A Sister-friend…

It doesn’t matter how old you are…ten, thirty, or 49andcounting…every girl needs a sister-friend.

I was reading a book recently and a scripture jumped off the page at me. One-to-another. Wow, what a thought. That’s what a sister-friend means to me. We share the most heartfelt thoughts, we cry, we laugh, we rant and rave…and we spill our hearts one-to-another.

We all have a lot of “friends” out there. Nice gals. We chat it up in the grocery line, we say “hello” at church, we may even discuss a Bible Study. But who but a “sister-friend” do we call when our children are misbehaving and we’ve locked ourselves in the bathroom, who do we call but a “sister-friend” when we just want to cry because the scale has slipped over that dreaded number, who do we want to laugh with when we’ve seen our first grey hair?  A sister-friend.

Some of you may not have sisters by birth, and others are lucky like I am and have sisters who are their very best friends.  But no matter your circumstance, God has planted women in your life to be “sister-friends”.  I promise you.  Women who will encourage, women who will hold you up, women who will open your eyes to new ways of thinking.

I can’t tell you if that friend will be 80 or 20something, I have some of both…but I do know God has them waiting for you.  You are not alone.  Make that contact.  Invite her over for a glass of tea, take a walk together, make the phone call.  And enjoy the gift…one to another.


About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
