Dare You Not To Cry

Alex came running into the house last night asking if he could play with his friend. I ask him who he was? He has never asked to go anywhere or play with anyone without Emma with him. He pointed across the street and I saw one of the cutest kids ever. He was this husky type of kid with over sized clothes. I asked Al was his name was and he told me Alex. Al and Alex.....way to cute! Alex is in 4th grade and goes to the same elementary school as Al. I was watching out the door and saw my only son making friends. What a site to see. Here was this little boy, who is always afraid of people making fun of him, making friends by himself. I am so proud of my son. He has come so far. I think back and remember all the horrible things the doctors said. "He will never be potty trained" (age 4) "He will never talk" (first words 'I love you') "He will never be in a "typical" class" (Al's in main stream and is a straight A student). All these things that they told me he would never do, he has done with gusto. Alexander is a true inspiration to me. If it weren't for him I have on idea where I would be. Just read the song and you'll understand everything. I dare you not to cry. I always do. Because you loved me. Celine Dion (Diane Warren) For all those times you stood by me For all the truth that you made me see For all the joy you brought to my life For all the wrong that you made right For every dream you made come true For all the love I found in you I'll be forever thankful baby You're the one who held me up Never let me fall You're the one who saw me through through it all You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me You gave me wings and made me fly You touched my hand I could touch the sky I lost my faith, you gave it back to me You said no star was out of reach You stood by me and I stood tall I had your love I had it all I'm grateful for each day you gave me Maybe I don't know that much But I know this much is true I was blessed because I was loved by you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me You were always there for me The tender wind that carried me A light in the dark shining your love into my life You've been my inspiration Through the lies you were the truth My world is a better place because of you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me (bis) I'm everything I am Because you loved me
