Our sisterhood bond is Unique at World Pulse

"When World sisters meet the feeling of sisterhood becomes a reality"

How lovely to meet my adorable Arrey for the first time. She came to see me at the hotel where we were having a workshop in Yaoundé, Cameroon on the 15th of April. Such an emotional moment. Rushing towards i gave her two mighty hugs, one from Me and the other from our lovely Jill. I told her earlier Arrey would be coming to visit so she asked me to give her a big hug on her behalf.  I had to rush back into the hall as I was the sign language interpreter for the conference. Arrey was willing to wait until we finished. She ended up waiting for over an hour. That brought me even more admiration from her. Her patience and willingness to sacrifice time for someone she was meeting for the first time. Even may colleagues made some very positive remarks about her. With her usual smile on her face I invited her to have super with me/us. I introduced her to our program manager who express his willingness to work with her on her program with people living with sickle cell disease. He gave her his contact. We moved to my hotel room where  we spent time chatting away like we had known each other for ages and met before.

Lovely Arrey you are such a dear!!! Thanks for visiting me. I had always loved to meet you especially as you inspire me a lot and thought me that it was possible to overcome fear. Love you so much dear sis. I can still feel your presence and see you smiling. I pray our plans to work more closely on programs become a reality. I miss you dear sis. The World Pulse bond is very strong.

My dear Sis Regina,
It was such a soul moment seeing you and feeling your warm embraces that memorable April 15th.

The excitement to see you when you sent me a text you were coming could not be explained.

Your warmth and care was endearing and I thank you for making me feel comfortable around your colleagues. They were indeed a warm and welcoming bunch and I truly cannot wait to be able to carry out a project with you for the disabled community.

There was no way I was leaving without getting a little private moment with you so, it was just natural to wait. Thankfully, I had my ever present book to.read so the time sped by.

Love you sis and keep being you as we all do our part to keep the pulse love flowing. And yes, I felt the hug from Jill, all the way from Spain, thank you, Jill ❤.

Warm hugs and love always.
