The Reese family brings in the month of July with birthday blessing. My one and only grandchild turns six (6) today. He’s my buddy, he’s smart, funny, can cook and I’m his OMA (German for grandmother).


Because his father is my stepson, I didn’t want to use the title of grandmother leaving that to his mother. So what should he call me? My first name starts with an “O”, I took that and added “ma” together and you have OMA. Later I found out that OMA is grandmother in German. Look at God!

The first couples of months this little boy didn’t want anything to do with me and I really took it personal. My hubby and I would keep him just about every weekend from Friday to Sunday. He was a good baby that required 95% of your attention because you couldn’t walk out of the room, even to go to the bathroom. Oh my he would scream and I would say JJ, OMA just went to the bathroom or laundry room.

He has my heart! I’m so thankful for him. I love this guy to the moon and back. Happy Birthday JJ.

  1. Hi Olivia! I love, love, love this beautiful testimony! I love how God blessed you with the German name OMA, meaning grandmother. That is totally amazing. It’s little things like that, that causes me love God more and more each day. It’s always the little things that means so much to us. I hope your grandson had a very Happy Birthday!
