Soundtrack Saturday

A few weeks ago, I posted about Martina McBride's song "Blessed." Well, as I feared, it was out of order, but this week's song really is one of hers. (I told you I loved her. I always find so much meaning in her songs.) This week's is "In My Daughter's Eyes." The first two lines "In my daughter's eyes I am a hero I am strong and wise and I know no fear" reflect my hopes of being a good mom. But the rest of the song talks about how it's actually the daughter who has the wisdom and saves the mom.

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
