"Sometimes in life we stand outside waiting for a door to open. We hope the person behind the door will let us in and be our friend. I was once on the outside until a door opened to me and behind it I found a sisterhood. Now I stand behind that door on the inside, hoping to open it to someone else who stands where I once stood."
