Do you know.....?
Sisters, who dont really know each other, except for what they write on a message board. But treat each other like they were from their own chapter? Even as if they were family?
Sisters, who come to the aid of another that they barely know with tremendous letters of support?
Sisters, that when hearing about another sister whom is going through a difficult and trying time in her life send cards or letters of encouragement and love?
Sisters, who when on Ebay
, will see that another sister is bidding on the thing that she wants but won't outbid her?
Sisters, who write all the songs that their chapter sings, and you know each and everyone of of them are singing along as they write and read them bursting at the seams?
Sisters, who get along as alumnae and collegians?
Sisters who can put some pretty interesting post (*ahem* Real Play Movies) up and not have to worry about it. They know no matter how their sisters might feel about it, they're laughing at it right with 'em?
Sisters, who get together just to talk two times a week? Ranging from the most serious to the silliest things and sometimes about nothing... for hours?
Sisters, who call, PM and email another sister who they barely know anything about, just to see how they're doing?
Sisters, who send each other little gifts? Not caring about cost or getting paid back. But did it, just because you're connected by the word "sisters"?
Sisters, who will stop to visit another sister when they're on a trip?
Sisters, who will come to the aid of another sister when she is helping the bonds of sisterhood to grow and share this with new sisters?
Sisters, who give advice to each other whether it's personal or dealing with the sisterhood? Sisters who you know you can always talk to and will listen when you need them?
Sisters, who will cheer you up or encourage you to go for something?
Sisters, who may even kick a little a$$ and police for you?
Sisters, who can agree to disagree without pettiness? Who can get along, but not get along and still be cool?
Sisters, of all different economic, racial, and religious backgrounds?
Sisters, who aren't afraid to correct or put each other in check?
Sisters, that in a time where their bond is coming under fire, whether it's something that has happened in the sorority or some other thing, instead of flaming back, hold themselves in dignified manner and poise and state the facts but will admitt to mistakes if made? Holding up to everything their Purpose
stands for? Holding truth inviolable, sincerity essential and kindness invaluable. Possessing high ideals and attaining somewhat unto them. Coveting beauty in enviroment, manner, word and thought.
I know a board full of them. This one.
Sappy and corny, yeah I know. But I have been thinking lately (especially today since we did a lil getting to know yourself and others activity with the kids today) who much we all do on this board for each other. Ranging from little things to big things. We always talk about how positive our board is, and it truely is. And with a lot of stuff that has been going on with us as a sisterhood and just indiviually, I thought it might be nice to remind everyone what we do for each other and that you can always count on someone to be there.
In all honesty, how many people would do or think about doing half the stuff that was written above or other stuff we may do for people who they barely know? Let alone people they actually know? Many people could only wish they could have people like this in their chapter let alone just in their lives overall.
Seeing what we do is why I am happy and proud to be in Alpha Gamma Delta
Red and Buff roses to us ~@~
