Today was a great day (happy birthday mommy!)

Whoop, boy did we get a lot done today before it rained!!!
Let's see here; we have the garden all planted, watermelon, muskmelon, zucchini, yellow squash, more green beans and green peppers. The corn, tomatoes and first batch of green beans coming up.
We (finally) moved the meat birds out; we also moved the fancy chicks out (both in there own 'tractor').
We also, finally got the ducklings out of the house and into the skate barn, where the meat and egg chicks were.
Mommy and I went on another bike ride today (exercise, but still able to talk, speed), we rode for a little over an hour-I had a lot of fun.
Speaking of my mommy, today is her birthday!
My mommy, is my best friend. She's always been there for me, encouraging me, helping me.
Since Christmas break third grade, she has home schooled my four siblings and me.
She's a teacher, a wife, a mom, a nurse, a maid, a cook, a chauffeur, a confidant, and best of all, a best friend.
My mommy, is my role model. She's the one that keeps me on the path of my dreams, not the worlds. She encourages me to follow my dreams. She's thrilled that my dream is to be a stay at home mom, and that I didn't cave in to the pressure of the world and go to college. She supports all of our dreams!
She always puts her family first- almost to a fault! I love my mom so much!
10A wife of noble character who can find?
   She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
   and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
   all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
   and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
   bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
   she provides food for her family
   and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
   out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
   her arms are strong for her tasks.

18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
   and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
   and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
   and extends her hands to the needy.

21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
   for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
   she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
   where he takes his seat among 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 dignity;
   she can laugh at the days to come.

26 She speaks with wisdom,
   and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She watches over the affairs of her household
   and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
   her husband also, and he praises her:

29 “Many women do noble things,
   but you surpass them all.”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
   but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
   and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. 
Psalms 31:10-31
