Call for Submissions: I Miss My Grandchildren

The coronavirus has affected everyone in a myriad of ways. We wonder how it has affected grandparent-grandchildren relationships.

Virtual gatherings are better than nothing at all, but the warm hug of a grandparent/grandchild cannot be duplicated. And we wonder if the advice and guidance we share with our grandchildren are lost in virtual meetings.

In “normal” times, do your grandchildren help you out? Groceries, yard work, carrying heavy items, transportation? If you haven’t seen your grandchildren in a while, how are these jobs getting done?

Grandchildren bring such joy to the grandparents. Is that joy the same over the phone or via FaceTime or Zoom?

Tell us your story. Have you seen your grandchildren since the coronavirus hit our community? Have you missed a birth, birthday, or celebration? Are your grandchildren some of the first people you will see when the stay-at-home orders are lifted?

Send us a photo if you wish. We will select a few stories and photos and post them on the MLiving website and Facebook.
