“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her and he will have no lack in gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband praises her also.” — Proverbs 31
