I am trying to be better about visiting my parents. So many days go by when I stop and think that I have not really sat and talked to them in person. I am always running here and there, with school drop offs and pick ups, homework and bed times.
I think back to when my grandma was alive and in better health. I think about all of the times I could have visited her, but didn't because I was caught up in my world. Now, there is no going back. I often get a thought of wanting to visit her and I can't. Its just an empty spot that I can't fill. I don't want that to happen with my parents. I don't want to feel that again. I want to know that I did all I could and was there all I could be. That I sat there and talked to them.
I want my children to know how important it is to spend time with all of their grandparents. They are creating memories that I hope will never be lost. I want them to feel that love that only grandparents give, because it is special.
Every time we do visit them, it definitely is a fun time. The kids love them and love being at their house. Even when there is nothing to do. We find something. We do it all together.
