When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and immediately I 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 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. 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 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.'"
