This is so Powerful and Very True!

14 Jan

My mom-in-law sent this to my email today and it really got to me, it is so true and most of the time we, as parents we don’ t even think about how everything we do has such a major effect on shaping our children on a daily basis, this is very powerful so I thought I would share it with all of you.

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN’T LOOKING

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 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. 

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.’ 

 
LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT . 

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend) influence the life of a child.
