Is submission really a gift?
I don't think so.
I submit for purely selfish reasons. Some of them may not sound so selfish but really they are. I like it when he is happy and satisfied. I enjoy seeing his smile as he walks in the door. The soft thank you I hear when I have done something for him. When I submit to him he is more attuned to my needs and wants. It goes both ways. It really is a balancing act.
He leaves home every day to provide for our family. It is only fair that I maintain our home and try to make life as easy as possible for him. After all, who makes it possible for me to stay home with our kids? Who pays the bills? He even does most of the grocery shopping. I don't feel like his maid or his servant. I am his wife.
The more I give. The more I get in return.
Two people giving 100% to make a relationship work.
I know it is all semantics. Just a different way of saying the same thing.
