Be the First to Give Her Gold
Be the first to give her gold
It is often easy for us to overlook the blessings we have in life. When I was little, I remember clinging to my parents before my first day at preschool, scared of having to leave their side. To distract me, Pa showed me a lunar coin he had bought for me when I was born.
Thinking it might be a chocolate coin, I bit into it only to discover that it was hard. Pa laughed and promised to buy me some real chocolates later. I immediately cheered up and smiled at him.
I’ll soon be setting off on my own path, going overseas to pursue my degree in Child Psychology. It is only now that I fully realise what the coin means, a blessing that I’ll treasure with me through life. While Pa and Ma won’t be by my side holding my hands when I’m abroad, the coin will be with me, a reminder of my family back home. They’ll always be there for me. After all, I’ll always be first place in their eyes.
当时老爸就想出一套哄我上学的办法。我记得他从裤袋中掏出一枚闪闪发亮的金币放在我眼前。一看到金币，我以为里边是包着巧克力的，于是马上从老爸手中夺过后便往嘴里塞。看着我贪吃的模样，爸爸乐得笑开了怀。 “傻孩子，这是你出生那年我特别购买的纪念币，是不能吃的。放学后爸爸再买巧克力给你吃.” 爸爸这一招果然奏效，它让我消除了对陌生环境的恐惧，也让我从此乖乖上学去了。
