Mother’s Day 2022 | 母亲节 2022

大家别来无恙啊!2022年的母亲节即将到来,想问大家,你们准备好了吗?想必这个节日,我也应该不必多说了吧!母亲节的意义极大,是富有良善美意的。母亲一生都在”伺候“、担心我们,而身为子女,我们也应该报答母亲的养育之恩。每逢过节,都是由父母准备过节的事物,那么到了属于他们的节日,我们应该成为准备的那个人,让他们开开心心地过节。今天就不聊什么技巧或庆祝方式了,我就跟你们分享一下我家里的母亲节吧!

Hey everyone! Hope you’re doing fine. Mother’s Day 2022 is coming soon, are you prepared for it? I believe I need not explain much about this special occasion. It has an amazingly kind meaning to it. In other words, our mothers see to all our needs, and worry about us throughout their lives. As children, it’s only right for us to return the love and show appreciation for our upbringing. During almost every festivity, our parents are the ones who prepare the needed items. For a change, it’s our turn to let them enjoy their own occasion! I won’t be giving any tips and tricks, or ideas today though. It’s just going to be a simple sharing blog to thank all Mothers in the world!

Story Time | 故事时间

Jocelyn Chinese Tuition Blog Post (Mother's Day)

相信大家都还记得,小时候当我们生病、尿裤子还是打翻食物的时候,大多都是由母亲帮忙清理的。无论有多脏、多臭、多恶心、多辛苦,她们都毫无怨言地“照单全收”。小时候,我经常生病,几乎是每隔几个星期就生一次病。有一次,我发了高烧,几天都没睡好。尽管我再辛苦,我知道,我并没有像母亲那么辛苦。在我生病的期间,没睡好的人不仅是我,还有我的母亲。她几乎每隔一两个小时就会起床来看看我的情况,喂我吃药等。小时候我觉得因为是母亲,所以照顾我是理所当然的。如今,长大后回想,却是莫名的悲伤,母亲的爱竟然成了我眼中的理所当然。你们是不是都像我一样这么想呢?

Many of you probably remember the things that our mothers have done for us. For instance, when we were young, whenever we fell sick, wet our pants, spilled food and drinks, our mothers were always the ones to help us clean up. No matter how dirty, smelly, disgusting or hard it was, they’d do it without complaining. For me, I remember falling sick all the time when I was young, to the point where it was almost every other week. There was once, I had a high fever for a few days, which caused me not to sleep well. However, no matter how hard being sick was, it seemed small in front of how much more tough it was for my mother. She had to wake up and check my fever at midnight, and to feed me medicine. As a young child, I thought it was normal as she’s my mother, but looking back now, it’s quite harsh on her. I’m sure many of you are having the same thoughts right now!

对我而言,长大后的首要目的不是赚钱养家,而是报答父母的养育之恩。小时候的我们为母亲增添了不少麻烦。长大之后,就让我们帮她们分担一些负担吧。撇开辈分不说,母亲与我们一样,都是人。既然是人,我们又凭什么让她们受罪,而我们却在一旁享福呢?对吧!因此,我恳请大家在这特别的一天,让母亲大人好好休息。当然,这也不是说我们只有在母亲节才为母亲分担她们的辛苦,让她们休息哦。若平常我们能够帮忙分担一些家务、事物的话,我们也应该尽量帮忙她们。

To me, growing up doesn’t mean to earn money and have a family, but to repay our parents for our upbringing. As a child, we definitely gave our mothers loads of trouble, so once we’ve grown up, let us help them relieve some burden. Placing aside the fact that they are our mothers, they are humans like us. Since we’re all humans, it’s unfair of us to let them do all the hard work, and enjoy ourselves. Hence, may I urge you all, to give your mothers a good break during this day, and not disturb them! Of course, it doesn’t mean that because it’s not Mother’s Day, you don’t need to help them out. Instead, if you could just simply provide support in household chores and matters, it would help lighten their load significantly too.

Three Important Words | 三个很重要的字

Jocelyn Chinese Tuition Blog Post (Mother's Day)

说一句“我爱你”不是一件很难的事,但很可惜,在这匆忙的时代,它却成为了有些人一辈子都说不出口的话。在这里,请大家想想,你上一次对母亲说“我爱你”是什么时候呢?有些人可能很自豪地说:“昨天!”,可也有一部分的人应该会惭愧地说道:“不记得了”。 如果你是后者,不必自责,因为这应该是大部分人的回答。身为新加坡人,我们习惯性地通过动作表现“爱”,而极少人会通过口头表现自己对别人的爱。我知道这在日常生活中说出“我爱你”可能会造成一个尴尬的场面,可我还是想劝劝大家。趁这个母亲节,对母亲说一句“我爱你”(也记得对父亲说哦!)。我认识好几位朋友,年幼时就失去母亲,有些甚至没见过自己的亲生母亲。他们根本没有机会向自己的母亲说一句“我爱你”。因此,大家要珍惜与母亲的时光,毕竟岁月不饶人!

“I love you” actually isn’t hard to say at all to our family, but it’s a pity that in this busy era, it has become something that some people might never say in their lives. Here’s a simple question, when was the last time you told your mother “I love you”? Some of you may answer proudly “Yesterday!”, while some may be ashamed and answer “I can’t remember”. If you are one of the latter, don’t worry. It’s probably the majority of us. As Singaporeans, we’re used to showing our love through action, whilst very few of us do it through words. Personally, I know how awkward it is to say these words in our daily lives. However, I would still encourage you guys to use this Mother’s Day to say these three words (Do remember to say it to your father too!). I know of friends who have lost their mothers since young, or might not even know their biological mothers, which means even if they wanted to, they don’t get the chance to say it anymore. Hence, cherish your time with them, as time and tide waits for no man!

特别致谢:教师 | Special Thanks to Teachers

Jocelyn Chinese Tuition Blog Post (Mother's Day)

你们知道吗?其实我们不只有一位母亲,还有一位常常被我们忽略的“母亲”。准确地说,她不是我们亲生的“母亲”,可她们的付出就像是伟大的母亲。这就是我们校园中的女老师们。不知道大家有没有注意,许多女老师都会散发出母爱一般的感觉。我们常说学校是我们的“第二个家”,那自然而然,这个家里也会有“母亲”。这些老师们不仅为我们的作业操心,也为我们的个人发展操心。她们就像“母亲”一样,教我们知识,也教我们如何做人。因此,在这里也要特别感谢待我们如亲生骨肉的老师们!

Do you know? We actually have one more mother, one whom we forget about frequently. To be accurate, they aren’t our biological, real, parents, but the effort that they put in are akin to our parents. These are the female teachers in school. Not sure if you guys realised, many female teachers actually emit this motherly feeling. We always say “school is our second home”, so naturally, we have a “second mother”. These teachers worry for our school work, and even our personal well-being. They are like “mothers” who teach us knowledge and morals. As such, special thanks to all female teachers who treat us like your own children!

结语

结束之前,我想对大家说一些话。请你们务必记得,无论你的母亲曾经对你发过多大脾气i、对你破口大骂,她们都是为了你们好。如果觉得母亲不了解你,那你可以找一天跟她聊天。了解你之后,她自然会退一步,让你去做你想要做的事。但是切记,你也不可以得寸进尺。你也需要退几步原谅,理解你母亲的想法。记住,千万不要对她发火!你是母亲的亲生骨肉,没有一位母亲会希望伤害到自己的孩子。今天的博客也就到此结束了,我在下方留了一段话给天下的母亲,是母亲的可以自行阅读,是孩子的可以读给母亲听哦!我们下次再见,拜拜!

Before ending, I just have a few simple things to talk about. Please remember that no matter how angry your mother has been in the past, or how much she has scolded you, it’s all for the best. If you think that she doesn’t understand, request to sit down and have a chat! Communication is key! After understanding you, she will take a step back and let you do what you want to do. Don’t take it for granted though, and you need to take a few steps back, understand and forgive her as well. Never vent your anger on her! At the end of the day, you’re your mother’s biological child, and no mother would ever wish to hurt their child. With that, here comes the end of the blog. I’ve left a small little note for all mothers below. Hence, if you’re a mother, take a read. If you’re a student, let your mom take a look! Till next time, bye!

A Little Note | 给妈妈的小编条

To all mothers in the world:

Thank you for all the effort and hard work you put in to bring us up. Your love is like the wings of an angel, encompassing us within.
