25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31: 25-31, NIV)
From my early childhood, you have been a key and central figure in my life.
Since the day I was born, and you watch over the affairs of our household so that we can live in peace, knowing that everything is taken care of. You take care of us so well that your love warm our hearts and lives.
You have made a lot of sacrifices when we were growing up. We are who we are today because of you, mum. We are now adults who are doing well in life because of your love and sacrifices as we were growing up.
From you, mum, I learnt what it means to love. You love us so deeply and unconditionally, yet, you are firm and you discipline us when we were out of control.
You also show us by example of what it means to be a woman after God’s own heart—a woman who loves God, studies His Word diligently and pours her heart out to God in prayers.
My personality is somewhat similar to yours, and we laugh at the same thing. I enjoy hanging out with you so much. I praise the Lord for you. My mum, my rock and my best friend.
