Did you know that someone looks up to you? And you may never know who it is? Or why? I remind my kids of this all the time, that so-and-so looks up to you, and so you have to act in a way that so-and-so should model....it depends on which kid I'm lecturing, but I'm sure you get the idea. :) Sometimes, though, I guess we all need to be reminded, and not in a lecture-y type way, even, that someone looks up to us. It may not be the expected person, like the younger brother or sister....or it could be. BUT....it could also be the person that sees you coming to their line to check out, and knows that you are a habitual smiler, or a Tootsie-Roll-Giver (love you, Grampy)...or it could be someone who is a complete stranger, but sees you do something that makes them think they want to be like that....you just never know. I suppose if not for any other reason, then for that one, we should always act in a way (even when we think no one is paying attention, or perhaps most espececially then) that we would want someone to model after us, and in a way that would better the world we live in.
After all, you just never know who might be looking up ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ to you. :)
