Loneliness – Some Days are Better than Others


A lonely bench near a country road
Loneliness comes when wishing I had someone to discuss the road we are on.

When dealing with loneliness, some days are better than others. Not that today was terrible, but…

I won’t go into everything about today. It was pretty much a typical day and when I just typed it out it was exhausting and sounded like I was complaining. That is not at all what I want.

I just want to know I am doing the right thing. I wish life came with assurances.

I wish I knew all the answers. I wish I had someone to lay my head down with and talk things over, the good and the bad.

I have concerns about my boys, about our next steps, about jobs, and housing, and life in general. Sometimes life a as a single mother is lonely, not in the dating sense, but in the sharing sense.

For anyone out there feeling lonely tonight. You are in my prayers. You are not alone.

God Bless…


John 16:31-33

New International Version (NIV)

31 “Do you now believe?” Jesus replied. 32 “A time is coming  and in fact has come when you will be scattered,  each to your own home. You will leave me all alone.  Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome  the world.”
