Between the two of us, Robert and I have four children. All four are in four different states (OH, CT, NH, NC), which is why we choose to live in central Pennsylvania. Last weekend, we drove to Connecticut to see two of my daughters and six grandchildren. Last month, we headed down to North Carolina to visit my youngest daughter and her three children. They're always whirlwind visits, but I can't complain. The time we get to spend together is so important and it's always worth the trip.
What I remember most about my grandparents was the time they spent with me. It didn't matter what we were doing. The talking and sharing while we were doing whatever we did -- now that is what was important. They spent time with me and it felt good.
