The first thing my kids wanted to do when we won the RV from Camping World was head out to Houston to see my parents. Andrew, Brandon, Cameron and Daniel haven’t spent time with my parents since Christmas last year. So our first stop was going to get some grandparent love, but when I called my mom and dad, they told us we couldn’t come to The Lone Star state. Why? Because COVID19 cases are so high there, they don’t want the kids to be at risk getting sick because we visited them. My children were devastated and I can’t lie and say I wasn’t disappointed as well. I understood their point and want to keep my kids safe and healthy; however, it still saddens me that it’ll soon be a year since I’ve seen my parents and we have no idea when I’ll be able to see them again. COVID19 isn’t just taking lives, it’s taking relationships away and that makes me sad.
