Hugs with 98 Year Old Grandma

My 98-year-old Grandma is in assisted living and hadn’t had a hug in over a year! Wait until you hear some of the conversations and special moments we all shared with my Grandma! It’s truly incredible and we are so grateful for the science that made this all happen! We hadn’t been inside with my mom without masks in over a year. Our recent trip to Ohio in this incredible Outdoorsy RV Van brought so much love and joy along with the most amazing conversations.

This time together allowed us to reminisce about days gone by and I can’t even begin to tell you how magical it was to see her face light up when we were talking about all these memories. It’s funny, isn’t it? You forget about how much you cherish this time together as a family until it is taken away from you. I don’t know about anyone else, but this is something I will remember forever. Of course, we spoke about stories that we had heard 100 times before, but there were several new ones that we were able to speak about.

My Grandma spoke a lot about her family, some of whom I had never even heard of before, and that is when I realised that I don’t know much about my ancestors, and how I would like to do some further research into them. Many people I know have pointed me in the direction of a site like Genealogy Bank (check out here for more information) that will allow me to search the names of these family members in the hopes that it will provide me with all the information I need to learn more about where I came from and what my roots are. I think anyone should do it personally, especially if they don’t have a bond with some of the older members of their family.

I’m just so glad we were able to have this amazing visit with my Grandma, and I’m hoping and praying that we can do it again very soon because these times are precious.
