Subject: FW: You are special - a "sister"


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.


"Remember that 'Sisters' means ALL the women...your girlfriends, your
daughters, and all your 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:


Time passes.


Life happens.


Distance separates.


Children grow up.


Jobs come and go.


Love waxes and wanes.


Men don't always 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 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, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering
you on and 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, 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.


Pass this on to all the women who help make your life meaningful. I
just did.
