For all the Sisters out there

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting with her Mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood.
The mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter.

"Don't forget your Sisters," she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass." They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you may have, you are still going to need Sisters.

Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. And remember that Sisters" also means your girlfriends, your daughters, and other women, relatives too.
You'll need other women. Women always do."

'What a funny piece of advice!' the young woman thought.
'Haven't I just gotten married? Haven't I just joined the couple-world?

I'm now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup. Surely my husband! and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile! But she listened to her Mother.

She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about.

As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life. After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned:

THIS SAYS IT ALL:
Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't call when they say they will.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.
BUT.........
Girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles
Are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk
It by yourself, your girlfriends will be on the valley's rim, cheering
You on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf,
And waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you.
Or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, daughter-in-laws, sisters, sisters-in-law,
Mother, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family,
Bless our life!
The world wouldn't be the same without them, and neither would I.
When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of The incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.
Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.

Empower someone cause you can not because you have too!

Have a great day!
