Thank you from this foster child who had a wonderful Foster Mother, Mrs. Sylvia R. Jones, rejoice in peace Fatty. Her nickname was Fatty.

This day is for you. To smile and rejoice. To celebrate all that you are in your childrens lives. To those who's children are still home. Your job is still being done. Keep doing it. Keep raising. Keep setting the example. They are watching every move you make and don't make. They will do more of what you show them more than what you say to them, keep speaking life and encouragement into your children.

To all of the Mothers whos children are raised and grown and on thier own. You made it. But its not over. Your head work and sacrafice piad off and you have done good. Be prepred to intrsuct them in their adulthood. Listen to them with your heart and your ears. Be slow to speak but quick to listen. Take the ques from them. They will let you know what they need. Be ready.

The following chapter is referencing a good wife but t know this also applies to good mothers because we do have these same characteristics and responsibilities as a Mother and Single Fathers raising their children. Be reminded always of your value and worth.

Proverbs 31
The Sayings of King Lemuel
31 The sayings of King Lemuel contain this message,[a]which his mother taught him.
O my son, O son of my womb,
    O son of my vows,
do not waste your strength on women,
    on those who ruin kings.
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, to guzzle wine.
    Rulers should not crave alcohol.
For if they drink, they may forget the law
    and not give justice to the oppressed.
Alcohol is for the dying,
    and wine for those in bitter distress.
Let them drink to forget their poverty
    and remember their troubles no more.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves;
    ensure justice for those being crushed.
Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless,
    and see that they get justice.

A Wife of Noble Character

10 [b]Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
    She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
    and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
    and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
    with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
    a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
    her lamp burns late into the night.
19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
    her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
    and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
    for everyone has warm[c] clothes.
22 She makes her own bedspreads.
    She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
    where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
    and sashes to sell to the merchants.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
    and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
    and suffers nothing from laziness.
28 Her children stand and bless her.
    Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
    but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
    but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
    Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

Happy Mothers Day and Lord Bless You always.,
