Sisters
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 gotten 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 Mom really knew what she was talking about.

As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays 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 favors. 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 or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other. Every day, we need each other still.

一位年輕的太太坐在沙發上 在潮溼燜熱天 喝著冰茶 和探望著她的媽媽
ㄧ樣聊著生活 婚姻 還有生活的負擔 與成人世界裡的道德責任
........... 細節我不翻了 ......

*不要忘記妳的姊妹們*媽媽的忠告
在妳越來越老 她們將會更重要
不管妳有多愛妳老公 不管妳多愛妳的小孩如果妳有的話 妳還是需要姊妹們

記得跟她們去某些地方 或是做些事
記得這些姊妹們是指 全部的女人 妳的女性朋友 妳的女兒 和其他任何女性的親戚
妳將會需要其他的女人 女人總是這麼做的

於是這女兒保持著與她的姊妹們連絡和每一年交很多女性朋友
一年復一年 她漸漸了解到 ...... 媽媽說的話

這樣生活了過五十年的她 她學到

時間的流逝
生命的來來去去
距離的分隔
小孩成長
工作不斷變化
感情的圓滿與衰退
男人不做他們應該做的事
心碎
父母過世
同事忘了支持妳
工作到了盡頭

但是
姊妹還是在這
不管之間多久的時間和多遙遠
女性朋友永遠不會離妳太遠 需要她時 伸手及到

******************

所以 當妳看到慾望城市
就會想哭 ......

希望這一篇 不要造成女性情侶的扭曲
就很單純的要好的女性朋友
