A Special Greeting....Please read..."Sisters and Daughters"

Dear Hyster Sisters,
Each year at this time we have a delicate issue to balance. While the world celebrates and honors our mothers, for many this day is a painful reminder and grief of the loss of our wombs. It can hit at the core of who we are...

Last year, one of our hostesses posted this post for our website. It tugged at the heartstrings of our members and reminded us of the legacy of women.

And so, with your indulgence, please enjoy and celebrate Sisters and Daughters by Susan:

I've searched for weeks for the words to tell you all how much you mean to me and to honor you. YOU who have held each others hands, comforted each other, reached inside the very soul of each of your sisters and given each other the strength and joy to carry on through a very difficult time in each of your lives. Finally, I found this quote from Naomi Brutke from her poem "Sisterhood".

The community of women gathered round,
formed a circle of hope that put
men...and death...to shame.
Today is a very sad day for many of our sisters. It represents what they will never have or never be. My heart breaks for each and every one of you. As much as this day is for the Mothers of this world, I submit that we are all Mothers of this earth, Daughters under our Higher Power, and Sisters by choice.

Women are the nurturers of this planet. Yes, many of us nurture children, both our own and those of other women. We also nurture all of life.

Whether we take care of a child, develop a career, tend to plants, or grow dreams, we are all nurturing Sisters and Daughters of our planet. We make a difference with every tear we dry, every hand we hold, every joy we share, every hope we bring to fruition. Heather Heizman once said "Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy." It is a common trait we all share as nurturing, loving women.

To you, the sisters and daughters of this world, I propose that today be HysterSisters Sisters and Daughters Day. No matter where you are and what you've done in your lives, you've made a difference. You've loved, you've nurtured, you've befriended, you've given hope, you've shown strength, you've led by example, and you've made a difference.

Happy Sisters and Daughters Day to each and every one of you.

Blessings, Susan
Thank you for being gentle with each other.

Ah dear {{{Kathy}}}, what a wonderful tribute for us all...Personally speaking, the emotional aspect means even more this year then ever before. I believe many of us have taken a step back, and re-visited our deepest selves, and re-affirmed to ourselves that which truely important and valuable in our lives. I know that I have.

May we all take what we love... that which gives us the push to get up and face each day renew our faith and remember to rejoice in the blessings these things bring.

Love to all my Sisters~

Kathy -

Thanks for re-posting this (and to Susan for her original post). I'd seen if before, but it's never meant more to me than it does this year. You have been such a blessing to so many through this site, and clearly, you continue to be.
