Tonight, i went to a secret sister get-together. It was very nice. About 6 weeks ago…a group of ladies from our group of WOW (women of worship) exchanged names to pray for; and, surprise each other with small gifts or cards. The big reveal was this evening.
The really special part of this evening was that the ages ranged from like 13 years of age to the upper 70’s. It was sweet. My secret sister made me cry when she thanked me for her gift. It was a vase full of a dozen roses…i knew that she liked roses.
What i did NOT know, was that she has never been given roses before in her life. She is somewhere in the vacinity of age 50. Now, i do not know about you…but that made me both happy and sad. Sad that noone had ever given her roses (her fav) and happy that i was the one to give it to her. It filled me with joy that i gave her something that meant so very much to her.
Sisters are special whether your sister is a biological one, adopted one, a sister who is friend- like in a truly close bond kind of way, or a sister from marriage. It really doesn’t matter….because a sister is someone who shares your hopes, your sorrows, your dreams and your values. Sisters are a blessing!
