The silence hits you as soon as you open the front door.
Their joyful giggles, little footsteps, and loud, imaginative play once filled your home with love.
Now the rooms sit empty, echoing memories from visits past.
Though it hurts your heart profoundly, you can take steps to cope with the sadness of not having your grandchildren close.
With intention and creativity, you can lessen the pain of distance and continue to be part of their lives.
This time apart doesn’t have to rupture your unbreakable bond.
