Art Sisters

I was fortunate to be able to attend the Silver Bella art retreat in Omaha last weekend with 150 other women.
This was the first time I have ever attended this sort of event. Besides the art projects undertaken, techniques and methods learned, creative swaps exchanged and vintage and handmade creations purchased at the Bella Market...I brought home something else...
something of greater value.

That something was a crystal clear realization that women need other women. 

As women we share common life experiences, emotions and needs that only other women can truly understand. We need to be kind and generous to one another.
We need to support one another.

I am not sure why it took me until now to focus and think about this fact but I intend to nourish my relationships with other women as I continue on my life's journey. Cherish your sisters and your girlfriends and reach out to other women in your community and beyond. We need each other.

Perhaps you already knew that!

I couldn't agree with you more - there is something magical in our relationships with other women.

Yes- we get so busy with life we forget to take time to work on them! There are some amazing women in my life that I want them to know how much I love them- I better get to telling them

It took me way too long to figure that out, but i did, just a few years ago. and my life is so much richer because of it.
