I GOT FURIOUS ONE DAY AT MINI.  BECKY SAT ME DOWN AND SAID SHE IS ME.  IMPOSSIBLE, THAT KID CANNOT BE ME.  I WAS NOT DEFIANT AT ALL.  THEN I REMEMBERED THIS SONG.  My father lives in me and has crossed into Mini such that he lives in her.  The resemblance in everything is a bit shocking.  The best punishment you get is when God gives you a child like what you used to be to your own parents.  No regrets.  I would do it 1000 times and more.  I have my father's eyes.  The rest is history. This one is one of my favourite songs from Amy Grant.  I play it every time I miss my father.  But I have this little Mini that stares into my eyes and words are not necessary.  I miss you father.  Fifteen years and the pain is still very raw, in fact worse because I watch you growing in her.

"Father's Eyes"

I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world
But that's all right as long as I can have one wish I pray
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say

She's got her Father's eyes, her Father's eyes
Eyes that find the good in things
When good is not around
Eyes that find the source of help
When help just can't be found
Eyes full of compassion, seeing every pain
Knowin' what you're going through, and feeling it the same
Just like my Father's eyes
My Father's eyes
My Father's eyes
Just like my Father's eyes

And on that day when we will pay for all the deeds we have done
Good and bad they'll all be had to see by everyone
And when you're called to stand and tell just what you saw in me
More than anything I know, I want your words to be
