DAY 33: Sunday SoulJourn – Super Girls
I wholly believe that spirits recognize their kin. Paths cross over the course of a hectic and fast-paced life as we maneuver around obstacles and race towards the finish line that keeps moving.
I am fortunate to know many super women whose paths crossed mine at some point and though the roads differ, the journeys remain the same. As we search for meaning, purpose, love, hope, and expansion of mind and body, the kindred spirits walk together yet on our own.
I called these amazing super girls to join me in celebration and while not all could attend, those who did filled my soul with joy, love, and friendship.
To my writing pals – Doreen, Camille, and Cate: I treasure our friendships. You inspire me, impress me with your talent, and remind me that artists thrive when they support one another. You are each phenomenal, important, and valued!
To my treasured friends – Ellen and Tina: We’ve been through a lot together, traversed over hills and across valleys side by side. We’ve laughed, cried, and cheered for one another. I admire both of you and love you dearly. Though I may call infrequently and forget to text you back, the strength of our friendships never wavers in my heart.
To my mom and “baby” sister: I love you! Thank you for supporting my interests, coming to these themed parties, and attending my high school choir concert (even though you pretended to fall asleep)! Thank you for helping me when I burnt the first batch of SOUPER grilled cheese (that takes skill) and for teaching me how to properly wear a scarf.
I come from a family of super girls going back generations; they are smart, strong, brave, determined, and full of love. I learn from them each and every day.
There are so many other valued women who were not present at the Calling All Super Girls party, yet I celebrate them every day. I am honored to know you and hope you know that you are SUPER in my eyes.
I’ll be tuning in on Mondays to watch the new CBS series, SUPERGIRL. Each time Kara’s journey soars to new heights or comes crashing down to Earth, may we recognize that it’s the getting back up part which makes us super.
Here are some photos from the celebration. Enjoy!
