A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking
to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him.
She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some
independence but yet know that he was safe.
So she had an idea of how to handle it.

She asked a neighbor, Mrs. Goodnest, if she would
please follow him to school in the mornings, staying
at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.
Mrs. Goodnest said that since she was up early with
her toddler anyway,it would be a good way for them to
get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

The next school day, Mrs. Goodnest and her little
girl, Marcy, set out following behind Timmy as he
walked to school with another neighbor boy he knew.
She did this for the whole week. As the boys walked
and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy's little
friend noticed the same lady was following them as she
seemed to do every day all week.

Finally he said to Timmy, "Have you noticed that lady
following us to school all week? Do you know her?"

Timmy nonchalantly replied, "Yeah, I know who she is."

The friend said, "Well, who is she?"

"That's just Shirley Goodnest," Timmy replied, "and
her daughter Marcy."

"Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following

"Well," Timmy explained, "every night my Mom makes
me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she
worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says,
'Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the
days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get
used to it!"

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his
face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the
Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you!
peace. Numbers 6:22-26

May "Shirley Goodnest" and "Marcy" be with you today,
and always.
