It is so easy in our society to be alone, to be left alone. Single adults who live alone can easily spend whole days, whole weekends, without talking to anyone more meaningful than a store cashier.

However, the daily contact that comes with sharing a home, having someone to say “Good morning” and “How was your day?” and perhaps falling into a conversation offers a social connection that can ameliorate the loneliness that so many live with.

When we listen to someone else and offer the gift of our attention and being, this exchange creates warmth and connection.
