When You Thought I Was Not Looking - As Parents

“When You Thought I Was Not Looking”

As Parents, we often become so absorbed in day-to-day activities that we forget little eyes are watching and little ears are listening.  I offer this writing as an encouragement that the simple, often mundane activities of life can influence a young life forever.  Take time for the small things!

When you thought I wasn’t looking, you held moms hand as you prayed over the supper meal, and I knew love was in the home.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw tears come to your eyes, and I learn that sometimes things hurts, but that it is ok for men to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking you fixed my bike and picked up out of the road, and I learn I should be responsible.

When you thought I wasn’t looking you peeped in the door at night to see if I was alright, and I knew daddy cared.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I looked!  I want to say thanks for all those things you did when you thought I wasn’t looking.   

Dedicated to my Dad Buster McCulley and Debra’s late Dad Jimmy Carrick
