I was so glued to the TV watching the live coverage of tennis Australian Open the other day,( I Love Tennis) and was oblivious of my lovely wife coming home from work, when i took notice of her she was already in the kitchen preparing dinner for the family and i felt bad.
I have to say it once again, it is never easy being a working moms, they have more worries then men do.They have to worry about the children home works, the house chores, have to be mindful of the husband's mood swing, the entire family well being and the least they could be worrying about is their own self.
Taking my lovely wife for an example, from 9 to 5, she is out there working, facing the customers, (some reasonable some otherwise), she has to make sure her subordinates perform well too and the most tiring of all is that is she always being inundated with emails she has to reply.
As soon as she comes back, she heads straight to the kitchen with part of her working attire still on, preparing dinner,after which assuming her role as a home tutor, teaching the children,when finished she will be damned tired already...........
Just imagine this, besides those that i have mentioned and if she still has to do chores like cleaning up, washing, ironing the clothes and others, just think for a while how very physical draining it could be to her, right?
I know many of my lady friends who rarely complain about how tired they are to their husband being a working mom,may be to them they rather take it upon themselves than to vend it a little here and there to their spouse lest provoke their woes.
When i saw my wife last night,doing her stuff, i knew how wonderful she was even she didn't say it. I felt bad the other night, i was glued to the TV watching the live coverage of tennis Australian Open and guess what she knew that i loved tennis, she didn't even bother me.
I might not be doing enough by cleaning up the house, washing and ironing the clothes, i must also make her feel at ease emotionally and mentally.
This post is intended to remind us and myself (husband) that we should appreciate our the other halves (wife) all the times, they might not be telling us that they are tired, we should just feel it.Period
P/S : She's not saying it, does not mean she's not feeling it
