In My Daughter's Eyes

While driving home from work tonight, I heard the most amazing song entitled "In My Daughter's Eyes". It seriously brought tears to my eyes, the words really spoke to me in a way that I have never felt before, and so I had this incredibly overwhelming need to include this song and these pictures to Jillians blog.


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 daugter'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

Happy 1/2 Birthday Jillian Grace!!!

Today Jillian is officially 3 1/2 years young. Most half-birthdays go unremarked, but they may still be celebrated as a special day and that's exactly what we do in our family (well at least for Jillian). So yesterday Jillian and I celebrated her half birthday at Aquatica.
Happy 1/2 Birthday Jillian Grace!!! Mommy and Daddy love you very much 222-222

Last week we meet up some friends for yet another fun day at Sea World. Let me apologize in advance for more SEA WORLD pictures...I just can't help myself ;-), this is our happy place we go there often. However this trip we were joined with not one but four of Jillians friends, so it was not just any regular day at Sea World it was special. Not to mention it was our good buddies Gavin and Mrs. Katy's first time at Sea World.

Jillian, Wyatt and Gavin.
