Sisterhood

“Sisterhood” women whose hearts and souls are joined together by laughter and tears shared through the glorious journey of life.”

Door County, Wisconsin – what a magnificent setting for six members of our group called Sister’s In Spirit to share four uninterrupted days together in “the glorious journey of life!”  A friendship spanning over 40+ years is the glue that holds the group together.  Two of our members experiencing health issues were unable to be a part of this summer adventure this time around.  But, they are not forgotten and certainly loved.

As a part of this group, I have discovered that being connected by blood is not necessarily the only requirement for being regarded as sisters.  In my experience, this fragile connection can also be made through a number of different effects that this group shares: 

  • a dedication to and love of helping children to learn.  In our case, the teaching profession.
  • like-mindedness in personal work ethic and a desire to make a difference.
  • a sharing of strong family ties.
  • a sharing of a belief system in the existence of a higher power.
  • a sharing of interests, causes and pastimes.
  • an attitude of care and concern for those around us and for each other.
  • a deep and abiding love for each sister that is unconditional.

Our hearts and souls in Sisters In Spirit are joined through laughter and tears experienced together as the years have passed.  Whether we are reminiscing, eating, sightseeing, drinking, shopping, laughing, telling stories, looking for bathrooms, walking, telling jokes, watching the rain, seeing a play, tasting wine, did I say eating?!?!?!, or talking, talking, talking, we are making memories and building ties that will last a lifetime and beyond.  God bless my Sisters In Spirit!
