FAMILY – Children and Grandchildren – Our Greatest Treasures
Throughout history families normally lived together, fusing, bonding as a whole. Children developed family ties and strong roots. The same estate – property, house, and business often provided the entire family with a place to live as well as a family income. Today in our global world however, families do not live nearby as they did in centuries past.
If circumstances force us to live long distances apart from our children and grandchildren, does that means we have to give up the closeness we would love to share with the ones dear to our heart? By no means! We are an integral part in your children’s and grandchildren’s life. Distance might make it slightly more challenging – but it can also make it a lot of fun.
This blog will be a way to share some of the unique ways in which we can strengthen relationships, form strong bonds and stay connected to children and grandchildren we hold so dear to our hearts.
When my children were growing up we lived a military life and lived far from family. Now that my children are grown I have grandchildren that live long distances away. I am sure many families face the same challenges. I will share some ideas that can help us stay close to the children in our lives – whether they live near or far.
I hope you enjoy this blog and I welcome your input and ideas.
Let’s have Fun!
