  Cost of Love

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

  For washing the car.$5.00

  For making my own bed this week$1.00

  Going to the provision shop.$

  Playing with little sister$0.25

  Taking out the rubbish$1.00

  Getting a good report card$5.00

  And for sweeping the common corridor..$

  Total.$14.75

  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 turning the paper over, this is what she wrote:

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

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

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

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

  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."

  一天晚上,老婆在厨房筹办晚饭的时分,我们的小儿子拿着一张纸走向他母亲。上面写道:

  洗车---------------------------------5美圆

  本周整顿我的房间----------------1美圆

  为你去商铺-------------------------0.5美圆

  看管小姊妹-------------------------0.25美圆

  外出倒垃圾-------------------------1美圆

  结果报告单取得精良--------------5美圆

  清扫通道----------------------------2美圆

  总计----------------------------------14.75美圆

  他母亲望着他儿子满怀期望地站在那儿等着拿钱。我能看到她脑筋里翻滚着影象的浪花。她拿起钢笔把儿子写过的纸翻过来。在上面写道:

  你呆在我的腹中,我为你妊娠玄月------------------------------免费;

  晚上陪同着你,为你求医,为你祷告----------------------------免费;

  为你筹办玩具、食品、衣服甚至为你擦鼻涕--------------------免费,

  你把以上所有的累加起来,我为你支付的全数的爱------------免费。

  儿子读完母亲写的话,双眼含着豆大的泪花,他望着他的母亲说:“母亲,我爱你。”他拿出钢笔在他的“帐单”上写了几个大大的字:“全数要还清。”
