The Sisterhood

Sex In The City will always be one of my favorite series in the history of EVER.

“They say nothing lasts forever …dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.” – Carrie

I’ve always been a girl’s girl. Not to be confused with a girly girl, I’ve never been that. But, I’ve always had this deep rooted appreciation for girlfriends and women in general who lift each other up. We have enough tearing down in society and it makes me sick. Jealousy and greed are ugly, ugly creatures and I want no part of either of them. I am genuinely happy when my girlfriends do well, achieve, climb, and fulfill dreams. I’m equally happy to be there to help them pick up the pieces when they don’t. Thats what a sisterhood is. It’s unconditional.

“We made a deal ages ago… men, babies, it doesn’t matter. We’re soulmates.” – Samantha

You don’t have to agree with someone all the time to love them all the time. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not in the sisterhood. Don’t even try it! THEY WON’T LET YOU! I’ve been fortunate enough to build myself quite a network of very good friends, some as individuals and some as groups. They come in all shapes and sizes, professions and religions, and I cherish the relationships we have together. All very different, and all very much the same if that makes any sense.

It took me a long time to realize that some friends come for a season, and some for a lifetime. God is funny that way. He will provide what you need, when you need it, if you let him. When I realized that the seasonal relationships were just part of the lifetime it was easier for me. Through all the seasons though, I’ve always had my person.

originalMy person showed up in the 7th grade at Buffalo Middle School on the very first day. My person has been a blessing to my life in more ways than I could ever put down on paper. My person takes sisterhood to a whole new level. Every emotion, every life event, every boring Tuesday, everything, we have been through it all. Now we are going through it all over again with our children.

And so it goes…..the cycle of life. It’s amazing really, what a blessing sisterhood is. They get you, I mean really get you, and even when everything isn’t ok, it is, or it will be, and they will be there cheering you on, picking you up, wiping your snot, whatever it takes to pull you through.

  1. Love, Love this. I LOVE having girlfriends. Just the right ones! Like you said the sisterhood needs more building up and less putting down. I love finding like minded women who appreciate me for who I am and let me be me and I in return offer unconditional love, loyalty, and support. For sure we are best friends 🙂
