Did you read the post Time Out for Family Time from yesterday? Did you answer the question at the bottom?
Well....if you did, let's see if you got it right. These lyrics make you really think about family time and how quickly it slips through our fingers.

Cats In The Cradle, Sung by Harry Chapin
Love this song!
The lyrics to this song originally started out as a poem written by Sandra Gaston (Harry's wife). The inspiration for her poem came from her first husbands relationship with his father and a song she had heard once on the radio. Harry Chapin also said that this song reflects the relationship that he had with his own son....and "it scared him to death."
When I listen to this song, it scares me.....I get goose bumps and vow that I won't be like that. I swear to myself....I will change and spend as much time as I can with my kids.....but it's hard.
