Something to Ponder

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

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'



LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT . Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt uncle, teacher, friend) influences the life of a child.



How will you touch the life of someone today?

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.

    This is so true,

    Kids catch on so fast.
    In my Sunday School Class, the very ones that I think never hear a thing, are the very ones who can answer all my question.

    Thank you so much,
    Love it
