Eshet Chayil Mee Yimtza (A Woman of Valor)

In Loving Memory of Barbara Drill for Mother’s Day

A woman of valor, who can find? Far beyond pearls is her value. Her husband's heart trusts in her and he shall lack no fortune. She repays his good, but never his harm, all the days of her life.

She spreads out her palm to the poor and extends her hands to the destitute. Strength and splendor are her clothing, and smilingly she awaits her last day.

She opens her mouth with Wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She anticipates the needs of her household, and the bread of idleness, she does not eat.

Her children rise and celebrate her; and her husband, he praises her: "Many daughters have attained valor, but you have surpassed them all."

False is grace, and vain is beauty; a G-d-fearing woman, she should be praised.

Give her the fruit of her hands, and she will be praised at the gates by her very own deeds.

Don’t wait to honor, thank, remember the Eshet Chayil in your life: your mother, your wife, your partner, your grandmother, your daughter, your sister, your aunt or that special friend.
