It's Love-Your-Wife Day
Hi, everyone. Did you know that today is Love-Your-Wife Day? I didn't either. I just made it up.
What a better day than today to tell your wife, guys, how much you love and appreciate her! I know, I know. You tell her everyday already, from the time you open your eyes together in bed to the time you kiss each other goodnight. And all the times in-between during the day, when you just grab her and say, "Sweetie, you are the best wife a man could have. I don't know what I'd do without you." Isn't that something you tell her, say, 12 to 13 times a day?
Well, I just decided that today will be a special day for my wife to read my blog. Sorry if I'm exposing this surprise to the rest of the bloggerdom. But I just have to.
Since I broke the vertebra in my back a couple of weeks ago (thank you all, btw, for your prayers!), I have had to do something very humbling--watch Adéye load the car with all seven children, clean the house by herself, and carry our HEAVY six-year-old up three flights of stairs every night because he falls asleep on the first floor.
I have had to listen to countless "It's alright, honey, I'll do it"s.
And countless "You stay home and rest"s.
But what I also hear countlessly is this, from other people:
"I don't know how your wife does it." (Scratching their heads.)
"Adéye, God has used your blog to change our lives!"
"She's a hottie."
She is. And for that, I'm honoring you today, sweetheart, for all that you do and all that you are.
Happy Love-Your-Wife Day!
