    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 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, cousin, teacher, nurse, friend) ​
    influences the life of a child.

    How will you touch the life of someone today?

    I couldn't agree more! We tend to forget those little eyes are on us when we least expect it. Thank you for posting this reminder.
