In my daughters' eyes

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

Found this online and had to post it for my daughters. It is sung by Martina McBride and I love it!!!


This week has been VBS at our church. Our son has gone all week and really enjoyed it. The girls have also been working at VBS too. It has been a very busy week. Wednesday was water day and I think the favorite day of all the kids.

This is Ricky having fun in the water games. He came home soaked!!!!! Today is the last day of VBS and they get to see who wins the grand prize which is a bike. Ricky has wanted that all week but not sure if he will win since he didn't want to memorize any verses or get too many extra points. We'll see. His team over all has been winning though and he has been telling us all about the missionary story that they have been hearing all week. I'm impressed. I just hope the heat isn't as bad as it has been all week. We are still dealing with air conditioner problems. We have one that works but it is a smaller unit and only puts out so much cool air. It has been in the 90's and very humid this week. Today is suppose to rain so hopefully there will be some relief from the heat.

What's going on.....

I know I have neglected this blog for a while. It has just been so hard to keep up with this and everything else that is going on. I am keeping very busy this summer with work and not much time to keep up with blogging.
We had a really nasty storm tonight. Thought we were going to have to go to the basement but it passed. It did blow one of our windows right out of the frame. Now that is some strong wind. It didn't break though. Also, our daughter's car alarm went off. Guess it was the hail or rain that set it off. The bad thing was that the pad to shut it off was in her car so hubby went out and shut it off. Life is never boring around here. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Am really glad tomorrow if Friday. Am looking forward to the weekend and some time off to get things done around the house.

Summer blahs

Again the days have flown by. Can't believe it is July already. Before you know it we will be getting the kids off to school again.
Today is another busy day of work. Both my older girls work today and the younger two are just chillin' at the house with "nothing" to do at all. Ever heard that phrase at your house?? I mean the kids have game cube, PS 2, books, games, and could even go outside to play but there is still not anything to do. Maybe today if it doesn't rain we will get the new sprinkler out. It is a beach ball that shoots water out of it. It is a lot of fun. The kids played with it last week,on the day we DIDN'T have rain, and really liked it. Will have to post pictures later of it.
Well, off to work again. Have a great Tuesday.
