Proverbs 31:10-30

10 Who can find a wife of noble character?
For her value is far more than rubies.
11 The heart of her husband has confidence in her,
and he has no lack of gain.
12 She brings him good and not evil
all the days of her life.
13 She obtains wool and flax,
and she is pleased to work with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She also gets up while it is still night,
and provides food for her household and a portion to her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
from her own income she plants a vineyard.
17 She begins her work vigorously,
and she strengthens her arms.
18 She knows that her merchandise is good,
and her lamp does not go out in the night.
19 Her hands take hold of the distaff,
and her hands grasp the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
and reaches out her hand to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
for all of her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes for herself coverlets;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is well-known in the city gate
when he sits with the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and honor,
and she can laugh at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and loving instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed,
her husband also praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done valiantly,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.

A Priceless Reward Being A Mom!

While everyone is celebrating Mother’s Day, we had to bring baby Z to the paediatrician early this morning due to high fever. The fever that keeps on coming back bothers me and I’ve been nursing the little one for two days now. Perhaps it’s because of the sore eyes which he also has right now. Good thing he remains energetic despite his sickness.

The little one is having roseola a mild illness cause by a virus called human herpesvirus 6 which is common to children 6 to 24 months of age. The doctor requested for a CBC test and while waiting for the CBC result the little one and his titas (aunties) went for a stroll while I stayed at the clinic utilizing the free wifi. After 30 minutes of strolling, the little one and the titas returned and while approaching me, the tot handed me a bouquet of balloons. Aww! How sweet of you little one!

That’s the first present I got this Mother’s Day and the first ever gift from my son! What a gratifying feeling seeing the little one with that cute present! Small things like this make motherhood undeniably priceless and fulfilling!

Thank you baby and Tita Aina, (my sister) I knew it was your idea, I really appreciate it! Happy Mother’s Day to all Mommies out there!
