She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed… (Proverbs 31:25-28)
In this photo from the 1950s, a blessed Israeli mother tends to children in the field during the harvest. Happy Mother’s Day, and Shabbat shalom, friends.
