In My Daughter's Eyes...


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 see who I want to be
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 holding 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'll see
How happy she made me
For I'll be there...
In my daughter's eyes.

That was the song that my dad and I danced to at mine and Chris' wedding. Makes me tear up everytime I hear it. Now I think of Avery everytime and it makes it even more precious! Have a good week:)
