Mother's Day Gift

It happened in an instant. Actually, it was building up for about 9 months (give or take a few weeks). I was a mom. I held that baby, my precious angel, and knew I would never be the same. My wants, desires, priorities would change. I would do anything to protect this tiny child, now and forever. Suddenly my perspective grew. It wasn't just about me anymore.

I'm not one for quoting songs, but one I am very fond of was recently played for me.

" 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..."

Even if you don't have a daughter, this is very much true. I want to say how thankful I am for my 2 "Mother's Day Gifts". I am very blessed!
