When You Thought I Wasn't Looking...

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang myfirst painting on the refrigerator, and I immediatelywanted to paint another one.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed astray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kindto animals.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make myfavorite cake for me, and I learned that the littlethings can be the special things in life.When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say aprayer, and I knew that there is a God I could alwaystalk to, and I learned to trust in Him.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make ameal and take it to a friend who was sick, and Ilearned that we all have to help take care of eachother.When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give ofyour time and money to help people who had nothing,and I learned that those who have something shouldgive to those who don't.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take careof our house and everyone in it, and I learned we haveto take care of what we are given.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how youhandled your responsibilities, even when you didn'tfeel good, and I learned that I would have to beresponsible when I grow up.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears comefrom your eyes, and I learned that sometimes thingshurt, but it's all right to cry.When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that youcared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most oflife's lessons that I need to know to be a good andproductive person when I grow up.When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you andwanted to say,"Thanks for all the things I saw whenyou thought I wasn't looking."~Anonymous
