‘Fruitful pride’ is the pride that is not harmful but beneficial. Here it delivers a sense of fulfilment of the middle-aged woman who has reared her sons with care and maintained the household successfully for a long time now. The woman takes pride in her achievements in the family and that helps her do the same otherwise-monotonous household chores happily on a regular basis.
