Mother nagging memory, “there are good things to fill themselves, for othersnamed.” she did good things, sent village West. There are good things toshare to everyone taste. This is good, kind and willing. Mother always said,”suffer who often eat small fish is cheap”. ” Dinner you mouth drops shortthat they drop short hand. “my mother’s advice, this life is not forgotten,always keep in mind, also passed on.
Mother was a kind and grateful people. Often tell us: “don’t forget thepeople who helped us, and we are today is never without their help.” Don’tforget your uncle Wei, when we came from inside Shanhaiguan, seven people in the family got off the train to rock, uncle Wei you hire a coach took usback to the station have been sent home, halfway, and we get two meals. ”
In my childhood mind, Thanksgiving two words was rooted in the heart. Wewant to thanks all who treat themselves, respect, gratitude and will feelbetter in life. “Gratitude, grace and goodness”.
Everyone has a good heart, goodness is the smile of the soul, kindness isbeing grateful for life. Life on the road has a kind heart, life experience,life will be sunny.
From what I can remember the mother’s body has been bad, rolling, moaning atthe Kang. I immediately went to the village health clinic doctor hometreatment for the mother. Village clinic doctors treat your mother came tomy house, and it is common. Learn from an early age for mothers who, fry thepills I would first try has become a habit.
Around 1959, the province sent down “rightists” road-building team camped inour village. An engineer in the team heard that my mother is sick, she cameto my mother’s pulse diagnosis and treatment. After eating his prescriptionand gradually get better. Through this Exchange, mother about his lover to come and stay, they become dry between sisters. I have one aunt. Mother’ssister Oh, I see, with school President Xu lover, the old House, XI Tun Tunand old at home, and old houses in the County, as well as in the old Yangfamily in-laws.
Cause now I realized the mother far from home, homesick feelings of missingloved ones, with nominal kinship to fill to appease their hearts.
Between mothers and sisters to know that feeling well, and the sisters,frequent in life, help and love each other, with the warmth of a family oflove.
Through road-building engineers and electrical engineers, but also renownedChinese medicine practitioners. His wife is Chinese, but also landscape andflower painter. They are really talented family.
Brother is 15 years old suffering from diseases of the small, my aunt stayedto the provincial capital, cured and well taken care of. Says, “to the EastPlaza to play every day, and pocket money.” clothes from the foot to the topand came back to bring our family back many clothes wow! This is my mother’ssister Mu Guizhen na!
Mother often will attack, came home from school saw her mother lying on thebed, know disease again. I knew the first thing the doctor to heal his mother, the second thing to do the housework. Because mothers are oftensick, but learned a lot of housework. Learned during childhood chores such as cooking, pancake, and feeding.
Mother tells of the anguish of the past life, “my illness is confined, yoursister for three days, in order to hide from the war, wading through waist-deep water, under disease”.
Mother is busy every day.
Throughout the seasons are busy not to finish her work. Spring Hill to digwild vegetables, summer fields have a mother figure, shoulder meal served inthe mountain-side fields, working for family lunch. Is also collected in thefall season • can working mothers, and shanzhen, picking up mushrooms, alsopicked up the dealer in the fields. Cold in the winter, mothers work inExchange for a warm guy.
She worked during the day and evening with his arrangement. Lighted kerosene lamp by sewing clothes, rope rubbing on thigh, rubbing red thigh. Stitch soles, series covers Lotus, also strings chilli need to rope! Whenever Iwake up a sleep time, the mother was busy. Night time all wear unlined, cotton-padded clothes for the whole family. Family are presentable andcomfortable. Sewing wear cotton gloves on your hands warm in the heart.Working mother with her warm our body, is very proud in front of others.
In the 80 ‘s, slightly raise standard of living.
I have married and had children, mothers feel brilliant. Days of livingtogether, I wash my face every day the water-side to my mother, hot hot hot wine, drink both mother and son talked about the joy of living and the hardlife of the mother in the past. Mother’s nagging, “looking back have no homefor 36 years.”
Mother of her tiny body into the age of 60, reached the age very homesick!
In the spring of 1981, my sister brought her mother home my hometownNanjing, Zhenjiang, 36 contained. Sisters, together again, laughing, talking about life’s ups and downs.
Recall childhood memories. Posing as a permanent memory.
Parents ‘ combined era was during the Japanese aggression, at the fleeingcrowd together. At the time, always had a little more life. In my mind, theyare always arguing and fighting. Reasons mostly because of the arguing andfighting over her work. Fathers disciplining a child to work, children,mothers take their children, so I packed a confrontation.
Fathers work in haste.
My second sister 13 years old that winter, followed his father to Lirasledge picking up firewood, it’s getting late, lost on the way back. Fathersquarreled in the evening. The next day, still dark sister wearing barefootboots braved the treading snow to find the missing tools, snow, where tofind wow! She came back and had a bad attack of typhoid fever (heavy cold) aTerminal one. At that time doctors and medicines, unable to cure herillness, sister 13 years old!
Mother because she’s gone, cried for more than 10 years!
Mother, life is hard, he didn’t take any delicacies, not through a decentclothes. Work every day he put his energies are scattered in the family,spilled on us. Her life was torn lives with the disease. Her life and thefather emotionally, are suffering in many cases, did not taste like theother couples marital harmony and sweet.
How mother’s life, of course, cannot be said of the great, but ordinary. Butthink about Chinese women, especially mothers age women, mothers, did notenjoy the beautiful day today, most of this! Their lives unknown, ignoredlike the roadside grass. But it can be seen from their body diligence,kindness, gratitude, and the virtues of thrift, hard work.
