10-Do This for Your Children
A message every adult should read, because children are watching you, and doing as you do, not as you say, so read this.

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 the life of others.  

...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 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 also 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 alright to cry.  I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or friend) influences the life of a child. How will you touch the life of someone today?
