When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

Date: 3/6/2006

Part 2 of 3 (Written by a former child)

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 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.

Little Eyes See A Lot

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or friend) influence the life of a child. How will you touch the life of someone today? Just by sending this to someone else, you will probably make them at least think about their influence

on others.
