A Perpetual Kinship - My Mom


Proverbs 1:8-9
Hear, my son, your father’s instruction
And do not forsake your mother’s teaching;
Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head
And ornaments about your neck.

MY Mom and I are very different. She's extroverted, I'm introverted. She's Type B, and I'm more Type A. She's a raincoat - letting insults roll right off of her like drops of rain. I'm a sponge - soaking in every word said to me and hurt by the smallest of offenses.

Because of our many difference, I have not always listened to the wise advice given in the verse above. I haven't always thought of my mother's teachings as a "graceful wreath" or "ornaments about my neck." I haven't considered them beautiful and priceless.
