I had agreed to go hang out with one of my teens traveling abroad next week. It was crucial I met him today, because he may not come back to Nigeria until next summer. He's in college in the US.
It's a routine I do observe with some of my teens living abroad. As their Coach, I've got to catch up with them, hear then out and give them words of advice face to face, not just phone calls thingy.
So, as I told my hubby about my meeting today he clearly told me not to go. He needed me to stay home and spend time with him and kids. I totally get it, but If I don't get to meet with my teen I won't see him until a year's time. So, I tried explaining and explaining and he firmly but softly said no. He said he wasn't going to be happy if I left them, but it's my decision. Sincerely I was upset, but as I left him I remembered the Bible passage that says "A soft answer turneth away wrath", and I had to chill.
Husband, everything mustn't result to argument, fight or violence. Respectfully tell your wife your opinion and give her chance to decide. Most women respond very well when treated with honour and respect.
Wife: Yes, you have your career, ministry, passion, business, whatever to pursue; please put your family first before every other thing. If your home is stable, your life will be more balanced.
Happy New week and month ahead
