WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING (PART 1)

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING

"A message every adult should read because ch
ildren 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.

They're watching every minute!! I read a book to my granddaughter last week (twice through) and then the next time I looked she was reading and putting emphasis on words as I had done. Too cute. They are watching.
