WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN’T LOOKING

When you thought I wasn’t looking, by a Child

A message every parent should read, because your 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 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 little things can be the special things in life.

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

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 felt you kiss me good night and I felt
loved and safe.

When you though 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 its 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 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 or friend – influence the life of a child.
