Maintaining close contact with Family abroad

The difficult part of this COVID-19 is not just about isolation in our homes since mid-March, the most difficult part is the fact that many of us are missing our children and grandchildren settled in other cities and countries.

Quite a few of us have our kids abroad for studies or work; many have grandkids too. It’s so unfortunate that we are not able to meet them, as it is certainly dangerous for us 50+ generation to travel.

MISSING FAMILY

My Granddaughter, Simar was born in Feb. 2020 in Seattle, USA. Our plan was to go there by June and be with the young family for some time, we wanted to help them out, we wanted to watch our first grandchild grow and we were looking forward to enjoying some family bonding. And then this whole Corona story started unfolding.

At that time, jokingly I said,” Hope this whole Corona thing goes away soon, otherwise Simar might come walking to greet us at the airport!” Looks like my words were prophetic.

Simar is nine months old now and there is no hope of our meeting our little princess even in the next 2-3 months.

HOW TO REMAIN INVOLVED?

Yes, my son and his wife do ensure that we get to see Simar’s pictures regularly, we video chat every single day, we see her playing with her toys, we are fully involved, all this virtual interaction is great friends but we are dying to hold her, touch her, hug her, cuddle her up, feel her baby-soft body, snuggle up to her.

HOW WE CHANGE?

Earlier, whenever we would see our friends doting on their grandkids, altering their own plans to babysit them, pandering to their whims, I would say,” Hey, carry out your own programs, don’t become slaves again!” and our friends would retort,” wait till you get your own.”Friends, now I realize what they meant.

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS TOO OLD TO LOVE AGAIN, I BECAME A GRANDPARENT!

HOPE IS THE KEY

Diwali has gone, December is around the corner, this is the time for our migratory birds to come back to the nest, but this year, we empty nesters are keeping our fingers crossed, keeping the nest warm none the less!

“GIVE THE ONES YOU LOVE WINGS TO FLY, ROOTS TO COME BACK AND REASONS TO STAY.” I find this Dalai Lama quote so apt.

Just praying for everyone’s safety wherever they are,

and, waiting eagerly for good times to come,

Renuka.

  • Hey, this is Eric and I ran across seniorjosh.com a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.

  • Hello, my name’s Eric and I just ran across your website at seniorjosh.com…

    I found it after a quick search, so your SEO’s working out…

    Content looks pretty good…

    One thing’s missing though…

    A QUICK, EASY way to connect with you NOW.

    Because studies show that a web lead like me will only hang out a few seconds – 7 out of 10 disappear almost instantly, Surf Surf Surf… then gone forever.

    I have the solution:

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to TALK with them – literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works and even give it a try… it could be huge for your business.

    Plus, now that you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation pronto… which is so powerful, because connecting with someone within the first 5 minutes is 100 times more effective than waiting 30 minutes or more later.

    The new text messaging feature lets you follow up regularly with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

  • It looks like you’ve misspelled the word “Comunity” on your website. I thought you would like to know :). Silly mistakes can ruin your site’s credibility. I’ve used a tool called SpellScan.com in the past to keep mistakes off of my website.
