Celebrate Your Special Friends in September
Ask any woman--there's something special about her friendships with other women. Our female friends know us better than anyone else. They are there to listen, to console, and to encourage. They are our loudest cheerleaders and our most compassionate confidantes. Our women friends come in a wide variety--sister, mother, neighbor, childhood playmate, college roommate. We make connections at the playground, the workplace, the gym, and over the proverbial back fence.
From a leisurely Saturday afternoon over coffee to precious moments stolen for a late night phone call, our relationships with other women can sustain us and give life depth. We need to remember the important roles our women friends play in our lives.
In 1999, Kappa Delta Sorority created National Women's Friendship Day to do just that. And in 2009, the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September. Now known as International Women's Friendship Month, the celebration offers all women the opportunity to remember their special friends.
Over the years, women have celebrated with luncheons and spa days, weekend trips and seminars on issues important to them. Groups visited museums and toured historic sites. They reached out to women in need by visiting nursing homes and collecting supplies for women's shelters and women in the military. The power of women's friendship is amazing!
Mark your calendars and join us in celebrating women's friendship in September!
International Women’s Friendship Month was created by Kappa Delta Sorority.
