“We all move forward when
we recognize how resilient
and striking the women
around us are.”
Within the past week I’ve been dealing with some girl drama. I live with 4 girls age 12- 15. I’ve now got 4 new baby sisters to lead into womanhood. Honestly I do not miss that age at all. Teen years can be full of so much hurt and insecurity. But as I think back on those days and ALL of the mistakes I made I know that God used that pain and time of life to help me grow into the woman I am today.
Being a woman is so beautiful. I know many women only experience hurt from other women, but I think God designed our female hearts to be able to breathe into other female hearts in such a special way. Females offer life to the world. We offer love and emotion.
Walking the girls through their disagreements reminded me of the struggles I had with friendships when I was younger. I’m thankful now that I journeyed through those times so that I can now walk my new little sisters through this stage of life. I want them to know they are strong and powerful, and it’s okay if another woman is strong and powerful as well. God uses all of us together to achieve his purposes. Instead of arguing we should be lifting each other up and celebrating each other.
Today I celebrate being a woman and loving all of the women in my life especially my new little sisters!
