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 eye"

I was in the car with Olivia this morning and a song came on the radio called My Daughters Eyes, by Martina Mcbride. I have always liked this song, but i guess i have never really listened to it. Maybe it just didnt hit me until i had a little girl or two for that matter. Seriously, the whole song is a tear jerker for anyone who has a little girl. It was just me and O in the car and it was early morning. The snow was still falling (yes thats another 5 inches for us) and this song came on. I looked in my rear view mirror and she was quietly just staring out the window. It mealted my heart. As the song was playing i was thinking about her and what she will become and how i will impact her to become a stong beautiful women, wife and mother one day. It doesnt make me sad that they are growing up so fast. It does make me aware that all the things i do will impact their lives forever. It makes me proud to be their mama. Why am i so emotional? These hormones are taking over again:)


  1. I love those moments! So tender. Maybe you're prego??? ha ha ha

  2. PS your mix CD from O's b-day is awesome!!!

  3. Isn't such a great CD! I received a lot of kids music for various occasions for Olivia so i put a couple of those on there. I love listening to her cds. I will make you copies of a few. They are mostly Christian cds. Also you better stop it with this pregnancy talk. Your going to jinks yourself:)))

  4. Hi! Just saw you on my blog! Thanks for being a reader!!! This song gets me going every time now that I have a daughter. Glad to know I'm not the only one who cries at random things!

  5. That song makes me cry.
    That one and I Hope You'll Dance - can't remember who that one is by.
    Thanks for following!

  6. I know made me break down, silently of course. Wouldn't want O to catch me crying:) I love i hope you dance. Also a tear jerker!
