Characteristics Of A Great Woman
We’ve been together for over twenty five years. After dating four years we got married on August 23, 1997. It has been twenty one of the best years of my life. I’ve never experienced one day of loneliness since we said “I Do.” I’ve never regretted one of the best decisions of my life. Aimee is like fine wine that only gets better with time. The more I get to know her the more I fall in love with her. Here are seven characteristics that make her such a gift from God.
#1. She is forgiving.
I’ve given her many reasons to be cold and angry towards me. Yet, her love keeps no records of wrongs. She lavishes me with an undeserving love no matter what I say or do. She is quick to forgive and does not hold yesterdays against me.
#2. She is faithful.
She has never made divorce an option. She’s wholeheartedly committed to our relationship. She loves our four boys dearly. However, she is always there for me.
#3. She is thoughtful.
Her love is always thoughtful and unselfish. Never does she push for her own way. Always mindful of what’s going on in my life. She makes her decisions with us in mind, not just about what she wants.
#4. She is patient.
No doubt that she meant her vows to love me for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. Regardless of our life circumstances she is patient with me. Giving me room to heal, grow, process, and regroup.
#5. She is respectful.
She has never done one thing to shame me. All she does is build me up and stands by my side. Her support and respect strengthen my confidence. She believes in me to lead our home.
#6. She is constant.
She is always the same. Constantly patient, respectful, thoughtful, faithful, and forgiving. Her character remains no matter how much life changes. She can be trusted and relied upon.
#7. She is trustworthy.
Trust is a big word in this day and time. Aimee has proven her steady love and character over time. Only after going through some stuff can you really know someone. The more I know the more I trust.
I firmly believe that behind every great man is an even greater woman. What a blessing from God. She is my helpmate and soulmate. The one that God handcrafted for me. I will spend the rest of my life trying to be for her what she is to me.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
