“When I grow up I want to be like you,” said many a child to their mother. I can say that for certain, because my mom is amazing. She isn’t just my mom, she is mom to many others as well. She is also a sister to the ladies who are not her own and she is grandmother to so many children, I don’t really know how many nieces and nephews I have. My mom is a Proverbs 31 lady without even trying.
She is strong and is respected by the people.
She looks forward to the future with joy.
26 She speaks wise words
and teaches others to be kind.
27 She watches over her family
and never wastes her time.
28 Her children speak well of her.
Her husband also praises her,
29 saying, “There are many fine women,
but you are better than all of them.”
30 Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you,
but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
31 Give her the reward she has earned;
she should be praised in public for what she has done.
Since today is a day set aside to pay tribute to mothers, I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to do something a little extra for mine.
