    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 life worthwhile!'

    But she listened to her Mother. She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life.

    After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned:

    THIS SAYS IT ALL:

    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 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 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!
    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.

    What a piece of advice, thanx for sharing with us. Really 100% true. We're also 3 sisters no brother & i know how much they meant to me. Whenever i have any problem, first thing come to my mind talk to my elder sis, instead of my mom. She is like my mother & always give my good piece of advice, support me, encourage me etc. & my younger sis is like my best friend i share all my things with her.

    Sisters are a one of the best gift given by God to us:)

    hey ragini

    Very very true, sisters are really important, however far you are you really have something to share with her, cos we go way back, you have been born in front of her, she has seen you growing, she understands your nature, you behavior... and vice versa you have seen heer doing things and wanted do those, they inspire you they guide you, in every aspect of life, i would say...

    take care

    Dear Ragini

    Well said. No matter how your day was or how your life was a heartfelt conversation with your sister or a girlfriend will put your mind at ease.
    Nice writeup.

    Regards,
    Jothi.

    Thanks Cheer, Abha & Jothi, glad you'll liked it.

    Having an elder sister & few close girlfriends who've made an effort to keep in touch despite distances & hectic lives, i know what a blessing it is to have them in my life.
    No wonder this forward struck a chord & i wanted to share it with you all out here.

    Cheers!
    Ragini.
