She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellent them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
