TODAY is “Wife Appreciation Day.” Celebrated every third Sunday of September, husbands get to think of ways how to make the day extra special for their significant other.
Here are husbands who share some of their sweet moments with their wives which, some men out there, can learn a thing or two from:
“My wife and I are complete opposites. She is always open to new experiences and trying to find the next adventure. I am more of a routine and play-it-safe kind of person. My advice is to always keep an open mind and be willing to try new experiences with your partner even if it means vying away from your comfort zone. Because of my wife, we are multiple Ironman finishers, we have summited several mountains around the world including Everest Base Camp, and most importantly, we have a beautiful baby boy. I’m looking forward to our next adventure!” — Domiku Ugarte, general manager
“Every morning, I wake up to a beautiful sight and I tell her how much I love her. My wife is my hero and she knows it. Without her, my life would probably be in ruins. In my conversations with friends, I make sure that they know how she is the star of my life. I live by the phrase, “Happy wife, happy life.” This shows her how much she means to me even if I don’t say a word.” — Gerald Yuvallos, businessman
“It’s the little things. from surprising her with flowers and taking her out on weekly dates to precious moments like traveling abroad. The main thing is to spend quality time with her. I am thankful for her for all our yesterdays, today and for all of our tomorrows. She is my strength and my balance!” — Mel Po, entrepreneur
“For me, the best thing that I do to appreciate my wife is my daily renewal of vow in prayer. Appreciation follows in many forms as a result of genuine love. If you know us, the frequent ‘I love you’s,’ ‘thank you’s,’ hugs and kisses—these are icing on the cake. The sweetest gesture of appreciation is to stand strong with her whatever happens.” — Jonathan Z. Urbano, company vice president
“Early on our Workplace Cafe journey, she helped me set up the business from accounting to human resources, and even operations. There are days when she only slept for hours for three consecutive weeks (she is a doctor by day and an accountant by night). Now that she has a somewhat challenging pregnancy, I make sure I’m present for her. She was advised to take a bed rest for a week or two. I’m here taking an indefinite leave to assist her on her needs as we try to save and nurture our upcoming baby. Sai is not just an insanely beautiful woman for me but also the most incredible life partner and loving wife. Thank you for all the patience and the love you gave me as we await our upcoming baby! I love you and together we will make big moves (pun intended) toward a brighter future!” — Kristoff Villanueva, general manager
