This is my dear friend Brigette. She is expecting her 5th child any day...in fact if she doesn't go into labor before, she will be induced on Tuesday. She is having a 3rd daughter...
I have known Brigette for about a year and a half. She is always an encouragement to me! Not just when she verbally encourages me, but just in how she mothers her precious children.
They are an active bunch of kids, ages 6, 4 1/2, 2 1/2, and 16 months. She always is helping them, encouraging them, guiding them. She gives up time to visit and talk in order to help her kids to have fun. That has been a real lesson to me.
Sometimes she doesn't get the respect she deserves from others, either family, friends or stranger, because she has decided to trust God in the area of having children.
So today, on the eve of the birth of her new daughter, I want to say that I love you Brigette and I respect you. Both as a wife and a mother. Your children will one day rise up and bless you. But until they day that they do, let me stand in their place.
"Many Daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all." Proverbs 31:29
