In my daughter's eyes

Tommy and I went to wedding Saturday night and the DJ played a song that really hit me. I actually started crying (i guess it's the pregnancy hormones). I've heard this song played a million times and it never really had any effect on me but it's funny how it has a whole different meaning to me now. It's 'In My Daughter's Eyes' by Martina McBride. I can't wait to see Abigail's beautiful eyes...only 8 more days!!

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
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.

I love that song and I know exactly how you feel. I can't believe there's only 8 days until our due dates!
