Ok fine

tell me what you think?????

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 t hought 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.

    of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
    to take care of what we are given.

    from your eyes, and I learned th a t sometimes things
    hurt, but it's all right to cry.

    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.

    wanted to say,'Thanks for all the things I saw when
    you thought I wasn't looking.'
