This is a message every adult should read because children are watching you and doing 'as you do', not as you say.  
"When You Thought I Wasn't Looking"  
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 heard you say a prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.  
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 other.  
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 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'  
 
I am sending this to all of the people I know, who do so much for others, but think no one ever sees. Little eyes see a lot.  
 
Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend) influences the life of a child.  
How will you touch the life of someone today? Just by sending this,  you will probably make them at least think about their influence on others. 
Live simply. 
Love generously.  
Care deeply.  
Speak kindly.  
Leave the rest to God.
 
 
 
 
Politics, it seems to me, for all too long has been concerned with right or left, instead of right or wrong.  
 
Weak people revenge, Strong people forgive, Intelligent people ignore. 
 
Imagine how strong our country could be if congress spent their days working for the people who elected them instead of the people who buy them. 
 
I don't care how attractrive you think you look, if you have an ugly heart,  you're ugly
 
Have a lovely day!  
 
 
 
 
May God bless everyone and keep us safe from harm.

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple was involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.  
While waiting they began to wonder; Could they possibly get married in Heaven?  
When St. Peter arrived they asked him if they could get married in Heaven. St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out," and he left. The couple sat and waited for an answer.... For a couple of months.  
While they waited, they discussed the pros and cons. If they were allowed to get married in Heaven, should they get married, what with the eternal aspectof it all? "What if it doesn't work? Are we stuck in Heaven together forever?"  
Another month passed. St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "You can get married in Heaven.""Great!" said the couple. "But we were just wondering; what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" 
St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard on the ground.  
What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple.  
"Oh, Come On!" St. Peter shouted. "It took me 3 months to find a priest up here! Do you have "any" idea how long it'll take to find a lawyer?"
 
Please say a prayer for 
President Trump, Texas, and 
Florida. "God wants to hear our prayers."I feel he is quite angry with many of the citizens of this country. Who could blame him?
