Mom’s POWERFUL Poem Hit Me Hard!

January 25, 2015 Stories

Do you ever feel like people don’t notice you? Does it seem sometimes like people don’t even see what you do? I know sometimes I’ve felt that way before.

So when I saw this quote, it really hit me like a ton of bricks!

“Be the Mom you want them to remember.”

It reminded me of the poem, “When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking,” by Mary Rita Schilke Korzan:

Read on and share with someone who needs to know how important she is!

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You hung my first painting on the refrigerator

And I wanted to paint another.

 

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You fed a stray cat

And I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You baked a birthday cake just for me

And I knew that little things were special things.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You said a prayer

And I believed there was a God that I could always talk to.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You kissed me good-night

And I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

I saw tears come from your eyes

And I learned that sometimes things hurt -

But that it’s alright to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You smiled

And it made me want to look that pretty too.

When you thought I wasn’t looking

You cared

And I wanted to be everything I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking – I looked…

And wanted to say thanks

For all those things you did

When you thought I wasn’t looking.

What a touching reminder this is that all the little things we do in our every day lives really MATTER to someone. We never know who may be watching and learning from US (or when!) How we handle the simple things in life may be shaping the lives of those around us. ☺
