57 years ago today, my beautiful mum was born.
Today she is a wonderful mother, wife, sister, mother-in-law & Nana, and still just as beautiful.
I love my mum very much.
She is my inspiration and my role model.
My rock and my support.
My best friend and my counsellor.
My source of wisdom and my well of encouragement.
She is compassionate and caring.
The most loving and generous woman you will ever meet.
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
She brings good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
She is clothed in strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household,
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her.
"Many women do nobel things, but you surpass them all"
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Proverbs 31: 10-12 & 25-31.
