proverbs 31:25


My mom is the strongest woman that I know, so naturally this verse reminds me of her. Without going into tons of personal details, I'll just tell you this: She raised my brother and I as a young single mother, with not much money and not many people to help. Yet I can't ever remember a time when my brother and I went without anything we needed. I'm 25 and married and still don't think I could handle children right now. I don't know how she did it.

I've sat here and read it over and over to let it really sink in. It's so powerful isn't it?

I have a tremendous amount of respect for mothers and a big soft spot for single mothers. My brother and I didn't always make it easy for my mom and even still, she always always expressed her love for us. For that, I will always be grateful. I hope that one day I have at least half of the strength that she does.



Happy Mother's Day.
