I see who I wanna be.....

Sometimes I just sit and look at these 3 beautiful girls of mine and shake my head. How on earth did I get so blessed? They really are amazing.
Beautiful. Funny. Smart. Compassionate. Generous. Forgiving. Teachable. Understanding. Wise. Cute. Friendly. Energetic. Silly. Creative. Responsible. Respectful. Kind. Patient. Diligent. Merciful. Lovable.
I never even begin to pretend that my kids are perfect. Sadly, I tend to err on the other side. I want for them to behave and I can be hard on them sometimes. However, as I think about the great people that they are and that they are becoming, I just sit back and smile. What a bunch of neat people God has blessed me with! They forgive my imperfections, (and trust me, as a home school family...they see them all!) they learn from their own mistakes, and really do just enjoy life. I have so much to learn from them and I'm SO GRATEFUL!!!
I'm sure you've heard this song a bunch of times...but, I can't help singing it today as I think about my blessings!
It's In My Daughter's Eyes by Martina McBride....I just love it!!
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
