When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

Written by a former child:

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 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 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 it's alright 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 or friend) influences the life of a child. 

How will you touch the life of someone today?
