A Virtuous Woman By Ema Austin O’Femi


                                                    A Virtuous Woman 



God made women and HE made them virtuous

Some remain virtuous

But some otherwise

A virtuous woman; that is what I seek

The best that can ever happen to a man is having a virtuous woman

Because nothing can be compared to a virtuous woman

A virtuous woman knows when you are sad even while beaming with smiles

A virtuous woman knows when you are lying but will believe you at that moment, she will definitely point your lies out afterward in a loving manner

A virtuous woman will apologize even when she is right for peace to reign but will make you know later that she was right and you were wrong in a loving manner.

A virtuous woman will not only give you her shoulder to cry on, she will also cry with you

A virtuous woman will always pamper and indulge you but will never over indulge you

A virtuous woman will always put your interest ahead of hers

When a virtuous woman speaks (complain) endeavour to listen

When you tell a virtuous woman you are sorry with all sincerity of heart that is the end of the matter

A virtuous woman is not perfect but will always try her best to make things right

A virtuous woman will never keep account of your misdeeds

A virtuous woman will defend you publicly but scold you privately

A virtuous woman will always control your excesses

A virtuous woman will never ask you for what you can’t afford

Even when you don’t have much a virtuous woman will understand and work with you to make it better

A virtuous woman is a confidence booster (you can enquire from those who have them)

A virtuous woman will always keep the family spiritually afloat even when you seem to pay little attention to spirituality

If and when you find one don’t let her slip away

If you do; it will be a lifetime regret

Who can deny the joy a virtuous woman brings to the family?

If you have a virtuous woman then your life is complete

A virtuous woman is priceless and they don’t come cheap

A virtuous woman; that is the kind of woman I seek

    Very lovely piece. Well written, you have truly captured wat makes a virtous woman. Some writers will claim bullshit like, a gud woman shldnt party or some oda rubbish, but thank God dis writer saw wat really makes a virtous woman is her innermost qualities. Very beautiful! D problem is men dnt really appreciate these qualities tho, cos I knw a lot of women dat have dem. Den dey go abt complaining ladies r bad. Note: almost every woman has d above qualities, all it takes 4 u to bring dem out is to really treat her wit love and she’ll definitely have ur back.
