Death of Salome by Kristina Gehrmann

Non Fiction
A Wife

Victoria Thomas Poller

A wife – hands you your mother’s birthday card and says, “Here Honey, sign this and say something nice to your Mom”.

A wife – juggles each day’s itinerary with a smile when you tell her, the night before: you forgot to remind her but she has a dentist appointment at 0800; has to be at another place by 1000; please don’t be late for lunch with you at 1145; school meeting at 1500; nail appointment at 1630; office party at 1830 (Yes, we do socialize at work. You never know who may need to hear the Word of God). Wasn’t it a good thing she planned that hair appointment yesterday, told Sue she’d go shopping with her next week, picked up a few groceries and this just so happened to be her day off from work? Amazing!!

A wife – reminds you that you do have children and will let you know their names and ages when you ask.

A wife – makes cookies the night before, for her sons second grade party which she is suppose to be attending; walks her preschooler to the bus; comes home and does her daily devotional as she finishes a load of clothes; picks up the mail; takes the clothes to the cleaners; picks up the preschooler from the bus stop; makes dinner; gets ready for a women’s meeting and listens attentively while her spouse tells her of his busy day.

A wife – has super sensitive hearing which lets her know when someone in the house calls out during the middle of the night; and built in ear plugs to disregard the snores.

A wife – may not be the same size as she was when you met, but she continues to be the attractive beauty you married some time ago.

A wife – tells you that she loves you and will stand by your side till earthly ‘death do you part’.

When all is said and done, A wife – takes all this is stride, loves every moment and wouldn’t trade her life with anyone.
