When a Man Loves a Woman

Gregory Oswald Griffin Sr.

Few things in life can compete with the love a man has for his special woman. When he truly loves her he cant keep his mind on anything else but her. The singer Michael Bolton tells us that hed trade the world for the good thing he has found. If she is bad, he cant see it. She can do no wrong. Hed turn his back on his best friend if he puts her down.

Comedian Chris Rock in one of his routines gives a funny account on marriage. He says that a man needs time to get himself together before he goes home to his wife. He says that the wife starts complaining and dumping on her husband as soon as he walks through the door. Chris shouts, LET ME GET MY OTHER FOOT IN THE DOOR! The audience dies with laughter.

The truth is if a man truly loves his wife, he wont mind the dumping. He will patiently listen to her. As the song goes: He would spend his very last dime trying to hold on to what he needs. Hed give up his comforts and sleep out in the rain if she said thats the way it ought to be.

We all have heard the joke that God made a wonderful thing when he made a woman, then ruined the whole thing when he put a tongue in her head. The truth is men that love their women dont mind the excessive talking. They will simply listen and respond when appropriate. Yes dear! No dear! Is there anything else dear?

If she plays him for a fool hes the last to know. Loving eyes can never see. The best thing that a man can do for his children is to love their mother. It is a known fact that children that grow up in homes where the father loved their mother grow up to be more successful than children who grew up in homes without loving parents.

A man who degrades his wife in front of the children is wrong. He takes something away from her ability to mother. It is very important that children observe both parents treating each other with respect, dignity and love. I remember growing up in a loving home.

When I was a child my father always referred to my mother as HONEY. It was Honey this and Honey that! He worshiped the ground she walked on then and he worships it now. Honey could do no wrong!

Too many of the problems that we see our children experiencing today are the direct result of being raised in families where the parents dont love one another. How often do you tell your wife that she is the love of your life? How often do you take her by the hand and tell her how much she means to you? When was the last time you served her breakfast in bed? When was the last time you ran her bath? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU TOUCHED THE WOMAN THAT YOU LOVE?

Women want men to listen. They want to know that you care about them. If you love her you will listen to her. When a man loves a woman he compliments her on a regular basis. If she gains weight he will see it as a positive. Its just more of you to love baby!

It is an exasperating and challenging joy to be in love with a woman! The joy is enhanced when you know what she wants. Love is so beautiful.

When a man loves a woman he loves the way her head always find the perfect spot on his shoulder. He admires the way she looks when she sleeps. He loves how adorable she looks when she argues with him.

Yes when a man loves a woman I know exactly how he feels, because baby, baby, baby I am a man and I loooove my woman!
