When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

Zig Ziglar on

We received a fascinating email message that I thought was so good I decided to share it with you and obtained permission from the author, Mary Rita Schilke Korzan:

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 goodnight, 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 all right 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. -- Mary Rita Schilke Korzan

Actually, you can be reasonably sure that whether you realize it or not, someone is looking, and whether it's friend or foe, when you live with integrity, you will have an impact on whomever is watching. Message: Live with integrity, and many people will have something to smile about!
