I saw you on CBS Sunday Morning today and I totally agree with you; that going to bed alone and waking alone are the two most lonely times of the day. The lack of another human being next to you as you sleep is sad. No one to cuddle up next to when the night is cold or to cling to when you wake from a nightmare. And the welcome face of a loved one to greet the day with, to team up with to face the world, can change ones outlook for the whole day.
Thank you for putting yourself out there for us lonely souls to contact. May you not be alone for long. :-)
