A Mother – Worth Beyond Words

As I have been studying the Proverbs 31 woman verse by verse, I will admit, I cannot read that passage and not think of my mother.

Two verses that I really want to highlight on are 27-28:

“She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” (NIV)

My momma is always doing something. She is actively involved in our lives on a consistent basis (that includes even my brother and I who are away at school). With 5 kids that cannot always be easy, but she does an amazing job.

My momma has many fine qualities and is a woman of character. When I think of my mother, the first thing that comes to mind is her strength. She is always like a rock in the storm. She has a strength about her in all she does. She tells you like it is. And she’s grounded. Momma is solid and is a woman of virtue.

Something that really blesses me about my mother, is the love that she and my dad have for each other. There is no better team, and no greater gift that my siblings and I could be given than that.

Even this being said, I feel like I cannot adequately describe my mother. I can never thank her enough for everything she’s done and for everything she is.

The worth of a mother goes beyond what words can describe. 

I am beyond blessed with the mother that God has given to me. I am proud to be my mother’s daughter.


There is no way that I could ever fully express your worth and meaning to me. (I have been sitting here for hours trying to.)

Thank you for:

  •  being the strong and amazing woman of God that you are and for always giving  us your best.
  •  teaching me the importance of family and to not take anyone for granted.
  • being active and interested in our lives.
  •  loving me (especially in those early teenage years) and for always being the voice of reason, while still letting me dream.
  •  all the prayers I’ve never heard, but know that you’ve prayed for me.
  • teaching me – both in word and in action.
  • keeping my best interest at heart.
  • loving daddy the way you do.
  • bringing me up to be the woman I am today.
  • teaching me what I mother really is.
  • your gentle guidance.
  • being my friend.

Daddy only found the best, because your worth is far above what can be expressed. I love you dearly, Momma. Praying that the Lord blesses you this day and in the years to come. “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all…” (Prov. 31:29)

Happy Mother’s Day!
