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 if she would please

follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn’t

notice her.

She 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, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy

as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole


As the two 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. She

said to Timmy, “Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week?”

Timmy shrugged and replied, “Yeah, I know who she is.”

The little girl said, “Well, who is she?”

“That’s just Shirley Goodnest,” Timmy replied, “and her daughter Marcy.”

“Shirley Goodnest? Who the heck is she and why is she following us?”

“Well,” Timmy explained, “every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with

my prayers, ‘cuz she worries about me so much.”

“The Psalm 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!”
