Good advice above. Also - sounds like you need to fill your days with more. Do you have a wonderful pet? Do you enjoy reading? If you still work, maybe throw yourself into it more, maybe look for interesting volunteer opportunities, take more time getting together with friends, travel, even if by yourself - you never know who you might meet. Then, when talking with children, they will understand you are doing more at home than just pining for them - they'll probably feel like calling more often just to hear what you're up to, and, you'll feel even more fulfilled with added interests!
Best of luck - you got this!
