I did not write this but did receive it not too long ago and did a bit of editing to it, still I think it is worth sharing with my Fab 40 “sisters”
Enjoy, Carol                  

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  in her glass thoughtfully

 and turned a clear,  sober glance upon her daughter.
“Don’t forget your Sisters,” she advised, swirling the tealeaves 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, ‘Sisters’ means your girlfriends, your daughters, and other women relatives too.

 Go places with them now and then; do things with them.
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 in  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 so many years of living in this world, here is what I’ve learned:

  • Times passes..... Life happens.
  • Children grow up.... Love waxes and wanes.
  • Hearts break.....Hearts mend.
  • Careers end..... Jobs come and go.
  • Men don’t always call when they say they will,
    do what they promise or remember what they should.

             BUT...Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A Sister is never farther away than needing her can reach. When you have to walk that lonesome valley, and you have to walk it for yourself, your Sisters 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. Sometimes they hurt you and you them,
but they are always heartfelt in asking and giving forgiveness.
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 you or I.

When we began this adventure call 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.
I hope you always find the sisters you love beside you.
