Miss You Much

Writing Challenge Day 16 – Something that you miss

Babyman And His New Room

Babyman and His New Room

A few weeks ago Pocahontas and her family moved about 5 hours away. She’s always lived within a hour and we rarely go a week without seeing each other. I am very close to my daughter and being separated from her is not easy.

I have also seen my grand-boys (Babyman and Dr. Evil) on a weekly basis up until the move. I just don’t like missing time with them that I and they are used to having regularly. Dr. Evil is an infant and so I am missing some firsts/key moments in his life especially. Most days I do pretty well, but the last week has been difficult. I love all of my grandchildren dearly and being apart from any of them breaks my heart a little.  We talk on the phone and via Messenger Video. I am technically not missing that much due to technology, but I cannot touch, smell, kiss, tickle, or hug them and that is rough.

I get to see them this weekend and I cannot wait!

To all of you grandparents who live a significant distance from your kids/grandkids my heart goes out to you, I think about you and pray for you. Relationships are precious; value them and treat them with great care!

  1. Oh, that is hard. One son and two grandchildren live close. The younger lives in Boston near his wife’s family and when the babies come I won’t know them. Driving that far is just too hard for me. Skype will be it except for maybe two visits from them a year.
