    WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING

    A message every adult should read because children
    are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
    first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
    wanted to paint another one.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
    stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
    to animals.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
    favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
    things can be the special things in life.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
    prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
    talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
    meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
    learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
    of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
    to take care of what we are given.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
    handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't
    feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
    responsible when I grow up.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
    from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
    hurt, but it's all right to cry.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
    cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
    life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
    productive person when I grow up.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
    wanted to say,'Thanks for all the things I saw when
    you thought I wasn't looking'

    This is a pretty profound post for 8:50 am. I think it would have more impact shortly after lunch!
