Today is the kind of hopeful, lovey day we need more of- it’s National Cheer Up the Lonely Day.
This day was founded by Francis Pesek of Michigan. His family says he had a heart of gold and was always looking out for the folks in his neighborhood and just about anyone he came into contact with. Today was his birthday, so the holiday was set here.
We all know someone who’s home bound- be it due to illness, mobility issues, or something else. Chances are, they are lonely. Wouldn’t today be a great time to give them a call or stop by for a chat? If you don’t know them that well you could also mail them a card- when is the last time you got a card just because? Didn’t it make your day? It would make her day too.
