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 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 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, you fixed my pond so it would be great!

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 l
ooking!

Its funny how we know people care...its not by what they say, but by what they do without saying. My honey makes my tea every morning for me, with 2 lumps of sugar and just the right amount of milk. We have breakfast together everyday, no matter how late he or I are going to be for work. He always kisses me before bed, even though he thinks I am sleeping (sometimes I pretend to keep sleeping). Until you make an effort to really think about it, its these little things that people do for you (no matter how routinedthey are), that show how much they care. At the same time, these acts cannot be one sided. Love is a reciprocating thing. I wonder what he would consider my acts of love to him?!?!?
