母爱无价 Cost of Love

One night when my wife was preparing dinner, our little son took a piece of paper to her which read:

一天晚上,妻子在厨房准备晚餐的时候,我们的小儿子拿着一张纸走向他母亲。上面写道:
For washing the car……………………$5.00

For making my own bed this week……………………$1.00

本周整理自己的房间……………………1 美元

Going to the provision shop……………………$0.50

为你去商店……………………0.5 美元

And for sweeping the common corridor……………………$2.00

打扫通道……………………2 美元

Total……………………$14.75

总计……………………14.75 美元

His mother looked at him standing there expecting payment. I could see a thousand memories flashed through her mind. So she picked up the pen and turned the paper over. This is what she wrote:

他母亲看着儿子满怀希望地站在那儿等着拿钱。我能想象她脑子里翻腾着记忆的浪花。她拿起钢笔把儿子写过的纸翻过来。她在上面是这样写的:

For 9 months I carried you, growing inside me……………………No Charge

你待在我的腹中,我怀胎九个月……………………免费

For the nights I sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you……………………No Charge

我陪伴着你,为你求医、为你祈祷的那些晚上……………………免费

For the toys, food and clothes and wiping your nose……………………No Charge

为你准备玩具、食物、衣服甚至为你擦鼻涕……………………免费

When you add it all up, the full cost of my love……………………No Charge

你把以上所有的累加起来,我为你付出的全部的爱……………………免费

Well, when he finished reading, he had great big tears in his eyes. He looked at his mother and said, “Mummy, I love you.” Then he took the pen and in great big letters wrote on the “bill”: All paid.

儿子读完母亲写的这些,双眼含着豆大的泪花,看着妈妈说:“妈妈,我爱你。”他拿出钢笔在他的“账单”上用很大的字写道:全部付清。
