Frances is 5!

In My Daughter's Eyes
by James T. Slater

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 
Oh, 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 
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 

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

Because Mr. Slater (and Martina McBride) said it better than I ever could, this song is dedicated to my incredible daughter who turns five today.

Happy Birthday, Frances!
Love, Mommy


  1. Beautiful post Lucy, bravo. Xoxo, Taylor

  2. Awww, Taylor, thank you! I am a schmaltzy mess when it comes to my kiddos, but it sure is fun to go through five years' worth of pictures. Hope you are well with your newest addition!
