Thanks for all the thoughts. I have an 8-5 job, have a son of 18 and daughter of 16 - both at school. Son finishes school this year. Have a lot of stress of finances in general and son has to go study next year and without funds (eg. bursary) there is NO chance. I live for my kids ! I have been a widow for 13 years. I struggle to get thru on my salary a month.
It is just that I feel alone ! I am not one that makes friends easily as I want to be able to trust a friend and this bites me in the back often. I am a person that loves sharing with a friend because I am so alone, and then a firiendship goes sour.
My kids and I have a wonderful relationship. We love each other.
I miss that companionship my husband and I had in our 12 years of marriage.
Unfortunately nowadays here by us (South Africa) everything you want to go and see or do costs money - nothing is for free.
Thinking of all of you out there that are lonely as well - each in their own way ....
