时间:2014-07-12 14:27 作者:泛扬英语 点击: 151 次

       A Hua from Fukuoka County started to get up at six every morning to cook breakfast in the kitchen at age of 5.

       福冈县福冈市的小女孩阿花从五岁开始,每天就站在厨房里做早餐。
       She had busy daily routines. In the morning, she needed to wash her face, brush her teeth, feed the dog, take a walk, wash her hands, make some Miso soup, eat breakfast, play the piano, use the toilet and go to the kindergarten. After she got home, she had to hang the washing out, fold clothes, wash the basin, clean house, tidy the wardrobe and pack her own clothes… Sometimes, when her dad got home late, she would cook dinner for him.
       阿花的早晨是忙碌的。她要洗脸、刷牙、喂狗狗、散步、洗手、做酱汤、吃早饭、弹钢琴、上厕所、去保育园。回家后,还要晒衣服、叠衣服、刷澡盆、打扫、整理衣柜……有时候爸爸晚回家,阿花还会给爸爸做晚饭。
       Daughters are such sweet things to their parents! But how come such a little girl had to do so many chores? The story dates back to 2001.
       女儿是父母贴心小棉袄,真是一点都没错呢!可是,这么小的孩子。为什么要做这么多家务呢?这个故事要从2001年开始讲起。
       In the summer of 2001, the girl’s father Shingo and mother Chieko got married. Chieko was suffering from breast cancer at that time. After the painful treatment, she got cured and then pregnant with a baby girl miraculously. The precious baby girl brought their family endless happiness. “To have a baby girl proves my living in this world.” Chieko said, “I consider ger more important than myself. She is my precious baby.”
       2001年夏天,阿花的爸爸信吾和妈妈千惠走进了结婚的礼堂。而千惠,是一位身患乳腺癌的新娘。在痛苦的治疗之后,她治愈了癌症,还奇迹般地怀孕了!这个珍贵的小生命,就是阿花。跟每一个迎来新生命的家庭一样,阿花的到来,给小夫妻带来无限欢乐。“能和女儿相遇,证明我在这个世上活过。”千惠说,“这个比自己还重要的孩子,是我的人生至宝。”
       However, happy days never last forever. Cancer re-emerged when her baby was only nine month old. In order to cure the disease and make the baby grow up healthily, their family started to keep early hours.
       然而,幸福宁静的生活总是短暂的。阿花九个月的时候,千惠的癌症复发了。为了治病,也为了阿花的健康成长,千惠一家开始了早睡早起的生活。
       As the time went by, the baby became such a sensible girl. Chieko started to think what was the most important thing she needed to teach her daughter. She said to her, “Baby, cooking is essentially related to our living so I need to teach you how to cook and how to do the house chores. Study is less important. I only want you to have a health body and can live by yourself. No matter where you go and what you do in do in the future, you can live a good life.”
        阿花一天天地长大‘懂事。千惠开始思考,教孩子什么东西最重要?她对女儿说:“阿花,做饭这件事与生存息息相关,我要教会你如何拿菜刀,如何做家务。学习可以放在第二位,只要身体健康,能够自食其力,将来无论走到哪里、做什么,都能活下去。”
       Chieko said, “ I let her do everything she is capable of, so that one day if I were gone, she wouldn’t be seriously affected. If she takes off her clothes without folding it, I would pass it back to her and ask her to fold it herself. I don’t help her to prepare for kindergarten. And I always ask her to help with the house chores. I hope my daughter could survive even if she were alone.”
       千惠说:“只要是阿花力所能及的,我都让她自己来,这样有一天我不在也没关系。衣服翻着脱下来,我就翻着还给她,让她自己整理好。去保育园前的准备工作,我丝毫不帮忙,家务活也尽可能让她打下手。我希望女儿一个人也能顽强而茁壮地活下去。”
       Chieko started to teach her daughter to cook before the latter turned four. Although it was a little bit early for the young girl, Chieko felt it necessary. She thought that a kid who could cook would survive wherever he/she may go.
       千惠在女儿四岁生日的时候,开始有了一点点教女儿做菜的想法,虽然对于四岁的阿花来说,这一切还有点早,但是千惠觉得有这个必要。她认为,会做饭的孩子,走到哪里都能活下去。
       In 2008, Chieko passed away, leaving her 5-year-old daughter and her husband behind.
       2008年,千惠走了,留下了五岁的女儿和丈夫。
       Now, the girl is eleven years old.
       如今,阿花已经长大了。
       She said, “Mom, I want to tell you something. I can cook all the hentoos by myself! I never speak ill of others and I never forget to smile because you taught me to. However hard life may be, I believe I can make it. I don’t cry anymore.”
       阿花说:“妈妈,有件事我想告诉你—所有的便当我都会自己做了!不说别人的坏话,不忘记微笑,这些都是妈妈教我的。虽然我也会觉得好难啊,不过车道山前必有路,阿花已经不哭了。
