Loneliness is an awful feeling. Everyone'sfelt it at one time or another. And it feels like a downward spiral. There's no hope. There's no relief. There's just your feeling of emptiness. And it consumes you.

Someone I know is lonely. And it breaks my heart. I want to help. I wish I knew exactly what to do to make it better.

I have a tentative plan. I have launched a campaign to become more involved in this person's life. I'll send cards. I'll send articles I think they'd like. I'll call. I want them know that they have a friend and they have someone there always...if not in person.

So, that's my plan and I'm sticking to it. I sent out the first card last night. And I feel better already. I hope they feel better too, when they receive it.
