even though I disagree that other women "do it all" I did like the reminders in this email of the importance in remembering that God doesn't leave us isolated. He gives us people who can share our joys and sorrows. But in the end... HE is the one who does it all. For all the people out there who have prayed with me, rejoiced with me, who have made me feel welcome. To you I want to say THANK YOU. :)



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 girlfriend is never farther away than needing her. 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. 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.
