Happy Birthday Alex

Today my son turns 22.  That really doesn't even seem possible.  And he will always be my little cupcake.

I was 36 when Alex was born.  It took me several years to get pregnant and I remember when he was born he was so tiny.  I would hold this little soul and stare into his eyes and wondered if I would be a good parent, if he would become a responsible citizen of the world and if he would know how much I loved him.

Alex was one of those children that always seemed happy, he rarely cried and never had temper tantrums.  And once he started school the time flew by so quickly.  My little boy grew up in a blinking of an eye.  And now he's 22.  And he has grown into a kind and generous young man.  I'm so thankful that he is my son.
