Precious Moments

Last year this time I was on the Oregon Coast
Surrounded by the most amazing women
Each one so talented, so brave,
So willing to open up and share themselves

It was a moment in time that is forever etched in my heart
And since then I have not been the same

We stood along side one another
Held each others hands
Gave each other space to grow
We were present in the moment
And with each other

We learned how precious sisterhood really is
And we felt the power that happens when women come together
We laughed
We cried
We opened each other up
And held the space for one another

Even though a year has flown by
This sisterhood has remained strong
Support and love swirls through this group

My eyes well up with tears
When a candle is lit
A prayer is said
A hug is given
And a cheer is sung from the mountain tops

Even if it is virtual
It is filled with deep meaning

Thank you scarf sisters
For being exactly who you are
For spreading your wings
And soaring
The journey you are on is precious
And I am so lucky to watch it all unfold
