Couldn't have said it better myself, Martina.

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 daugter'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

{Happy Thursday!}

Martina is our family favorite!! We refer to her as M & M! Isn't it amazing God's gift to us - our children - or should I say His children. Miss you bunches. Give Chloe a b-day hug and kiss for me.

I don't know about everybody else, but these last three posts have me a little choked up. She is one VERY LUCKY GIRL to have a mother who adores her as you do. She is a VERY LUCKY GIRL.
