Sisterly Love

Every winter, I spend a weekend with a group of my sorority sisters, helping them with the business end of things and also catching up. I have to admit that some years are better than others. If business takes too long, for example, those of us who are well out of college are bored for hours. But this year was easily the best time I've had. We played Taboo for hours, updated each other on everything going on in our lives, gossiped, and looked back on our favorite memories together.

Some of these women I've known for almost nine years and some I've barely known for nine months. Some of these women I speak to almost on a daily basis and some I've only had a handful of conversations with. No matter which group we fall into, however, our sisterhood lets us skip any awkwardness or pretense and jump right into things when we get together.

I went into the weekend not expecting much, but it was one of the best times I've had in months. Most importantly, I came out of it feeling a stronger connection to my Hermanas. Our time together reminded me of the reasons I joined this organization in the first place: to make a difference in my community, to uplift other women, and to create a bond with a group of people who I would love unconditionally and indefinitely.

Even though we don't always get along or agree on everything, we are there for each other when we need it most, even if we don't realize just how much that is.
