HOPE FOR THE LONELY HEART

CONSIDERING THE NUMBER of people on this planet, it's amazing that so many of them experience sadness and loneliness.

They're surrounded by family and friends, and their lives have all the ingredients of what the world says is needed to be happy and fulfilled. But I know what they're going through.

Many years ago, as a young mother, I felt very dissatisfied, sad, and lonely, even though it looked as if I had everything I needed to be supremely happy: a wonderful family made up of a caring husband and two rambunctious little boys. We had a home that we loved, and relatives and friends we were close to. Both my husband and I had fulfilling jobs.
