When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

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 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 saw you bring

Grandma to our house for all Holidays and to stay with us

if she didn’t feel very well.

***

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 you pet our

Neighbor’s dog with all the love an animal

deserves because they also have feelings.

***

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 how

much you loved and respected family and how close you were

to your aunts, uncles and cousins and other family members.

***

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. ‘

***

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend) influences the life of a child.

So live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

***

Leave the rest to God.
