The Ra Ra Sisterhood

Do you remember the movie " The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?" The movie is about friends who share a pair of pants. It is one of those feel good movies that just makes a person smile. Earlier today, on one of my blogging FB groups, a friend shared about an accomplishment on her blog and another friend simply commented "Ra Ra Sisterhood." And immediately a smile came upon my face. I love that term because that is exactly how I feel about this group of ladies in my life.

I never knew social media could be such a positive encouraging experience. (Don't get me wrong we have to be careful but social media can and is a positive influence in my life!) I never realized how many friends I could meet on social media. Since beginning and finishing the Write 31 Days challenge, my life has been blessed by amazing woman.  This past year, when I moved to a new community, God blessed me with amazing friendships here in my community. But then God began placing blogging friends and women in my life as well. I tell you my cup is truly running over! 

And then I decided to participate in the FMFSnailMailParty. I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing it has been to open my mailbox and find an encouraging word. In all honesty, it amazes me each and every time how your words speak to me friends! 

The thing is that these friendship started on the world wide web have no lines. In fact, the lines of age are continually blurred. The distance in miles doesn't seem so far away when I open up my phone and hear a Vox from a new friend. You have continually cheered me on. You have continually reminded me that I am good enough. You have continually reminded me that I DO have worthy words to say. And the thing is I see us continually doing that for each other. I have seen us pray for each other. I have heard us rejoice in each other's good news. 

My cup is continuing to run over, my friends! And it is all because of you....my dear soul sisters here in my community. And because of you....my blogging friends....my Ra Ra Sisterhood! I don't know how a girl could get so lucky.

EUCHARISTO!

  5. Ra Ra Sisterhood! Awesome!! This IS an awesome group of friends we have all made on this world wide web, isn't it Tara!? I can certainly echo your post about the encouragements and inspirations and love and concern and prayers and...well, we all get it!!! I am not following as many of the blogs as I have - I haven't posted an FMF in quite a while; I didn't do the most recent FMF Snail Mail Party...I miss receiving the notes and cards from friends all over; but have been really busy - I need to get back also, Barbie! Sidetracked isn't quite the word; but I am here!

    Thanks for sharing, Tara!
