Also, today I'd like to share this beautiful quote my sister sent to me. I think you will love it as much as I did, it is so true!!!
For all my Sisters
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

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
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.
