What a girl!

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 want to 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,
How it puts a smile in my heart,
Everything becomes a little clearer,
I realize what life is all about,
It's hanging 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,
And 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.

Happy 6th birthday sweetest Elsie Mae!

(lyrics to In My Daughter's Eyes, performed here by Martina McBride - It's worth the listen, too, especially if you are a mama to girlies and haven't heard it before.)
