  • 10 Ways Your Grandchildren Need You during COVID-19

    There are many cliches about grandparents: how they spoil their grandchildren, how they allow their grandchildren to eat treats and watch television, or how they hang every piece of their grandchild’s artwork up on the refrigerator. These may be lighthearted stereotypes, but there is deeper truth to them, as anyone who is blessed to have grandparents in their life will affirm.Growing up, I was abundantly blessed to not only have a grandpa and a grandma in my life, but to have seven living grandparents (including great-grandparents). These grandparents each poured into my life in different ways: some by having me over for fun sleepovers, some by giving me special gifts on birthdays or holidays or even “just because,” and some by adding money to my college savings. Above all, my grandparents blessed me by showing an interest in what I was interested in; by listening, remembering, and engaging with me.While I have had to say goodbye to some of my grandparents, my paternal grandmother and I still have a close relationship that has enriched my adulthood. During these challenging times of COVID-19 we have shared phone calls, messages, and laughter.Living in the time of COVID-19 may mean that you are not able to see your grandchildren in person, but there are still many ways you can show them you love them, and many ways they need you in their lives.Photo Credit: © Getty Images/Yakobchuk Olena

Some jobs are already gone, others are “furloughing” workers without pay. Those of us with infant children or grandchildren may wonder what kind of world these little ones will inherit.What will our country be like by the time they grow up? Despair invades our thoughts at night. Even though we manage to remain positive during the day, worry lurks around the edges of our minds.We need hope—but where can we find it, and how can we catch hold of it?Photo Credit: ©GettyImages/Comstock
