5 Simple Gestures: Express Love to Family

Express Love to Family

别来无恙啊!希望在疫情间你过得健健康康平平安安!学校假期期间,大家也迎来更多与家人相处的时光。今天让我来与你谈谈亲情吧!

首先,我有个很重要的问题。亲情对你来说到底包含着什么意义?它对你来说到底意味着什么?

Let’s talk about something meaningful today. Firstly, what is family to you? 

对我而言,亲人如同大树一般,而我们如同小草。它永远为我们遮风挡雨,让我们安全的成长。其实,表达对亲人的关爱不一定要用买贵重礼物给亲人,甚至连花钱都不用。

To me, family resembles a tree. It protects us from all sorts of problems and are often the ones whom we can come back to when we feel down, or are in need of a favour. Showing your love to family and loved ones doesn’t mean purchasing expensive gifts. In fact, you do not even need to spend money. 

Here are 5 small, yet simple gestures for you to try now! 

#1 问好 Greetings

在这里,我有一个问题想问问大家。早上起床时,你会对父母微笑问好吗?我猜… …没有吧?其实,你知道吗,身为儿女的我们,在早晨对父母微笑问好是最基本的礼仪。这不仅仅代表着对父母的尊重,还能让他们的一天充满着温暖。

Here, I have a question for everyone. Do you smile and say “Good Morning” to your parents every morning? Let me guess, the answer is … … no? 

Did you know? Smiling and greeting your parents in the morning is a simple formality that we should all follow. It not only shows your respect towards them, but also brightens up their day! 

如果你今天还没对父母问好,快去对他们微笑,并说一声“早安”吧!

Well? What are you waiting for? If you haven’t greeted your parents today, do it now!
Better late than never. 😉

#2 早餐 Breakfast

现在我想要请你闭上眼睛,幻想你未来孩子为你们准备早餐。想想一起来就闻到幸福的味道。是不是很好啊?早点起来,为父母准备早餐不是一件很难的事。毕竟,早餐是最重要的一餐。

Imagine you waking up in the future to your children preparing breakfast for you. How would you feel? Blissful, I believe so. Waking up early to prepare breakfast isn’t the hardest thing to do. Besides, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

对你们而言,这样做可能没意义,甚至还会嫌麻烦。可是,你知道吗?你所做的事,无论大小,都被父母看在眼里。这样一餐,不仅仅能让他们在接下来的一天有活力,还能让他们觉得欣慰,觉得孩子已经长大成熟了。

To you, this may be meaningless, or even troublesome. But I must tell you, whatever you do, no matter how big or small, your parents notice it. One simple meal like this gives them energy throughout the day and even lets them feel touched that their child has grown up and matured.

当然啦,这样的举动不限于做早餐。你可以做午餐、晚餐、或小点心、甜品。

Of course, this is not limited to breakfast. You may choose to make lunch, dinner or even desserts for your parents. Making a meal is a great way to express your love to family members!

#3 家务 Chores

Household Chores with Family

我知道,对你来说做家务可能是个又苦又难的事。可是,相比起父母对你的养育之恩,区区几件家务应该没什么大不了的。

I know that to you, doing chores may be a tiresome and tough task. However, compared to your parents bringing you up, I’m pretty sure a few chores aren’t that difficult. 

父母在外赚钱养家,个个都不容易。身为儿女的我们,这些小小的举动或许能帮父母减轻负担。这样一来,他们从工作回来后,就能休息,不必担心家里事务繁忙。

Our parents are often working to raise the family. Each and every of them work very hard and it’s not easy to bring food to the table. Little things like doing chores can help with their burden, making it easier for them.

Not only will it help your parents, but they will also feel contented and happy. 

#4 周末出行 Weekend Trip

Love to Family (Outing)

现在的周末你很少与父母出去吧。大多数都是在家打游戏,玩手机,偶尔做一下功课吧。其实,周末就是用来给你和亲人放松,并出去走走。这样不但能让你们解压,还能培养感情,让彼此更深厚了解对方。

You probably don’t go out with your parents all that much on weekends. However, weekends are meant for you to relax, go out with your parents, take a breather. Basically, do something meaningful with your family. 

你可能会觉得,出去怎样能算上表达关爱。让我来告诉你,究竟怎样表达关爱。当你和父母出门在外时,用心去观察父母喜欢吃什么,喜欢买什么。之后,当你与父母下次出门时,你就能在点餐时帮父母点,还能有信心地告诉他们“爸妈,这是您喜欢吃的!”

You may feel that going out on a weekend is not showing love to your parents, or that it’s just a simple routine. Well, let me tell you how you can express your love to them while outside. When you are out with your parents, take into account every little detail, such as what they like to eat or what they like to buy. Then, on your next weekend, while ordering food for lunch, you can order for them and tell them it’s what they like!

Going out on a weekend isn’t just having fun and having a meal together. It is also about accompanying your parents.

# 手写卡片 Thank You Card

Thank you my Family

听起来很老土吧?其实,用心去做的东西,没有一样是老土的。现代生活太过繁忙,往往我们都忽略了对身边的亲人说声感恩、谢谢。

 Sounds very old school right? Actually, I believe that as long as you put your heart to it and it is sincere, nothing is too old school. With the modern living standards being so high, and us moving at such a fast pace, we often forget to slow down and say thank you to the ones around us. 

花一点时间,写几句感谢的话。父母从我们出生那一刻,就在身边了。即便你有再好的朋友,再坏的家庭环境,我相信每当我们跌倒时,第一个扶我们起来的是父母。有道是“父恩比山高,母恩比海深”。我们都应该报答父母对我们的养育之恩。

Take a bit of time now, write a few lines for your parents and show your love to family. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but it has to be sincere. From when you could first open your eyes, your parents were already beside you. I believe that no one is able to be a better person in your life than your own parents. 

If you have no idea on how to create a card or need some inspirations, I’ll leave a video below that you can watch! Of course, you can use your originality. 

读一读,没伤害!

我想请你回忆一下。在你生病时,是谁喂你吃药,熬夜照顾你。当你跌倒时,是谁扶你起来,替你服药。你从小到大,吃的饭菜,都是谁煮的。我相信你的心中已有答案。我承认,不是每个家庭都是美好的,都是和睦的。但是,我相信,没有一个父母是不爱自己的亲生骨肉。他们只是不会表达而已。

在此,我想跟你说的是,珍惜身边的亲人。父母在你生下来的那一天就在身边,可是他们不能永远陪你走下去。

Cherish your loved ones, and don’t forget to take time off to accompany them and thank them. Remember to show your love to family members and let them know you care!

I hope you are able to thank your parents today!
See you next time 😀
