The ceremony was followed by Feast of Roses, which is a banquet for the new members and their parents. When all the sisters stood up to sing “Today” it gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes, for the thousandth time that day. What a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful sisterhood.
Tuesday our newest sisters finally joined us in chapter! I have never seen the room so full! When we stood in a circle, we could barely fit around the room! I have tried to form some wonderful thoughts about what these women mean to me, but all my feelings can best be summed up by this: “From the outside looking in, you could never understand it. From the inside looking out, you could never explain it.”
