It was twenty five years ago this past Friday that I became Ma Ma for the first time.
It was on a Sunday night.
I came home from church and found out that my oldest daughter had gone into labor.
Off to the hospital we went.
We had some waiting to do before his arrival.
After the waiting was over, we went to the nursery and a nurse held up my grandson to the window so we could get a good look.
I can still picture in my mind that precious little baby boy through the window.
I always said that he was my little boy that God gave me.
I always wanted a boy.
He was named John Lee, after grandpa John and his dad, Donald Lee.
He has always been "Johnny" to us.
He was the joy of my heart.
I think he stayed at my house every weekend until he was "grown up".
When he had to go home I always cried.
He practically stayed the entire summers when he was old enough for my youngest daughter to watch him while I was at work.
He went on every vacation with us.
When he was five years old, he got his first nintendo.
He loved playing it.
When he was a little older, he got the game "The Legand of Zelda", which was his favorite.
When I was shopping for his birthday gift, I saw the t-shirt pictured below and just had to get it for him.
He is all grown up now and he and his wife are expecting a little girl on March 27th.
He will always be "my little boy".
