In My Daughter’s Eyes by Martina McBride
Every time I hear this song it brings a tear to my eye and if I am listening to it with no one else around after a long day or a rough patch in life it makes me just weep and allows me release and get every emotion that I may be feeling out.
This song encapsulates everything that mothers want for their daughter(s) and how our daughter(s) truly see us as mothers.
I listen to this song when times get hard, whether it is financially or emotionally.
From time to time I find myself thinking about my divorce and the reasons why I left. There are those time when I do question if they were valid reasons for leaving. I question whether I should I have tried harder and should have pushed through the worst of times just one once more to see if the better was just around the corner. But then I think about this song and it cements the true and only reason I left was because of my daughter and that is all that matters.
When I want to give up and not push anymore or when I think that I don’t have the strength to go on. I listen to this song and somehow, and from somewhere I get the strength and energy to keep pushing. Not for myself but for my daughter. She is the reason why I push and will continue to push each day.
If I have to struggle day in and day out EVERYDAY by myself I know that I can do it! I will do it!
