When You Thought I Wasn't Looking...Continued

A message every parent should read, because your children are watching and doing as you do, not as you say:

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight and I felt love 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 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 is alright to cry.  When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything I could be.  When you thought I wasn’t looking, I learned that most of life’s lessons that I need to know, is 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.”
