When you thought i wasnt looking.....

Had to share this beautiful piece from Charli's blog:

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING
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 astray 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 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 I looked at you and
wanted to say,'Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn't looking.

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend)influences the life of a child.How will you touch the life of someone today? Just bysharing this with someone else, you will probably makethem at least think about their influence on others.Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.Speak kindly.Leave the rest to God

That is so great, and so true. Our kids watch and copy every little thing we do, so we must be careful!
