This new life of social isolation has been difficult. Some of us haven’t seen extended family for more than 10 weeks. We don’t realize how hard it is to be away from family. Our parents and grandparents are important to us and it's good to check in with them. Even if they live far away, you should call them often. This is a fantastic time to get to know them better.
I recently lost 2 of my grandparents and this made me realize how much I wanted to learn about their lives but never got the chance to ask them. We always think we have so much time to learn about our heritage, family traditions and stories about our grandparents growing up, but often we don’t think of asking those questions until it's too late. Once they are gone that information is lost forever unless we find some way to document it. I currently have one grandparent left and I am committed to having my children get to know her despite us living in separate countries. I found this amazing opportunity to have all of the process handed to us to interview grandparents and ask all the right questions to capture a picture of their lives, traditions, heritage and to learn where we came from.
