Musical Monday - In My Daughter's Eyes

Hello Everyone,

**brought to you by Jori and Diane**

Today my Musical Monday is "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride. It is so true about how I feel about my daughter. I have posted the video but also the lyrics. It just sums up how I feel about having her in my life. She was sent to rescue me and I am glad that she has grown into a wonderful mother. She makes me very proud and I am so glad at how close we are.

Watching her have her own child and how she is with him just amazes me. She is by far a better mother than I was at her age. She has such patience that I didn't, she plays with him constantly which I didn't. I just see so much more in her as a mother than I ever felt that I ever did when she was little. I am so blessed to have her as a daughter. She is my greatest love.

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

Just read the lyrics of this song. She thinks I can fix anything. She knows I am there for her no matter what. I am glad that she feels that way about me because in her eyes I give her that comfort of knowing I am here. She'll never know until she's probably my age and having her own grandchildren of what she gives/gave to me.

Have a blessed day!
