I took His Hand And Followed.

My dishes went unwashed today. I did'nt make the bed. I took his hand and followed. Where his eager footsteps led.
Oh yes, we went adventuring my little son and I.

Exploring all the great outdoors. Beneath the winter sky.
We wandered past a crystal stream, we wondered through a wood. My kitchen was'nt swept today, but life was sweet and good.

That my house was neglected, that I did'nt sweep the stair. In twenty years no one on earth, will know or even care.

But that I've helped a little boy, to noble manhood grow.

In twenty years the whole wide world, may look and see and know.

Good girl. NOTHING, but NOTHING, is more important than the love of one's parents.
