About my daughter (我的女儿)

2006-07-29 13:39



  Dear students,

  Many of you keep telling me that you have no time to write much to me because you are very tired and you have many quizzes and tests. I know and I understand the workload is heavy, especially for those really hard-working students who honestly do all the assignments by themselves and try their best to prepare for all the quizzes and tests. I know you are exhausted (extremely tired)。 I hope that you can have s sound sleep and have a nice dream when you are lying in bed.

  I was also very tired last night and also early this morning. I was so tired that I could not go on to write my STS. That is why I am doing it now. This morning I told you only a small part of a long story and now I want to tell you a little more. When my daughter was born, the nurse told me that there was a red birth-mark on her forehead. Normally, a parent is not happy when he/she hears that. But I felt happy about that. It was strange. I did not know why. The mark was something like a “V”-shaped figure. It did not make much sense. When she was about one or two months old, we took a picture of her. When my wife and I saw the photo, we both saw something

  “different”on her forehead. We saw the same thing. We were shocked (very surprised)。 I made a lot of dreams about that thing before she was born. At that time, I felt the birth-mark on my daughter's forehead was very meaningful. I told you to find out what It is but you could not. I won't tell you what it is. If you are interested, you may come and try again.

  I remember that when my daughter was born, all our family members believed  that it was a miracle. It was because for some reason they thought my wife could not give birth to the baby by herself (without having an operation)。 But my wife did it herself. She had been labouring (much pain during that) for eleven hours before giving birth to my daughter. I stood by her bed from beginning to end, holding her hand and praying. I did not eat or drink anything and I did not even go to the toilet. After eleven hours, I was extremely tired and I said to God, in a weak voice, 'I need a miracle.’Right after that the good news came-she made it. I went back home at about two or three o'clock early in the morning to have a little sleep before going to school for work. As I was travelling on a bus to school later that morning, I recalled everything that took place the night before. I said to myself, “It was too painful for her (my wife) to give birth to this daughter”。 Then tears started to roll down my face. I could not help it (couldn't stop it)。 Love your parents, my dear. Do you hear me?
