When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

By a Child

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 leaarned that 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 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 felt you kiss me good night, 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 didn’t feel good, and I learned that I would have to be resopnsible 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, uncle, aunt or friend, influence the life of a child.

It's true, children do pick up on little things that we might not even give a second thought to.

Jazaakallah for sharing.
