Grandmother's Day and Mother's Day Experience

The inspiration for writing this blog about Grandmother's Day and Mother's Day came from being in lockdown.

In 2020 the state where I reside was in lockdown. Which meant, getting together for Mother's Day face to face was not possible. So, it was celebrated virtually.

Now it's 2021. And, it's uncertain what things could be like here or in other countries.

In February 2021, my state is in a 5-day lockdown! I understand so that we can get to the donuts again. We reached donuts!

But then, the next strain arrived from another state. And, the vax race is on so that my state can open again. That date is getting closer.


Be Prepared

Be creative!

What can you recommend to spend time with your Grandmother
