"Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 'Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.' Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates." proverbs 31.28-31esv
in the words of kanye west... "Hey Mama! I wanna scream so loud for you, cuz I'm so proud of you!"
by the grace of god, mama raised four children, often dealing with most of our greatest foolishness! ( we chillaxed when pops was home...fear factor) man, we flat wore this poor woman out...almost! what a fighter she is! she survived us all! i find it difficult to get one little baby ready and to church or anywhere else on time...mama did it with seeming ease. sadly i don't think i could articulate my gratitude for this friend and hero even IF i had time...i love you, mama!! thanks for loving me through it ALL.
p.s...and i forgive you for letting me wear this hideous outfit. ouch.
