A small boy invaded the lingerie section of a large department store and shyly presented his problem to a woman clerk. “I want to buy a slip as a present for my mom,” he said. “But, I don’t know what size she wears.”
“Is she tall or short, fat or skinny?” asked the clerk.
“She’s just perfect,” beamed the small boy.
So the clerk wrapped up a size 34 for him.
Two days later, Mom came to the store by herself and changed the slip to a size 52.
A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies…
Honour her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Proverbs 31:10, 31
