We need each other. Isolation is insidious. It is a big dark shadow that falls cold over your shoulders.
We get in our cars alone, go shopping alone, do any number of errands alone, worship alone, and are cloistered caring for our loved ones alone. Our children, or neighbors or even our church brothers and sisters call us for brief chats on the telephone. They mean well but they really don't know what your life is like -this caregivers life. As soon as we hang up the dark shadow returns.
