-Mommy,what are you doing?",asked Susie,a 6 year old girl.
-I'm preparing stewed meat for Ms Smith-our neighbor,dear!
-Why do u have to do that,mom??
-"Because she's now extremely desperate,honey.Her daughter has just died and you know,it hurts her alot.We'll take care of her",said tenderly the mother.
-I still don't understand why,mom.
-"Ok,listen.sweetheart,when people are sad,they cannot do anything well even small things such as cooking or things like that.Because we are living near her,in the same area,moreover,she's our neighbor,we have to help her when she's in need.",sighed the mother,"Ms Smith will never be able to hug or kiss her daughter or to do anything u and I can do together everyday.You are an intelligent girl,Susie.You can think of some way to help her.
Susie spent time thinking about wat her mom had said and the way to help Ms Smith now seriously.Few minutes later,hesitating in front of Ms Smith's house,Susie rang the bell in a very timid way.Hearing the beel ring,Ms Smith opened the door:
-Hi Susie,wat can I do for u,dear?
It seemed to Susie that Ms Smith's voice was so small that her words seemed to came in short gasps.Her face looked pale as though she had just cried because tears were welling up in her eyes.
-"My mom told me ur daughter had just passed away and now you are disappointed because your heart is injured",said Susie,giving her hands to Ms Smith.In her hands was a compress,"This is for ur broken hear",emphasised Susie,"I have used it many times...and it's very good,I think."
Gasping at Susie,Ms Smith tried to stem the upsurge of a stabbing pain and not to cry out.She broke down and hold Susie tight in her arms
-Thank you..Thank you,sweetheart.I'll cheer me up...it'll help me alot..
That small but marvellous compress brought a miracle to Ms Smith's broken heart.Since then,Ms Smith had never left that compress.To her,it was something to remind her to forget the pain and the loss......
When you have to tolerate a bitter stab,U can never realize that wound in ur heart will recover.The compress that Susie had gave Smith became a symbol for the repair of the wound and love.The memories that Ms Smith had had with her beloved daughter became wonderful memories,not bitter ones following her soul for the rest of her life....
Hìhì...^_^...If u have a chance...go to the bookstore and buy a disk named :LOVING HEART....u'll hear this story..and u'll realize my voice as Susie....enjoy the stories(if they still sell that disk)
It's 4 years since we made that disk...I wonder if they stil sell it.....ouch..miss u guys....
