My Miracle Lily

I recently reposted 2 videos I'd made for Izzy and Dasha celebrating their adoptions. As my little boo is lying in her bed healing, I thought I should make a video celebrating her inner and outer beauty.  When I heard Martina McBride's song "In My Daughter's Eyes" for the first time years ago, I was blown away by the lyrics.  It's as if they wrote the song about Lily and me.  She's my miracle and I'm ever thankful God gave her to 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 want to 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,
How it puts a smile in my heart,
Everything becomes a little clearer,
I realize what life is all about,
It's hanging on when your heart is 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,
And 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

That song made me cry. I loved the older pictures of Lily with her little fat face!
