WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING
children are watching 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.



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



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



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



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



When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had little, and learned that those who have something should give to those who don't.



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



When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you handled responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good, and learned 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 learned sometimes things hurt, and it's all right to cry.



When you thought I wasn't looking I saw 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 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.'



I received this in my e mail and thought I would share it because it is so true. Children do watch everything we do. Enjoy!
