I think that having a companion is so important whether it is a person or an animal it is good to have some one you love by your side.  They say having a dog lowers stress. Maybe that is true. I think that since I have gotten a dog it has helped me. Do you have a dog or  a cat? Do you have one person you can always count on? If you are you are really blessed. I think being a lone is nice at times but we as humans need love, touch, and companionship.  How do you feel? What do you think? Who is your companion? Is it your spouse? Are you empty nesters? Are you recently both retired?  There are so many people out there that are alone some choose to be and others they want companionship but they just do not have it and that breaks my heart. I think all this craziness going on leads to depression and suicide. I think that people need people. What do you think? Are you okay with being alone? I know my Dad liked to be alone but he also had M. M was everything to him.  She lived close by and they got together, went on trips. and spent time together. Once M passed my father was very sad. He would never tell me but I knew.  If you want to be with someone that be with them. Do not waste any time. Tell them how you feel. You will always be grateful you did. Now onto the next life lesson.
