Alice’s Girl Power

Do you remember the songs and cliches, girl power and bring on the girls?  The feminist movement?  The generational support, mentoring and friendship between women?  Here is a poem that my Mother passed onto me, and she was sent this from another friend of hers, who is aptly called ‘Joy’.   Enjoy 😉

Girl Power!

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 girlfriend 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….

Daughter-in-laws, sisters, sister-in-laws, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, 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.  

There are more than twenty angels in this world.  Ten are peacefully sleeping on clouds.  Nine are playing.   And one is reading this at this moment.
