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.
I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to
be kind to animals.
I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that
little things can be the special things in life.
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.
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.
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.
I felt you kiss me good night and I felt loved and safe.
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.
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.
I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes
things hurt, but it’s all right to cry.
I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything I could be.
I watched you, and I learned most of life’s lessons I need to
know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.
I looked at you and wanted to say, “Thanks for all the things I
saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.”
Mothers you are a light and influence on your children. Bring your children to church with you on Sunday, 2pm and Thursday, 7pm. WE LOVE YOU!
