V: Sisterhood and Survival


sisterhood mystery

If you’ve read Stick Horse Cowgirls for very long you would know that one thing “C” and I are in complete agreement on it is the importance of “sisterhood” –the enduring  friendship of women.  Life IS hard sometimes and we need each other!  I hope our friends out there do not get tired of hearing that message, but lately we are getting constant reminders of how vital it is to have that connection—sometimes for our very survival!

Let us cheer each other on!




In the blogging community, two neighbors, have come forth recently with their stories of desperate domestic situations.  Brenda, of Cozy Little House  http://www.cozylittlehouse.com , and Belinda of Ninja Poodles http://www.ninjapoodles.blogspot.com are both strong, smart women who have found themselves in a bad predicament.  I hope you will visit these women and peruse their archives—you won’t be disappointed!  They are both profound writers and exemplify the talent of women in the blogging community.   Brenda has recently taken action to get out of her situation and is planning a move to Oklahoma.  Belinda’s husband suffers from Bi Polar depression and she has a y0ung daughter.  Ninja Poodles was one of the first blogs I ever read—(she lives in our neck of the woods)!  At the time I didn’t really know what blogging was.  Unfortunately, Belinda stopped posting regularly due to the enormous stress in her personal life, but hopefully she is back.   I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to tell their story—they have done that themselves so very eloquently.  Truly, their writing is a gift!  Open it!


Opened gift


So, I just had these two women on my mind today and thought perhaps a shout out in the community might influence a few to offer their prayers,  support and encouragement. 

Kind words

V...this post really touched me. You set a great example for me today. I will visit Brenda's and Belinda's blogs soon...and I'm praying for them already.

God bless them both in their situations and help them thru their struggles.

I did visit both blogs and was overwhelmed pretty quickly. You see, this is my parents' story. Both gals are in my prayers and I know that the Lord has better things in mind. What's that that Dr. Phil says? The only thing worse than a bad marriage is a bad marriage and one more day or something like that.

I never had a sister and I always love to hear about sister relationships. There is just something special about sisters. You are both blessed!
