Wives, words your husband would love to hear
SEE ALSO :Man strangles pregnant wifeSisters, here are some words that brothers would love to hear when it’s one of those days ... “Babe, I’ve got this” Say these magic words when a brother is “temporarily out of cash”, and you’ll have removed a humongous weight off his shoulder. Because of pride, many men will not ask their wives for money. They will just suck it up, or accumulate more loans from online loan platforms. Good wives have hunches. They know when their husbands are broke. If the bills are high and the money is low, pick an item – like, say, refilling the gas – and tell him, “I got this” or, “it’s sorted”. If he’s the appreciative type, he’ll compose a ditty in your honour.

It’s hard to explain to someone who does not have a dream how it feels to pursue a dream. And, most times, a dream is about trial and error. Or trial and prayer. Some wives will not understand why one keeps going after a dream that has failed multiple times. I’d love to hear what the wife of Thomas Edison made of his scores of his failed attempts at inventing the light bulb. Pursuing a dream is usually a lonely affair. Having a wife who gets it and keeps assuring you that they believe in you will make the ride less bumpy. Little things matter a lot. If, for instance, he’s pulling an all-nighter, drag yourself out of bed in the dead of the night and whip him up a mug of hot chocolate.
SEE ALSO :When love and finances tangle“Love, you’re good people” We may try to act all manly, but, inwardly we have doubts about our parenting abilities. When our daughter was around two, she did something wrong and I spanked her. Seconds after I spanked her, I felt extremely guilty about it. It didn’t help matters when Tenderoni got on my case, arguing that Pudd’ng was too little to be spanked. I felt like a bad dad. Like an abusive father. At times I have the “I’m-a-bad-dad” feeling when I can’t provide some items for my daughter. The assurance that I’m good people and I’m doing good, regardless, makes us to do better.
