Happy Birthday Alex! He’s our oldest grandchild. He’s 16(!) today! He’s the curly haired smiley baby who taught us a love deeper than anything we had ever felt before. He’s living proof of the reward you get if you don’t kill your kids when they are teenagers. I’m kidding. Maybe. He’s in high school now. ROTC. He’s taller than his Papa and wears a size 15 shoe!! We are so proud of the amazing young man that he has become. We can’t wait to see what God has in store for him. Whatever it may be, I know that Alex will be just fine. Better than fine. This young man has a heart that is 3 times his shoe size. Watching him grow up has been such a privelage. I truly cannot believe that he is 16 years old. Excuse me while I go cry.
