为母亲祈祷

文章来源:网友推荐    作者:


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. 


如今我不再年轻,一些朋友的母亲已经去世。我曾听这些子女们说过,他们从没有向母亲充分表达过他们的感激之情,而待到要告诉时为时已晚了。 


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 what an extraordinary person she is. How sad that I am unable to speak these words in her presence, but they flow easily from my pen. 


幸运的是,我亲爱的母亲依然健在。我对她的感情与日俱增。母亲没有变,而我却变了。随着年岁的增长,我越来越懂事了,我认识道她是个非常了不起的人。这些话在她面前我难以启齿,但在笔下却可以轻易地写出来,这令我感到多么难过。

How does a daughter begin to thank her mother for 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 when a daughter realizes her mother really is? 


一个女儿该怎样开口感谢她的母亲所给予的生命?感谢她在抚养孩子时所付出的爱、耐心以及无私的辛勤劳动?感谢她跟在蹒跚学步的孩子身后奔跑,对情绪不定的少女的理解,以及对一个自以为是的大学生的宽容?感谢她等待女儿认识到她真实一位好母亲的这一天? 


How does a grown woman thank for a mother for continuing to be a mother? For being ready with 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 essentially herself—loving, thoughtful, patient, and forgiving? 


一个成年女子该怎样感谢母亲依然如故的角色?感谢在被问到时她会及时提供良言,而在不需要时她会保持沉默?感谢她没有说:“我告诉过你,”而她本来可以说上许多次?感谢她始终不变的爱心、体贴周到、耐心与宽容厚道?

I don’t know how, dear God, except to bless her as richly as she deserves and to help me live up 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 mine. 


我不知道该怎样来表达,亲爱的上帝,除了请求你好好地保佑她——那时她该得到的——并帮助我朝她作出的榜样看齐。我祈愿在孩子的眼里我会如同母亲在我眼里一般好。
