A Little Girl Follows Me

A careful woman I ought to be;
A little girl follows me.
I do not dare to go astray
For fear she'll go the self same way.
I cannot once escape her eyes;
What're she see me do, she tries.
Like me, she says, she's going to be,
The little girl who follows me.
She thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine;
The bad in me she must not see,
The little girl who follows me.
I must remember as I go,
Through summer's sun and winter's snow;
I am building for the years to be,
For a little girl follows me.

-Author Unknown

I am at the point where my little girl mimics everything I do, so this poem really touched my heart!  My prayer is that she will learn to love Jesus by my example.
