My friend telephoned me this morning.
Alice: I can’t believe what some people are saying.
Me: Hello to you, too, Alice! Saying about what?
Alice: Your new post on your Facebook page.
(I am putting my post on here so you know what Alice is so mad about. It’s that cloudy message above!)
Me: Well, I read the comments, as I always do. I love when people join in!
Alice: You’re too nice. Here you are, in just one sentence, communicating how horrible it is to be separated from your grandchildren, and some people need to tell you that they just saw their grandkids this week — or whatever!
Me: I see what you mean.
Alice: Someone even said her grandchildren are a continent away but that didn’t stop someone from complaining she’s not seeing her in-town grandkids enough.
Me: Alice, Facebook is a conversation, just like my blog is. And grandparents just want to share their joy.
Alice: Even when you just shared your pain?!? Grandparents who have their grands in town just don’t get it what you and I go through.
Is Alice right? I’d love to hear what you think in the Comments section below.
Also, if you haven’t “Liked” me on Facebook, please do. Search “Miles Away Grandparenting” on Facebook and then hit the Follow button. I appreciate it! There are differences between my blog (what you’re reading now) and my Facebook page.
