Children grow up
Jobs come and go
Love waxes and wanes
Men don't do what they're supposed to do
Colleagues forget favors
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.
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.
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.
There are more than 20 angels in this world;
10 are peacefully sleeping on clouds,
nine are playing,
and one is reading this blog at this moment!
Thank you for being a meaningful part of my life.... yes you... you know who you are!!!
