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.
Martina McBride sang this song and every time I hear it I can't help but think about my amazing, incredible daughter (Ms. Fashion). I have been so blessed to have a daughter who is fearless, loving, smart & beautiful inside and out. This child is who I want to be when I grow up! Since she was a baby, she was social and intelligent. She is not scared of what life throws at her, she welcomes new challenges with eagerness and confidence in her abilities to handle what life has in store for her. I tell folks all the time, I don't know where she gets it from? Frankly, I'm a BIG chicken! I am scared of change and need to mentally prepare myself for life's tough days. But through Ms. Fashion's example, I believe I am slowly changing my attitude and the way I see things in this world. It's funny, because as parents, we are the ones that are supposed to teach our kids how to handle this world, but I believe she is the one teaching me and all I can hope for is that one day she'll have her own precious daughter that will continue to show her the light in this dark world.
In my daughter's eyes, I can see the future. A reflection of who I am, and what will be. And though she'll grow and some day, leave: Maybe raise a family, When I'm gone, I hope you'll see, How happy she made me, For I'll be there, in my daughter's eyes.
