Do you want a Wife & a Woman, or just a Wife?

There was a colleague of mine who said women are to make decisions such as picking out drapes. In which I completely disagreed with. Of course there was more to the conversation, but that was one of the statements he made. I felt a little belittled as woman. It immediately bought me back to a story that my Dad told me a couple months ago. He told me that on our move to Ocala from West palm, he and my mother packed up the tuck with our belongings and was ready to hit the road. He expressed to me how he was a bit nervous to drive this incredibly large truck for so long. He said my Mom just hopped in the driver’s seat and began driving. As they were driving he said he felt a little embarrassed and told her to pull over and he drove the truck successfully to Ocala. My Mother alone has shown me how to be more than just picking out drapes. Why not have a woman who is going to challenge and push you to be better? However, if you desire the “Pleasantville” lifestyle by all means do so. I’m not sure if you watched the movie, but at the sight of color (non-traditional ways) the black and white way of life was no longer desirous. Who wants a wife who is soley going to ask you what’s for dinner when you come home, pick out drapes for your home, and tell you what tie to wear? Don’t get me wrong, I look forward to cooking, putting together amazing ensembles for my husband and decorating our house. However, I will mow the lawn sometimes, check his oil, or change a light bulb, simply because I seen my Mother do it. Do not set limits on a woman’s role because we are limitless. Believe it or not, women are the glue that holds our families together. She’s the nurturer. Allow her to maximize her womanhood. An although my Dad and brothers will never let me change my tire, wash my car, or check my oil when they’re around, they taught me how to do it when they’re not around.
