SISTERS... sorry had to share this one... long.. grab a twinkie and milk

My Best friend from the 4th grade sent me this today...
Her timming is always perfect

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:

THIS SAYS IT ALL:

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, 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.
