A "Tissue Alert" Sing-along

(Turn off the playlist music now)

Today's post is for you, V. I love you.

I'd install a "follow the bouncing ball" feature if I could, but for you sing-along fans, here are the lyrics:

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

I can't see the video on my work pc (damn network nuts). But I know the song well and I LOVE Martina McBride. I am thinking of taking the girls (Shay and Anna) to see her in concert when she is here. Tickets went on sale this past weekend so I guess I better go look. Thanks for reminding me. Gotta run.


P.S. I saw your garden. You are so mucht the over achiever. All I do is mow the grass. No flowers or plants for me. Too much work.

I love that song. My daughters are both grown with children of their own so now that song applies to my awesome grandkids. I'm blessed to look in their eyes almost every day.
Thanks for sharing this. Love your flowers, someday I will have to get some pics of my flower beds, wish I had thought of it when my lilies were in bloom, they were gorgeous.
