Walk a Little Slower, Daddy

Walk a Little Slower, Daddy

When my DIL sent me the photo
below, I cropped it and
remembered this poem.


"Walk a little slower, Daddy,
Said the child so small.
I'm following 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.

His daddy, a GREAT model for both our son and daughter.


Someday when I'm all grown up.
You're what I want to be.
Than I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.


This is the photo
of my son and my grandson.
My daughter-in-law likes it because their feet
are side by side.  I do too!


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."

--Bobbie Norman
