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 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 give of

your time and money to help people who had nothing,

and I 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 I learned w e 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.'


I AM SENDING THIS TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW

WHO DO
SO MUCH FOR OTHERS,
BUT THINK THAT NO ONE EVER SEES.


LITTLE EYES SEE A
LOT.

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, & friend)

influences the life of a child.


How will you touch the life of someone today? Just by

se nding this to someone else, you will probably make

them at least think about their influence on others.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.


Leave the rest to God.
