The well-thought-out plan has always been for each of the ladies to host a craft night at their home once a year. Our friend Wendy, who feels as though she was Amish in another life, bakes her own breads, makes her own soaps, and who knows what else.
She hosted Craft Night with the Sistas in July 2010, and we baked bread. Gosh, did her house smell absolutely divine, and so did all of ours the next day – but we sure left her with a mess to clean up.
We learned that night that it wasn’t only crafting that can bring us together. That’s the night we learned we had formed a sisterhood of sorts; that Rachel could throw flour on her mother, and she’d still be her mother.
That’s when we knew that sisters in the sisterhood understand. To share your authentic self is one of the best benefits of sisterhood. It is our safe space, and it is where and when we learned that to call another woman a sister is to say, “I trust you,” “I have your back,” and “I believe in you.”
That’s when we knew that sisterhood is empowering, and empowered sisters are superwomen.
The women in this sisterhood are beautiful, talented and powerful! I’m so grateful to have them in my life.
