I received this as a chain e-mail just now and came to think of us EDS friends... and felt the need to post it. I've made the text of most importance bold...

Here goes ladies Very Happy


"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 got 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 Mum really knew what she was talking about. As
time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman,
Sisters are the main stays 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 favours. 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 and sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other. Every day, we need each other still.

Pass this on to all the women who help make your life meaningful. I just did. Short and very sweet:
There are more than twenty angels in this world.

Ten are peacefully sleeping on clouds. Nine are playing. And one is reading her email (a thread on the EDS Forum) at this moment. Send this message to ten of
your friends including me. If you get 5 replies, someone you love will surprise you.

Happy days!
Don't break this; it's working!"

I agree with Tam...this piece really does ring true for me as well! Thanks so much for posting it, Ruth...

I've always said we girls need to stick together to protect the sisterhood - its one of my mantras. Its a club that you are automatically enrolled in the day you're born and the doctor says "Congratulations - its a girl!" There are very few things that can get a girl thrown out of the sisterhood, but they do happen from time to time. Also, certain men can be made honorary members of the sisterhood - they are few and far between, but the ones who seem to understand women (or try to!) and truly respect them are worthy of being included in the fold.

MermaidGirl, that's very true. I've been very fortunate to have had wonderful men like that in my life. Until I was in my late 20's my best friends were usually guys. The difference though, is that as years pass, men tend to drift out of our lives more easily. With my girlfriends, the years don't seem to matter; it doesn't matter if our lives have gone in different directions, they are always there.
