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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.'
