一个成年母亲对自己母亲的祈祷,写给上帝的一封信。

                      周思政

 

 

Dear God,

 

 

Now that I am no longer young, I have friends whose mothers have passed away. I have heard these sons and daughters say they never fully appreciated their mothers until it was too late to tell them.

 

I am blessed with the dear mother who is still alive. I appreciate her more each day. My mother does not change, but I do. As I grow older and wiser, I realize          an extraordinary person she is. How sad         I am unable to speak these words        her presence, but they flow easily from my pen.

 

How does a daughter begin to thank her mother       life itself? For the love, patience and just plain hard work that go into raising a child? For running after a toddler, for understanding a moody teenager, for tolerating a college student who knows everything? For waiting for the

day        a daughter realizes her mother really is?

 

How does a       (grow) woman thank for a mother for continuing to be a mother? For being ready         advice(when asked ) or remaining silent when it is most appreciated? For not saying:”I told you so”, when she could have uttered these words dozens of times? For

being          (essential) herself—loving, thoughtful, patient, and         (forgive)?

 

I don’t know how, dear God, except to bless her as richly as she deserves and to help me live   to the example she has set. I pray that I will look as good in the eyes of my children as my mother looks in      (I).

 

A daughter
