~Wasn't Looking~


When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and 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 sick friend
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 felt you kiss me goodnight
and I felt loved and safe.

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 did not feel good, and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grew up.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come to your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it is 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".
