Next month we will be celebrating our second grandsons 1st birthday!
I was so excited for his arrival, but I was also a little reticent at the prospect of being a “long distance Grandma.” I was afraid that I would miss out on all the special moments and changes that happen in the first few months of this little guys life.
If ever there was a time that I would want to be in two places at one time, this was it.
Since the day he was born, there have been multiple pictures, face time sessions, and frequent visits either by car or by train.
It’s the life of a “long distance Grandma”, but I’m pretty sure that as a result of these efforts, when he saw me last week-end, and his little eyes lit up, it was because he knew who I was!
And once again…my heart melted.
I’m so glad we have made the effort to be committed to the priority of connection across the miles.
I have to admit it though…I would still like to live closer to him.
