To My Sisters of the Soul...

[and to the few, oh so very few, brothers of the soul I have found, too]

Many of you I have never met in person,
Many of you I have never even heard your voice,
Many of you who don't know me from Eve have given me your unconditional support, friendship and even love.
All of you, you are my sisters of the soul.

Here's to you all.
Thanks for making this crazy roller coaster ride from hell a little easier to bear..


Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.

BUT.........
Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girl friend 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, the women in your life 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, granddaughters,
daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers,
Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither would I.
When we began this adventure called womanhood
[and as an extension.. motherhood],
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.
