"When You Thought I Wasn't Looking"
- written by a former child

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 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."
We should always leave our loved ones with loving words because
we never know if it will be the last time we get to see them.
