NATIONAL SISTER'S DAY!

In the words of author Elizabeth Fishel, "a sister is both your mirror —and your opposite." Please join me Sunday, August 1, 2021 in commemoration of National Sisters Day, celebrated the first Sunday in August every year around the world. Let's recognize our prowess and power as sisters and friends, as well as being a blessing to each other, individually and collectively as an organization.  

While each of us has our own personal journey, it's comforting to know that we have a sisterhood that connects us, supports us and lifts us up during the light and dark parts of our journey.  Our sisterhood is the solidarity of our shared conditions, experiences and interests.  

National Sisters Day aligns with PFPMA's mission to support the mothers of professional football players, wherein we discover a lasting sisterhood through PFPMA relationships. Women supporting women is a mantra upon which PFPMA was established and is a song we sing individually and together to meet our mission to strengthen PFPMA and ourselves. PFPMA is a sisterhood like no other; a beacon lighting the way of our paths.

Our sister, Velzina Williams, Southern Regional Coordinator, has proposed a wonderful way for us to celebrate each other as sisters and PFPMA as a sisterhood of mothers; and it would be great to have 100% membership participation. 

 Here's how:

  • August 1 - Find a picture that reflects a PFPMA sisterhood memory
  • Post the picture to your social media platforms
  • Tag a sister to show love and support
  • Use hashtags #NationalSistersDay, #PFPMA, #womensupportingwomen #nflmoms

 Also, as some of us may not be on social media, let's each take a moment and connect with a new or existing PFPMA member and make sure that she knows she is supported and appreciated. (Our interactive member directory can be found in our new PFPMA Info Hub.
