Not really sure what my topic is today but I'm feeling the need to recap some of the weekend. I'm a slow processer, so I'm still going through conversations in my head and discovering more connections among us.
When I got back and friends started asking me how the weekend was, I found it difficult to assign a word to it like "fine" or "great" or even "awesome". Those singular words just didn't do it justice. So here's what I came up with when asked: It was the first time that I wasn't The Only. I wasn't The Only:
- college graduate
- one who was kicked out by her parents
- one whose parents still don't discuss my birthchild 25+ years later
For those of you that were there, thank you for sharing your hearts, your stories and your time. You amaze me, inspire me, and heal me in ways I didn't know I needed.
For those sisters that weren't there, I hope you know you are truly not alone. It's not just a phrase to make you feel better. It's really true.
Love you Super Girls!
