The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. (Audrey Hepburn, late British actress)

It’s another way of saying what John Donne wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself.” We have all experienced times of loneliness when we cry out for someone to be near, “If only there were another person to talk to, someone to share my burden!” The psalmist wrote, “I lie awake, lonely as a solitary bird on the roof.” We’re human; we need companionship.

 It is you—my equal, my companion and close friend. What good fellowship we once enjoyed. (Psalm 55:13-14)
