You are my hero, my inspiration, my role model. You help me to be a better person, friend and mother. You challenge me beyond my comfort zone. You exemplify Christ and that in itself is for what I strive. I will be successful if I am half the woman you are.
"10Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. 11Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. 12She will not hinder him but help him all her life. 17She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. 18She watches for bargains; her lights burn late into the night. 20She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. 21She has no fear of winter for her household because all of them have warm clothes. 25She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs with no fear of the future. 26When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions. 27She carefully watches all that goes on in her household and does not have to bear the consequences of laziness. 28Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her. 29There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all! 30Charm is deceptive, and beauty is does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. 31Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise." Proverbs 31:10-31
