Once upon a time in a suburb of Texas a wonderful event occurred. Alex joined our household.
On this day Alex was born, being the youngest hasn’t always been the easiest but he has worn the mantle well.
So here is what I want him to know on his birthday:
You were the best surprise I have ever had. When you were born you completed our little family. You were full of smiles from the start, Mr. Sunshine face, that is what Elizabeth would call you. Waking with a huge smile every morning will earn you a moniker like that.
I have had the privilege of watching you become the man you are today and I am in awe of your strength and perseverance. I am so proud of you and humbled that God chose me to be your mom.
I love you beyond infinity, never forget that son. We may not agree on everything but I love our conversations and lively debates. I am so happy you know how to have a rousing debate without allowing it to become an argument.
I am so proud of you for making the decisions you have for your life. The life you have today is due to your struggles of yesterday.
I know without one doubt your grandma and grandpa Testerman would be so proud of you. My dad would have loved conversing with you as much as I do.
I love you son, Happy Birthday!
