How my daughter makes me feel...

She is hope. She makes me feel like I’ve done something right. Like when you hear a song that just perfectly captures a moment. Or like a friend who always says the right thing. Or the day you never want to end. Like a fall breeze or a cold drink on a hot day. So cheesy when I read back through those descriptions, but that’s how she makes me feel. Her daddy makes me feel similarly, but it’s not the same. There is an intimacy there with Lewis that isn’t there with Isis. Together with our Creator, we created her. But she still has changed me - to the core. 

I sincerely hope to be able to give her beautiful moments, songs that fit life perfectly, friends that say the right thing, days she doesn’t want to end. I hope to provide an environment where she can grow, thrive, change, discover. I want her to be free to dream & hope; to make mistakes & learn; to cry hard & laugh harder. Life has so many mysteries & so many wonderful distractions. I want to give her freedom. I want to give her joy. She has absolutely given it to me.

Somehow, finishing Something Borrowed made me want to write this. I highly recommend you check it out.

How does your child make you feel?

I often say my children are my teachers. My oldest daughter taught me dreams do come true. Our angel who was stillborn two years ago taught me how strong I am and that I have the ability to go. Our youngest daughter taught me about hope and that there is light after the dark. She is my little rainbow.

Have you heard the song In My Daughter's Eyes by Martina McBride? Even if you don't like country music, it's worth checking out. My favorite part is,

"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."

Mrs Mother - I love that song, too! I constantly find myself in tears now when I hear songs about having children or parents & daughters, etc. I love it!
