In My Daughter's Eyes ( In my case, a Son)

I was browsing through mp3 files collection and I came upon this song by Martina McBride. I first heard it in Oprah Show a few years back, and my the lyrics really brought me to tears. It was beautiful and at that time I am not yet pregnant. Thus I was a bit emotional, I guess.

In My Daughter's Eyes - Martina McBride

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

But now, there's a lot to be thankful for. Altho this song is for a daughter but having a son it makes no different. I dedicate this song to all mummies out there!
