the best he can. Let your knowledge bring him blessings and not a curse.
You should always remember the wife was taken out of the husband; the head of the wife is her husband. When you agreed to marry him, you knew your place in his life. You don’t need to disrespect him because you earn more than him. Your earning, academic qualifications do not change his position as your head.
If you are not married yet or planning to do so don’t settle for a man who feels insecure about your thirst for knowledge and higher education or success, such a man is not ready for greatness. Leave such a man, rather than trying to lower yourself just to fit him. Becoming one in marriage does not mean you should become equal in everything. The hands and the head work together as a body but it doesn’t mean the hands and the head are equal or function the same.
Another thing that makes a woman a great wife is her beauty, she is beautiful in the way she treats others. She is kind and patience with strangers, her family and more especially her man. She understands that being nice towards people is what makes her beautiful. A Great wife is a beautiful woman and her beauty is not defined by her body but her heart.
A great wife expresses or finds the best way to express her feelings and emotions. She understands that keeping things to herself without talking about it, and pretending all is well only breaks the union down or she ends up venting her frustration, anger on those she loves the most. She finds the best way to voice out things that are worrying her.
A great wife makes the house a home. A place where love is served. A place where a family of love lives. Let your home be filled with love and laugher that your husband will always look forward to coming home after work. Lots of men hang out in social places, drinking spots etc after work because they have a wife who has turned the house into a place of war; where there is no peace, no food, no rest, no love. If you are going to be a great wife, your home should not run out of food. It should be welcoming, clean and peaceful.
A great wife is very particular about the health of her family. That is one reason she makes time to cook healthy meals for her family, ensures the home is clean, laundry is done, the household stays healthy. She is concerned about the physical, emotional and health needs of the family especially her man.
In conclusion, ‘An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls. The heart of her husband trusts in her [with secure confidence], And he will have no lack of gain” – Proverbs 31:10-11 (AMP).
