Celebrate grandparents this weekend for Grandparents Day!
The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on everyone but perhaps most especially for the older generation who has been extra cautious to avoid compromising their health. Many adult communities have been closed to visitors and activities, creating isolation for some residents. Whether the grandparents in your family live near or far, all grandparents love an excuse to connect with their families.
Grandparents Day takes place every year on the Sunday following Labor Day. This year, that hits on Sunday, September 12, 2021.
Whether or not you are able to be physically together on Sunday, there are many things you and your children can do to make the grandparents feel loved. Having the children write a card or drawing will be meaningful. Sending photos of the family often makes grandparents smile. Sending flowers or food for delivery brightens the day. Send a gift of books, jewelry, a cozy blanket or anything else you think they will appreciate. Placing a video call if you are not able to be together will allow them the luxury of connecting virtually.
Grandparents are special people and have a special place in our families and our hearts. Celebrate them extra this Grandparents Day. They’ve been through a lot and they love hearing from you!
