    I am grateful for my sisters, it’s not blood that makes us sisters it’s our bond. These women keep showing up for me and I do my best to be the best friend for my sisters as well💓

  4. Thanks you for sharing this amazing story, it is so important for us as women to have a sisterhood such as this, I too have a group of phenomenal women who are just like yours, they are and have been all that you mentioned and more. We are that one to another and I pray that every woman has the opportunity to experience this same type of Sisterhood in their lifetime. Again, I thank you for sharing

Thank you to my sisters…Cynthia my biological sissy, Lisa, my sister/cousin, Shelvy, who is ALWAYS here for me, Joyce, whom God sent back after 50 years, Bettye, Lillian, Mary, Rhonda, Barbara, Cordelia..I love you guys. What would I do without you? Thank you Heavenly Father for these blessings. These 73 years have been filled with so much joy, so much pain. My sisters have been here to share it all. God bless them.

  6. Everything you said is true? Sustaining relationships requires effort for all involved and I’m glad you and Marla put in the work.

  7. This is a wonderful story. I will share this with a few friends that I feel are my sisters. One, in particular, is my childhood friend, Elaine. She’s always been there for me through the good times and the bad. I can talk to her about anything, and she always has an encouraging word. I think this site is so needed for us sisters! Thank you!

  8. Awww, so heartfelt. Makes me think of my Babes, Tamera,, my Sister in Christ. We are carbon copies of each other. I met her several years ago at church. We automatically connected, and gained an unbreakable bond. We laugh, dance, cry and pray together. She’s my bestie, yet in 2020, I moved to the West Coast. She’s in Maryland, and baby we don’t miss a beat. She’s my Yen, and gets me through here all alone. Yay, Sister’s rock, regardless of home you are united. I loved her down

  9. This was a wonderful article that reminded me how grateful I am to have my sister friends . Last Sunday my sister friends and I celebrated my great accomplishment of completing my MBA degree from LSUS. The ferocious conversations and love we share at the brunch table for each other was evident. I felt proud and I felt loved. I need my sister friends and you are correct 100% that God did not create us to be by ourselves. So I treasure my sister friends deeply . Thank you for sharing Queen.
