Sister Wives Sisterhood
I am not a polygamist but I love the idea of sister-wives...minus the whole being-married-to-the-same-man-ness. What I mean is this: I love Adam. I don't wish to share him. But I miss having roommates in college- I miss the close communion of other adult women when you are living life side-by-side...day in, day out. I miss seeing the same gal pals every day.
Plus, the whole village raising a child idea is awesome. When I go to my playgroup, I see a glimpse of this...we are letting all the kids play and helping each other meet our kids needs. Oh, so-and-so needs juice. Oh, so-and-so is accidentally smothering so-and-so with a pillow- I should intercede even though it's not my kid. I love that.
So, maybe I just need neighbors with whom I'm really close and we have daily fellowship and playgroups. Or maybe I just need to find ways to spend more time with my girlfriends. (Girls' group once a week is just not enough!) Either way, I need more sister-friend in my life.
