Thank you for reading my Journal

 I always wanted to be a grandma. and when your mom told me she was expecting you. I felt alive again, like a new mother feeling, but way better.

As the weeks went by I called your mom everyday to see how you was growing inside. You see I was not with you from the beginning I was 1000 miles away. Until your mom and dad moved from Mi to be with me in Az. OHH BOY I was so happy when we drove and moved you with us. Your mom was 5 months prego at the time.

I felt you moved inside, I talked to you, I sang to you. Everyday.

I could not wait for you to come in this world. That night came... and I was there as you was born. It was like the world stopped when you came into our life. I knew how much you are loved from us all. You was perfect.

As the months passed, I was there as you took your first step, I was there when you fell down and Grandma kisses your scraped knees. I was there when you ate BIG BOY food. I was there for your first birthday.... Then you all moved away again, back to mi.

My heart was empty without you in it everyday. I had all of the toys, diapers, and your outfits that I smelled everyday you was gone.

I wanted to be with you and your mom, so guess what WE moved back to Michigan to be with you.

My life without you was a life without smiles.

Now as  you come over to see grandma, You make me happy. As I watch you play with your toy trucks, as I watch you play with the dog, As I watch you eat....I love it when you point to JESUS PICTURE and you Say JESUS and you kiss him.

 That is HOME to me.

I love it when you take my hand and make me sit on the floor to play with your toys with you.... That is Home to me

and this grandma is so BLEESED... I love you my grandson, Jon. You are now 18 months old. I will be there for you.. Even when you are 18 years old.

I love you. Love Grandma

Always have Jesus in your heart my grandson, even when you are old and gray. I will be there waiting for you in GOD HOME.
