“WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN’T LOOKING”

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator. I
immediately wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you feed a stray cat. 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. I learned that little
things can be the special things in life.

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

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make a meal & take it to a neighbor who was sick. 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 & money to help people who had
little or nothing. 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. I felt loved & safe.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you take care of our house & everyone in it. 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. I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up, too.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw tears come from your eyes. 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. So 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 & productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I looked at you & wanted to say, “‘Thanks for all the things I
saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.’”

Each of us… influence the life of a child. You might be amazed by what they’ll learn!
