Family isn't always about blood: Love + Sisterhood From Ajara

Dear Sisters,


There is a saying thats says family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what. Today, I have many women I call sisters, we are not blood related, but  share our joy, peace and happiness together. We support each other, and make sure we have a shoulder to cry when needed. To you my sisters I say thank you for being a part of my life. I love you, respect you and honor you. 

Love Ajara.

Love note by Lydia Limbe to her Sisters






Dear Flavius Rehema & Jacqueline Chepngeno,

Being a woman in this time and age is not an easy thing especially when you have no one who understands what you are going through. I am lucky to have had a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on and someone to always tell me “Nakufeel dada.” (I feel you sister). You display the most genuine friendship and heartfelt love that show you understand and truly care about others. It is like the love of a mother and child. A great woman once said, ‘when a door is opened for you, make sure to leave the door open for another sister to enter.’ You generously opened that door for me and I will make sure to leave it open for another young one to enter.
Thank you for showing me what sisterhood really means.
With love,
Millicent
