After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, “I love you, but I know this other woman loves you too, and she would love to spend some time with you.”
This other woman my wife wanted me to visit was my mother, who has been a widow（寡妇）for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally. That night I called to invite her to go out for a dinner and a movie.
“What’s wrong, are you well?” she asked.
“I thought that it would be pleasant to pass some time with you,” I replied. “Just the two of us.” She thought about it for a moment then said, “I would like that very much.”
That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up, I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary（周年纪念）.
“I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed,” she said, as she got into the car. “They can’t wait to hear about our meeting.”
We went to a nice restaurant, and my mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. When I lifted my eyes, I saw Mom sitting there looking at me.
“It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,” she said.
“Then it’s time that you relaxed and let me return the favor,” I replied.
During the dinner, we had a happy conversation. We talked so much that we missed the movie.
A few days later my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I didn’t have a chance to do anything for her. At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time “I LOVE YOU” and to give our loved ones the time that they should get, because this cannot be put off until “some other time”.

Delia was a young pianist. Her husband Joe was a talented young painter. They lived in a small flat in New York.
Each of them was taking lessons – Joe with a famous art teacher, and Delia with a great pianist from Germany. They were the best teachers, so lessons were expensive, more than they could really afford, but…when you love your art, nothing’s too much.
But soon, the money began to run out and they couldn’t afford the lessons any more.
Then one day Delia came home and told Joe that she had met a man. The man’s daughter, Sally, wanted to learn the piano – and he was going to pay her $50 an hour.
“Delia,” Joe said, “I’d be much happier if you kept up your lessons.” Delia said that it didn’t matter. She said, “When I’ve made some money, I’ll start again. When you love your art, nothing’s too much.”
A few days later, Joe came home and proudly took $200 from his pocket. “I met a man from Vermont,” he said, “who bought one of my paintings. And he wants to buy more!”
Then, one day, Joe came home and saw that Delia’s hand was burned. He asked her what had happened. “Oh,” said Delia. “My student, Sally, asked me to pour some coffee for her. So I did – and I dropped the coffee and burned my hand.”
Joe sat down and told Delia to sit down too. “Delia, what have you been doing the last two weeks?” he asked. She took a deep breath and started to cry. “Oh Joe – I couldn’t get any students so I got a job in a coffee shop. And today I burned my hand with hot water. So I can’t work any more. I’m sorry, Joe – but we’ll still have money from the man in Vermont, won’t we?”
Joe looked at her. “There’s no man in Vermont,” he said. “I haven’t sold any paintings. I’ve been working in a drugstore (药店), and today someone came from the coffee shop to buy cream for a woman who’d burned her hand. So when I saw you – well, I guessed.”
They both laughed. “So we’ve told each other lies,” said Joe. “But when you love your art…”
Delia put her fingers to his lips. “No, Joe,” she said, “just ‘When you love ...’”

All parents wish their children, especially senior high students, could go to top universities and have a bright future. So they always expects their children to make full use of their time to study. They don’t allow them watch TV, play computer games or go out to play with their friends. Some students complain that their parents only concern about their grades but not their other needs.
To my opinion, how our parents are doing is out of nothing but love. The most important thing, I think, is that they should learn to communicate with our parents, telling them that we’ll never let them down and will work harder to earn trust and respect from them.
