In My Daughter's Eyes

Have you heard of the song In My daughter's Eyes by Martina McBride? If not, you have to listen to it. Especially if you have a daughter of your own.


This song In My Daughter's Eyes brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. I remember singing this song to my daughter on our way to her school. My heart will break every time I dropped her. I just wasn't ready to let her go just yet. She looked so little. Perhaps it was the over sized backpack that was half her height. I could barely see her skinny legs. And the farther she walked away the more my heart ached.



In her eyes I am a hero but if she only knew that I cried every time she went to school. I thought to myself why does this have to be so painful? Why couldn't school start when the kids were older? Why did they have to have my daughter's cutest years. The years where she was still experiencing life for the first time. I didn't want to miss out on her firsts. Her first reading assignment, her first addition problem, or her first sight word.



I know what you must be thinking. Are you serious? And yes I am. I wasn't ready to let her go. She was sent to rescue me. I see who I want to be in my daughter's eyes.She gives me strength everyday especially those days when I feel Satan is winning.


When she gently grabs my hand as we are walking she melts my heart and I feel a little bit of heaven in every grasp.


My legacy will be how happy she made me. Thank you baby Jesus for my baby Jayla.


In my daughter's eyes.
