Today I had a weekly gathering of phenomenal women at my house. I can't say enough how these women support and lift me. They are three intelligent, warm, caring, hilarious, creative creatures that I am so thankful crossed paths with me some months ago. Thank you Ravelry!!! There are a couple others that don't get to join us every week, but they fit in the phenomenal category too.
We don't waste our time trashing others. We agree on most things, but when we don't, it's ok. We can have healthy, intelligent debate, and it's always served on a plate of "what can we learn from this," garnished with "oh, the pretty!," and served up with a side of hilarity, and a heaping bowl of "well, allright then" for dessert.
We agree that we are not a group, nor do we have meetings. I think we need a new word, or perhaps an old word used in a new and provocative way to define what we are. "Support" can be called "advocate," "favor," "back," or "champion." We applaud, approve, endorse, pull for, adopt, embrace, defend, and sustain each other.
Being sister-less all my life, I've always envied women who had sisters. I've had many friends that made up for it, but I've never been involved in a group like this that meshed so quickly.
Since we're all beautiful, intelligent women, could we be called a bevy? How about a covey, a company, a kindle, an intrigue, a charm, a pride, or a wisdom? I like "a wisdom." It says what we bring to and what we gain from getting together. I also like "an intrigue." It makes us sound so brilliant and clever and deep.
"Sisterhood" works too. God knows we have all the "Ya-Ya" anyone could possibly have.
Whatever it is, and whatever we call it, I love it and I can't wait for next week!
