To Protect His Heart

My wife was once asked in front of a group of 50 or 60 men, “What do you believe is your most important job as a wife? Some of the men looked at me to see if I knew what her answer would be. I just shrugged, as I had no idea.

She replied, “To protect his heart.”

She added, “It’s my most important job to never break his heart.”

I cherish that woman.

  1. I just sat here in silence for a very long while as the power and depth of those words soaked into my heart. Dear Russ, please send my warmest greetings to your dear wife from me. It sobered and touched me deeply her one simple statement. What a beautiful soul. I am immeasurably blessed to know such good people like yourselves. Sharon

    Sir, with a woman like that, it’s no wonder you’ve been married for 30 years! I have been with my significant other for almost ten years and I have never said anything half this lovely! 🙂
