To the Proverbs 31 Mom, yes you:

Shhhh! Let’s keep it a secret.
People think that you are a Proverbs 31 mother.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Super Mom? Wonder Woman? Or Proverbs 31?

You are busy working your magic.
As wife and mom, you tend to your responsibilities.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Let the praises flow freely.
Let the generosity of spirit pervade your home.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Clean a little here and there.
Apologize, forgive, and gently let go, Mothers.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Cook a little here and there.
Then indulge with sweet thoughts inside your head.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Get up, get dressed in your Sunday best.
Then take it off and put on your Monday best.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

Support a little here, listen a little there.
Understand, empathize, cry, and laugh.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

No one knows the intricacies of your role,
except the God with whom you dare to share.
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

“Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.”
(Smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!)

“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

On this special day to honor you,
Neither the spouse nor kids want to make you sad.
So, smile, smile, wink, wink.
Let’s not let them in on the stink!

From one Proverbs 31 woman to the next, pass it on.
