向拥有92年的丰富人生阅历的“天才母亲”致敬!

“天才母亲”的故事分享: 就在几天前,我的母亲迎来了她92岁的寿辰,她经常教导我要学会珍惜当下,不要沉浸在对往昔的回忆,也不要迷失于对未来的幻想,这简单的人生哲学远比我阅读过的其他书籍都更有价值。 已经92岁的她,身体状况仍保持良好,她能借助手杖缓慢的走动,但骨质疏松症让她的胸椎及腰椎负荷量加大,使脊椎前倾形成驼背。她还有高血压的问题。 我的父母祖籍广州,之后移民至 “南洋”,他们曾受过良好的教育,经历过第二次世界大战,包括马来亚时代的动荡与变迁,也面对过共产主义的威胁。  我的家族历史可追溯到清朝时代,而我的孩子现在已是第24代传人。我的父亲于几年前去世,享年94岁,我的父母结婚已有69年,这让我感到悲痛。
