妈妈的信

最亲爱的小宝贝恩恩, 你好!

“今早”的课上得怎样? 很好!对吗?! “今早”妈妈动手术,住院至少住上五六天,恩恩在家里会自己照顾自己吗?恩恩一定会的,对吗?恩恩是一个非常懂事的小女孩。妈妈想,恩恩一定不止会照顾好 自己,也还会帮爸爸照顾才两岁半的俊俊弟弟,对不?恩恩是个好孩子!好姐姐!一定不会让爸爸辛苦的。妈妈说得对吗?

恩,妈妈在不同的两个时候,和恩恩一起去两个不同的 Guardian 药店,那里正好有卖 Barbie 的衣服。妈妈乘恩恩没看到时,赶快去买了 Barbie 的衣服。一套是 “Red Riding Hood”,另一套是恩恩最喜欢的新娘衣。高兴吗?等妈妈储够了钱,再买别的,好不好?

恩,你在做什么?是不是在跳舞?扮姑娘?看故事书?看录影带?做功课?…[不,我在看亲爱的妈妈的信!]小坏蛋!小可爱, 你以前还更小的时候就会这样捉弄爸爸了。电话里亲爱的爸爸问:[恩,你在做什么?]恩说:[打电话 lor!]看你,好淘气!

好啦,不再说啦。妈妈希望恩恩越来越聪明。让我们一起再接再厉,把更多的“好工夫”学到手,好吗?让我们手携手,共进步。我们一定要做伟大的主的好 孩子。恩恩有信心吗?在主的帮助下,我们一定会成功的。到那时,我们每时每刻都会快乐似神仙。主啊!请您指引我们,教导我们,帮助我们,保佑我们。原谅我 们的一切过错吧主耶苏。我们非常谢谢您。 恩恩,亲爱的,别忘记天天祷告啊!

嗯,末!妈妈亲亲你宝贝。

妈祝你
姐弟两相亲相爱!
健康可爱!
聪明伶俐!
也愿主永远保佑恩恩!

永远永远爱着恩恩的妈妈

This is a letter my mom wrote the night before a major surgery back in 1985. I was 6-years old. I don’t remember it, but I came across it the other day among my childhood stuff. Couldn’t help tearing as I read it, imagining what was in my mom’s heart as she wrote it. She wrote a letter each to my dad and John (who was only 2-yrs old then) too. Wonder what John’s says… :)

Mom’s just arrived in L.A. Grandma’s still in the operating theatre. Mom left in such an unexpected rush yesterday, we didn’t even have time for a proper good-bye at the airport. And she doesn’t know how long she’ll be in L.A. I’m so glad that we’d been spending so much time together in the last couple of weeks, and especially for the Indonesia trip. July 31st (the day I fly back to N. America) isn’t that very far away…
