This morning I watched a segment on Good Morning America about Elena Delle Donne. A well-known athlete and basketball player who suddenly changed her mind about her choice of colleges and the future of her sport. During the interview, Elena explained she chose to play in Delaware to be close to her family and their home. She indicated her family is the source of her strength. She also related the story of her close relationship to her sister Lizzie who was born with cerebral palsy. Although Lizzie can not hear or speak, she is quite capable of communicating to those in her family and most especially to Elena. Lizzie does so through touch and her sense of smell. The bond between these two sisters is the deep connection of their spirits and one in which expresses the true meaning of love.
Even though these two sisters are a fine example of sisterhood, familial bonds are not the only ties which link women one to the other. We are bound by the inner knowledge which connects us all. We have the gift of feminine mystique and the intuition unique to the female. We have the essence of the truth which is unspoken and kept close to our hearts. It is the way of Avalon and the many centuries of secrets kept locked inside our maiden souls. Our spirits interconnected and ever reaching out one to the other. Searching for the sisters who share a piece of our souls. Sharing the journey and carrying one another through the hardships and celebrations of life.
This heart warming story of sisterly love, has greatly touched and inspired me. So on this beautiful Spring morning, I’m sending my love to all of my sisters. I send it to those related by blood and those who are linked through our spirits. Please know how very well you are loved. I am thankful to each of you for all you have done. You have added to my joy in the best of times and helped to lift me in the worst. I give thanks to God for your presence in my life. May the Angels keep watch over one and all.
