Cheer Her On
You know, we all have bad days every now and then; thing happen, people can be difficult, something important breaks or it seems like everything goes wrong. The last thing any of us need on that kind of day is someone telling us about how bad their day was. What we do need is someone who can encourage us.
Everyone needs to be encouraged now and then; that includes our wives as well. They don’t just need to be encouraged on those days when everything seems to be going to pot, but other times as well. Normal days, with all their challenges can be enough to drain anyone’s energy; but even more importantly, they can drain our drive and ambition. Without something to keep us going, it’s all too easy to just give up.
Day 98 – I’m sure that what I just wrote is making you think of how much you’d like to have someone cheering you on, but that’s not what this blog is about. This blog is about you doing things for your wife, to show her that you love her.
She needs to be encouraged just as much as you do, and you’re the one to do it; there’s nobody else. Oh, the kids might chime in from time to time, but really it’s up to you. No matter what it is that your wife is doing, she needs you in her corner, cheering her on, telling her that she can do it, giving her that extra little push to overcome all obstacles. With you behind her she can do much more than without you there.
Become her fan club, she’ll appreciate it. After you’ve done that for a while, she’ll probably start doing it for you too. If not, you can always make a deal with her to be each other’s fan club. But you start it, don’t start by making the deal, start by being the real deal for your wife.
