In My Daughter’s Eyes

Even though I wrote this on this day in 2016, these words are just as true, if not more, today. My daughter is one of the strongest, most faithful, soulful, brave individuals I’ve ever met.

From 2/21/2016:
Cleaning out some messages, I came across a message from the BG with a screen shot of this song and a very sentimental note that I’ve since locked and saved. People comment on my faith and the depth to which I love and show compassion to others … part of it is a choice, but the biggest part of it has been seeing the world thru her eyes… including growing into the person she had always believed me to be. She has, is, and always will be the biggest part of who I am and who owns real estate in my heart. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned being her mom is that real love is neither quantifiable or proceeded by “because.” Life continually challenges us to grow or give up, love or leave, and just how fragile life is. I love you BG and am so humbled to be your Momma and am continually inspired and in awe of you.


In my daughter’s eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear

In my daughter’s eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace

In My Daughter’s Eyes – Martina McBride
