雨天与阳光 Sunshine on a Rainy Day

几个月前,我收到的的 Tsili的这些太阳花明信片,让我想起了电影中的一段剧情。在剧中,有一个女生想尽办法要安慰失落的朋友。她刚巧经过一个花店就问店员:“有没有可以为朋友带走悲伤的花?“ 当她把花交到朋友手中,朋友什么也没说只是微笑的点点头。





Some time ago I received these sunflower postcards from Tsili that remind me of a script in a movie. In the movie, I recalled a woman looking for something to cheer her friend up. She passed by a florist shop and asked for a flower that could brighten up her friend's day.With a bunch of sunflowers, she nodded and her smile was back again.

Have you ever had a day when everything seemed to go wrong, and nothing seemed to go right? Not too long ago I was having one of those days. I was discouraged, weary, and plain sad. My focus was on me, me, me. After all, no one else was experiencing the same trials I was.

I expressed my downcast state to my mother, hoping for some pity. Instead, she said, "I heard Jamie was having a difficult day too. Why don't you make her some cookies and we'll take them to her this afternoon?"

I didn't really want to, but decided that I didn't want to go back to my other problems just yet. I made the cookies and arranged them on a little plate. Then I made a card with a sunflower on it and wrote a small note of empathy.

That afternoon we dropped by my friend's house. I went to the door and rang the bell. Soon, Jamie came to the door and looked at me in surprise for the unexpected visit. Before she could say anything I rushed, "I heard you were having a hard day and decided to bring you something. I hope your day goes better." The look that came over Jamie's face was one that I could never put into words. It was as if a darkened sky was suddenly lit with the golden rays of the sun; it was as if in that small act, her day was brightened.

I got back into the car and for some amazing reason, I felt a lot better myself. That day I experienced the truth that James Barrie attempted to describe. "Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves."
