The month of September brings a lot of change. For all of us it marks the end of summer, may she rest in peace. For some of us it means the start of school and the return to routine. That’s not my story but I see ya’ll. For me and my sorority sisters, it means it’s time to get back to the business of serving our greater Seattle community.
I love the start of the new sorority year because it comes with so much promise. The energy and excitement is palpable. It is a lot of work, but it is also a lot of fun. A sorority is about sisterhood, after all. And there is no sisterhood like a Delta sisterhood. Let me be specific. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Haha. (IYKYK)
This is an appreciation post of sorts. I am grateful for my sisters. Whether it is helping to create service programming, giving advice on how to navigate personal conflicts, or celebrating big and small things in life, we love hard. So, yes. This is an appreciation post for my Sorors near and far. They hold me down, we hold each other down, we hold our communities down.
As we dive into the new year, I look forward to the abundance of good times, working side by side with my sisters to do the work of Delta. But I am also excited for the fun — the belly laughs over shared meals, the inside jokes, hangouts, and other celebrations. I look forward to the planning meetings and happy hours. I look forward to the early morning service activities and meetings. Life is just fuller when you get to do it with your sisters.
