While at work the other day, my friend Jeanne's daughter Amy blasted through the room. This is a common occurrence now since she has moved back home for the summer. She attends USC and will be a Senior next year. Exciting stuff!
I love Miss Amy like she were mine. (I secretly wish she and my oldest would get together - but . . . do not envision it happening.) I've watched her blossom from a little Alice in Wonderland in first grade, to a beautiful and kind young woman.
But the new thing I've watched with her this past year is this ~ she joined a sorority. She shares an apartment with 3 of her sorority sisters and she is just having a ball. And it reminded me of someone.
Me. I'm having a ball with all of you!
It's like we have a sorority too! I guess the closest thing to one I've ever experienced would be the PTA. Those women, all 60 some odd of them, over the 6 years I was immersed in it; were incredible.
And now I have all of you! :)
Don't you think we have a special something
between all of us?
I mean, we visit each other sometimes daily - we know each other's family and pets. We go on vacation with each other, and share our hopes and dreams. We are there for each other no matter what ~ no matter when. Some of us have been fortunate enough to have met one another. At the very least - talk on the phone. We share our creations, our homes, our visions. Don't you think this is an awesome thing we have going?
So I think we should create
our very own "Sorority".
I'm not quite sure how far I want to take this . . . so I'm open for suggestions. I've been thinking about it for the past couple of days, and mentioned it to a few friends to see what they thought. We could name our sorority, I can have a button made, and we can proclaim our special "sorority day" by having a special blog party. I have some ideas, but would love to hear what the rest of you think about this idea?
Please Email me or comment on this post as to what you think! I can't wait to hear from you! I'll be reading them over the next week or so to see what transpires. And I'll let you know!
Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day.
