3 Ways to Pamper Your Wife this Weekend

Weekends are a great time for some TLC. After a long week, often spent apart, the weekends afford us down time to spend as we please with our family. Hopefully you spend most of the weekend with your wife by working together on chores and projects, having a date night, or even something as simple as being in the same room together. The weekend is also a great opportunity to pamper your wife.

Pampering your wife really isn't a new idea on this blog. We've gone over plenty of ways to treat your wife with the tenderness and affection that she so richly deserves. Yet, life can very easily squeeze the time and energy out of us, leaving the pampering on a "someday, maybe" list. Consider this a gentle reminder that showing your wife your love and affection needs to be on a priority list for today, not on a list that you'll probably never get around to. With that in mind, here are three simple things you can do to really take care of your wife this week. She's going to love this.

  1. Do the laundry
  2. Give her a back massage
  3. Get the kids ready for Mass

That's it. In total, you'll probably spend no more than an hour of your weekend (that's 1/48th or .021% of your weekend) on these three things, but the investment will pay dividends. Taking good care of your wife is as much about her as it is about you. Humbling ourselves to give up our precious time for the sake of our wives reminds us that she's a gift to us. It also reminds us of our universal call to love her as Christ loved the Church.

Take a look at your schedule this weekend, free up some time, and pamper your wife. You'll both be glad that you did.
