Grandmothers Day and Mothers Day


The inspiration for writing this blog about Grandmothers Day and Mothers Day came from being in lockdown.

In 2020 the state where I reside, I was in lockdown. Which meant, getting together for Mothers 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, and my state is in a 5-day lockdown! I understand so that we can get to 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

So, let's think outside of the box.

What can you think of to spend time with your Grandmother

  • virtually
  • face to face outdoors
  • face to face indoors

that is different from previous years?
