SISTERHOOD OF TRAVELING BUTTERFLIES

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.
Seeking JOY on the Journey,

    praise God I still have my 1,
    friend even if we,
    don't get to see each other much, she has to travel, a lot, but when we do see each other we just take off where we left off. its good to know I will have another PERSON
    who loves the Lord as I do.
