"Paragraph" - Women: Look, Listen and Take Heed.
Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready
on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking
about him and are concerned about his needs.
Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially
his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.
Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives.
Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just
been with a lot of work weary people.
Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a
lift and one of your duties is to provide it. Clear away the clutter. Make one last
trip through the main part of the house just before
your husband arrives. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc. and then run a dust
cloth over the tables.
Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to
unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and
it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you
with immense personal satisfaction.
Prepare the children, take a few minutes to wash their hands and faces (if they
are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little
treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.
Minimise all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise from the washer,
dryer, and vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him.
Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to see him. Listen
to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his
arrival is not the time. Let him talk first - REMEMBER, HIS TOPICS OF CONVERSATION
ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOURS.
Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner
or other places of entertainment without you. Instead try to understand his world
of strain and pressure, and his very real need to be at home and relax.
Your goal. Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility
where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit. Don't greet him with complaints
and problems. Don't complain if he's late for dinner or even if he stays out all
night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.
Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie
down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow
and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low soothing and pleasant voice. Don't
ask him questions about his actions or question his judgement or integrity.
Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will
with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
A good wife always knows her place.
