I hate saying good-bye to my grandchildren, even if I know I will see them in a few days.
I have one little guy that lives a 4 hour plane flight away, and I have to wait months between our visits. Heartbreaking … though you gotta thank the heavens for Facetime! I am always looking for ways that grandmas can stay more connected to their grandkids. That is where a grandma and grandchild journal comes in!
As I was surfing Facebook one day (read “Facebook Junkie”) I read about a woman, Hillary Weeks, who for years has kept a journal that is just between her and each of her daughters. She has 4 daughters, which means she has 4 journals. For each child she writes a message and leaves it on her bed and the child writes a message back and leaves it on her mom’s. Those precious journals are a treasure to them.
