A Good Wife: A Short poem dedicated to my wife

A good wife supports her husband

A good wife encourages her husband

A good wife is her husband’s greatest critic

A good wife helps her husband to fulfil his vision in life

A good wife edits and proof reads her husband’s books and writings

A good wife prays for her husband

A good wife alerts her husband with her God given intuition

A good wife plans good holidays for rest

A good wife allows her husband to buy collectable items not toys!

A good wife is proud of her husband and brags about him

A good wife allows her husband to grow in his giftings

A good wife thinks of what the husband needs even when he hasn’t thought about it yet

Lucy is a good wife because she does all of the above
