The Wife

“You are more powerful than you know; you are beautiful just as you are.”

So many times i called her weak for her intense emotional reactions towards different things…Told her to grow up, “be a woman”, “stop being so insecure”….I’m so hard on the wife and oftentimes disconnected, because the strength i thought she needed, i couldn’t  see that she already had it. I confused her love and weakness for me, for lack of strength as a woman…Twice i watched her give birth to nearly 4kg babies, without epidurals and minimum assistance… i watch her come home everyday to a 3yr with absolutely no chill whatsoever , after a 12hr shift, and have to stay up with her despite being tired. Even with all that she rarely complains and deals with my issues. How could i be so stupid, to see “weakness” within all of this?? Today, when i walked into  the living room and saw this i realized just how much of a fool I AM… We miss what’s there in plain sight because we become fixated on the fantasy….Sometimes you just have to remove the spec from your own eye! I thank God for my wife, for the ups and downs, and everyday lessons and the strength she has that i was blind to see. I am grateful for the revelation that today has brought.
