"I See It All"

I received this email and thought about family time during the Easter and Passover celebrations. How appropriate! 

“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 the little things can be the special things in life.

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 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.

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 that I could be.

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.

 How will you touch the life of someone today?

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.”

  1. How true! Be careful what you say but be more careful of what you do. Where did you get this photo? I love it!

  2. The photo was in the email. He is adorable! We’ve all seen that look on our little ones 🙂
