LiV lives far away from me physically but never spiritually and is always in my heart. Just like all my family members, who I miss dearly.
I have felt the geographic distance caused as a result of my career between me and my family to live thousands of miles from my grandkids. I feel sad to live across the country from the grandkids and, therefore, see them less frequently.
As COVID has rapidly escalated, that distance between my grandkids and me might as well be another continent. For all practical purposes, I have become a long-distance grandparent.
