We Are Sisters


“A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” – Isadora James

Lately, I’ve been very appreciative of the presence of strong, supportive women in my life.  While I have loads of love for my guy friends, there is nothing quite like enjoying the company of my sisters – one biological and the countless others I have encountered during my lifetime.  There is a comfort and power in women coming together to encourage, uplift and edify each other.  I started a group called ‘Pasta & Positivity’ in 2009 to do just that on a monthly basis.  I wrote the piece below and handed it out to all in attendance, to say that no matter where we come from, we ARE all sisters.  Take a moment today and acknowledge the women who have made a difference in your life through their support, presence, kindess, words, deeds, or examples they’ve set for you.  Love, Your Sister, Ejay

We are Sisters

We are sisters; more connected by our similarities than separated by our perceived differences.

We have all loved a child, whether we birthed him or not.

We have all cried from laughing & laughed to keep tears at bay.

We have all looked at ourselves and felt we were ‘not _____ enough’, when in fact; we are all walking, breathing Perfection.

That makes us sisters.

We have all been peacemakers and hell raisers.

We have all kept relationships on life support when we should have long ago pulled the plug.

We have all fallen short of our immense potential at one time or another.

That makes us sisters.

We have voiced our opinions.

We have kept our mouths shut.

We have been brave.

We have been afraid.

We have made wise choices and we have made unwise ones.

That makes us sisters.

I may not always agree with you or travel your path with you, but I will always love you.

Because we are Sisters.
