Long distance Grammy/ Abuela de lejos

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Living far from those that you love can be a difficult dilemma. Everyday my mind goes to thoughts of my precious Baby Lina. I want to hold her in my arms, and let her know that she is loved completely.

Since I can't be with the ones that I love, I sew for her. I also go shopping to find the accessories for the outfits that I make. I have found little matching shoes and sweaters at thrift shops.

There is always a way. Maybe it is not perfect, In any and every way that I can, I show all of my Grand kids ( ages 6 months, 6 years, 9 years and 13 years old ) that I love them. I send cards, make phone calls, and listen when they talk.

One day, life will be different. I will hold my little grand daughter in my arms, rocking her to sleep as I sing little songs to her. I will play in the yard, and talk to her about birds, animals and the trees. Until that day, I will sew the outfits that she will play in, and the blankets that will wrap around her, and hold her close.
I am a long distance Grammy for now. I look forward to being the close-up Grammy one day!

La vida lejano de aquellos que ama puede ser un dilema difícil. Cada día mi mente se va a pensamientos de mi precioso bebé Lina. Quiero tenerla en mis brazos y que sepa que es amada completamente. Puesto que no puedo estar con los que me encanta, coso para ella. También ir de compras para encontrar los accesorios para la ropa que yo hago. He encontrado poco coincidente zapatos y suéteres en tiendas de segunda mano.

Siempre hay un camino. Tal vez no es perfecto, en todo y de todas las maneras posibles que puedo, mostrar todos de mis nietos ( 6 meses, 6 años, 9 años y 13 años de edad ) que me encanta. ME envían tarjetas, hacer llamadas de teléfono y escuchar cuando hablan.
Un día, la vida será diferente. Esperaré a mi nieta pequeña en mis brazos, mecedora para dormirla como canto una canción a ella. Se juega en el patio y hablar con ella sobre las aves, los animales y los árboles. Hasta ese día, suturará los trajes que jugarán en y las mantas que envuelven a su alrededor y tenerla cerca. Por ahora estoy un Grammy de larga distancia. Espero que un día el primer Grammy!

    My Grandkids are scattered from South Carolina to Maine. The older kids are very particular about what they wear, so I do not sew for them.

    I feel you!
I am blessed that my two oldest grands live with me. The two from my son are in another state, and my youngest is in another COUNTRY.

    Your blog hits close to home for me, as I too am a long distance grandma for two of our five grandchildren! It's great to see someone else who aches to be closer to her babies but making the best of the here and now! Love ALL my grandbabies!

Thanks for sharing! By the way your little dresses are adorable!

Have a blessed day!
