Sisterhood is
long-time friends
remembering their history,
giving advice,
and making plans for the future.

Sisterhood is
being able to tell those women
about your friendship with someone else,
why it is special, 
and they smile.

Sisterhood is
each one of them saying,
Me too. 
I've got a friend like that.

Sisterhood is
genuine happiness for each other
about the friendships we share
and those we just witness, from afar.
As I join with others today at Soli Deo Gloria to reflect on sisterhood, I am thankful for my friends. I am thankful for girl-dinners, phone calls, texts, emails, waves, comments, connections and the way friends can be sisters

Tell me, what does sisterhood mean to you?

  1. My heart echos praise for the sisterhood with you. Yes, "I've got a friend like that."

  2. I think I've had a few moments of these with you!

    1. Yes! Yes, for sure, Marlece. Thanks for saying that :)

  3. I love this one: Sisterhood is
    genuine happiness for each other.

    So often in this world we feel like we must vie for attention and try to get as much as possible. It's easy to lament our own "without" instead of rejoicing for those that have (especially when they have what we want). But with sisterhood, one just can't help but rejoice because of love. I'll take love over competition any day.

    1. I agree. My favorite part about my recent night out with friends was that we were able to talk about our other friendships, and why they mean so much to us. It was really cool, and only deepened our feelings for one another.

  4. Three cheers for the sisterhood.
