母親的長笛


母親在二O一六𤠣年最後一天在美國華府去世這已經是近五年前的事我們對她的思念更是與日倶增。


當我懂事時我和家人是生活在一個偏遠的中緬小鎮上我總記得在沒有水和電的落後鄕鎮上, 對於一位年輕又曾在家鄉執教的音樂老師而言,她在一㘯巨大的變局中而成了流浪天涯的遊客我總是看見她挑水做飯和在孤燈下縫補舊衣的身影但是我的母親她從未透露或講述她的过去總算在她離開家鄉二十五年後我們陪她回到了她童年時的故鄉當大批親友好友們共聚在外婆家诺大的古宅前許多早已年過古稀的鄉親們大聲歡呼說: “趙老師回來了 我第一次看到母親在帶有驕傲的笑容中留下了熱淚在無情的坎坷歲月中她當年神彩飞掦的少女歲月和容顏早已不在但她那股能屈能伸的坚韧精神讓我對她無比敬佩和感動。


多年來我們全家走過了千山萬水總算在美國定居我們在奮鬥創業之艱難歲月中母親總是我們最好的讀者和觀眾那年我從國外回來買了支長笛送給母親每當我在享受了一頓她親手烹調的雲南家鄉菜後她總要拿出那支細長的直笛給大家表演一曲那首美麗旋律表現了母親對音樂之酷愛。


今天我們一起在此慶祝母親節在每一個人的心目中媽媽都曾在人生旅途上烙下不可磨滅的印記。


我可以非常肯定而驕傲的說從有記憶開始我似乎從來未向母親说過“不”字母親為我們樹立了非常重要堅定的形象那就是面對困難絕不言退要「見山開路見水搭橋」。


母親長眠在美國首都華盛頓波多馬河畔已有五載之久她的長笛聲和剛毅不屈之精神永遠支持和引導我們前進。


值此母親節前夕我也含淚執筆再次感激她對我們養育之恩母親請妳好好安息吧。

Celebrating Mother's Day


Almost five years ago our mom passed away in Washington, D.C. When we are here celebrating Mother's Day without her, we feel a kind of sadness and still remember her every day.


When I was a teenager our family lived in a small town nearby the China and Burma border. This poor town had no water and no electricity. I remember mom was the one who went to the water well and got water and cooked a meal for the whole family. When she was a young adult mom was a music teacher in her hometown. Almost twenty-five years later I was with my mom when we visited her hometown again. A lot of people still called out, “our teacher is coming back!” Suddenly I saw tears come rolling down her cheeks, but with a very proud smile. Mom had never told us about her teaching career before.


After a long journey, we finally came to America. Mom spent a lot of time with my sisters in Dallas and Washington D.C. Every time when I visited her she prepared a home-cooked meal and always played a flute to entertain the whole family. She loved music and became a music teacher.


In the past several years mom spent a very joyful time with the whole family. She always would tell us that we needed to fight for our future. As an old saying goes, “When you see the mountain, we need to open the road. When you see the water, you need to build a bridge.”


We are so very proud that we had such a wonderful mom to set the example for our future.


Today we all celebrate Mother's Day. Everybody has their own story about their mother. We all should feel they are the greatest.
