(Written by a former child)
A message every adult should read, because children
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you

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 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

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 listening... 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.

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."

Wild Fact About Me Love Rocky Horror Picture Show!
My Philosophy You can't make people change through force, you have to set an example through your own behavior and attitudes.
What Gives Me Hope Sunrises, babies, birds, puppies, kittens, laughter, friends, family
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I don't know. I'd like to put foreign leaders in a room with each other until they work out their differences rather than sending young people to war. I'd like for people in leadership positions to have to experience living like the poor, the disabled, blacks, minorities so they can perhaps appreciate not only what they have, but what the others do not.
What/who changed my life and why So many. My son Mike (who passed away) changed my life in untold ways. My husband without who I wouldn't be able to live as I do. David. Jose. JFK. RFK. MLK.
Quotation He who exalts himself shall be humbled and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.

    There is still beauty in the darkness, look at night, for only then can you see the stars.

    Rosie Umstattd is a wonderful person, a valuable and worthy friend, and whatever little I may write about her is insufficient expression of her wonderful nature. Rosie is warm, courageous and kind.
