The idea behind Five Minute Friday is simple. A word is given at the Heading Home blog and you have five minutes to write on that word. This week's word is "unite". Why don't you join in. You can go to the link above to link in.I love the way my friends here in Niger unite together. So much is done in groups and being alone is not a concept that is understood. While John is gone, I am asked all the time if I am lonely. Being an introvert, and seeing how I'm at the office all day, and because I live on a compound with neighbors, yes, I miss John greatly, but no, honestly, I'm not lonely. But the majority of Nigerien women would never stay alone in a house. If a woman doesn't have children, she will usually have a sister or a niece come to live with her to keep her company and to help her with household chores.
