Widow + Sister = “WISTER”
We’re women. We’re widows. We’re mothers, grandmothers,
daughters, granddaughters, aunts, sisters, neighbors, friends
and families. We’re a community. We’re a movement. We’re thrivers!
What is a Modern Widow?
Society believes widows are older women who have lost their spouses, and are long into retirement. We know that this is NOT what a widow is in today’s world. We are seeing a great number of young widows still raising kids and trying to balance being the sole-provider of their family, being a loving and supportive parent to their grieving children… all while trying to navigate their own grief journey.
We are not JUST a widow, we are a widow who is thriving in the middle of the most difficult time of our lives. We may have lost the love of our life, but we have not lost our love for life!!
What is a Sister?
SISTERHOOD: defined as “an association, society, or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade.”
We are sisters by the bond that we all share together. We stand together, in sadness and in joy! We embrace each other, and support each other. The group that no-one wants to belong to, but glad we found. Sisters aren’t always related by blood, but share a love and devotion to one another.
What is a WISTER?
We honor the legacy of our loved ones by living each day to the fullest, embracing every new chapter that comes, and being the type of person to carry that legacy into our community.. being an encourager, a supporter, and a mentor, for those who walk in the same path we did.
We may have lost our loved one, but we have not lost our zest for life and we strive to make an impact on someone else who may be going through the same struggles.
