Understand your role. Embrace who you should be. Be happy about it.
Being a wife isn't 50/50.
You give half. I'll give half.
It is giving 100%....... 24/7.
You give your all.
All the time.
Does your home have a peaceful existence? Domestic order?
Turmoil? Trouble in too many places?
Do you spend a lot of your time putting out of fires?
Are the sprinkles all gone out of your days?

I know. I know. I didn't list EVerYthINg we are supposed to be.
If we perfect these few, it will take us all until the cows come home anyway.
