Sometimes we get so carried away in the hustle and bustle of life we don’t stop for the truly important things. Look around you, look up from your smartphone. There is a whole world out there of people looking for real friendships. Oacha wrote on her Facebook page, “We had a wonderful talk, and she just kept smiling and saying thank you for listening to me, which made me smile too! Her words healed my heart just as much as I healed her lonely one. By far the best decision I’ve made all year!!! Her name is Delores, and we will be having lunch every Thursday from now on.”
