"There is one thing I have learned since becoming a mother, the power of sisterhood. Whether it is a relative or a close friend, these women are my peeps. What I love about them is that not all are mamas. I have single friends, older friends with no children, and even young adults. Sisterhood is a bond that goes beyond being family. It connects women to each other and in its most magical manifestations, allows each woman in the sisterhood to thrive in ways she could never do on her own.
Throughout the window of time before, during, and after a woman gives birth, she is more open, more vulnerable, and more sensitive. Everything around her will impact her more intensely–words, images, behaviour–whether positive or negative. Imagine if every woman was surrounded by love, positivity, and support throughout her entire birthing time–before, during, and after. A supported mother has the strength and ability to care for her child with peace and love. And a child who is cradled in peace and love will have an increased strength and ability to grow into an adult who treats others with greater peace and love.
A Sisterhood provides a safe space for the truest self to emerge. It is a place where tears are caught not judged, where you are held not ridiculed, and where it’s okay to not be okay. Parenting is hard.
These friendships with these women are so important to me. It is what bounds us, strengthens us, and empowers us. Whether these friendships are short-term or forever, I cherish them. I try and make the most of it. When these experiences and memories randomly, and spontaneously cross my mind, I smile. I laugh. I shed a tear. I reminisce.
I am so grateful, and so blessed to be taking part in life with them. In turn, I can only aspire that I am half the friend they are to me. Never be afraid to reach out, make a call, send a text or knock on their door. Sisterhood is about being deliberate, willful and making an effort. Because, the journey in life can get rough, and sometimes lonely and life is too short to experience that.
Here’s to my sisterhood, my peeps, may we embrace the sisterhood we share and rise into greatness together."
