SISTERHOOD OF TRAVELING BUTTERFLIES
Children grow up
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don’t do what they’re supposed to do.
Colleagues forget favors.
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.
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.
We need each other still.
Pass this on
To all the women who help make your life meaningful.
I just did.
Seeking JOY on the Journey,
