Covid-19, thé pandemic and all, sure has thrown a monkey wrench into family gatherings, hasn’t it?
As first time grandparents, we see the tots on ‘FaceTime’, but you can’t hug a phone and expect an emotional response.
What about letter writing to the kiddos? Give them something to hold that came from you. A sheet of paper?

I did just that, wrote a story, and it’s been fun. It had to be a real story, something that actually happened with a fair dose of ‘writer’s license’. That is, I could stretch the truth a bit just to make it more fun.
