Father’s Day is one of those interesting
holidays that take place each year in our country. It is a day when Dad sometimes
receives a really ugly tie, not knowing how important it will one day be. Or maybe a card
that is thrown in a drawer but one day is found and brings tears to his eyes.
I came across this quote this week and wanted
to share it with all of you.
“‘Walk a little slower,
Daddy,’ said a little child so small. I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t
want to fall. Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they’re hard to
see; so walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me. Someday when
I’m all grown up, you’re what I want to be, and then I will have a little
child who’ll want to follow me. And I would want to lead just right, and know
that I was true; so walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!’”
The influence you have as a Dad will carry
throughout your child’s life, so when life gets crazy, “Walk a little slower Daddy”.
Start children off on the
way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
