In My Daughter's Eyes

Every time I hear the song "In My Daughter's Eyes", I well up with tears. As a tribute to moms, sisters, aunts, and daughter's everywhere this Mother's Day, I have created this photo blog post. Several of the photos are taken by my almost-three-year-old daughter. It's truly through her eyes.
Lyrics, of course, copyright of Martina McBride.

I have embedded the youtube video for your listening convenience.

P.S. I confess to blubbering through this entire creation process.

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

This is a very cool and sweet post. I hope you publish your blog into a book. At least this post should be made into a book, I think. :)
