小编摘要:做好事的确是有好报的。祖母说的是对的。种瓜得瓜,种豆得豆。"你做的每件好事总有一天会带来好报的"。

 

当我还在上初中时,有个8年级的校园恶霸打了我肚子一拳。那一拳不仅是痛得使我恼火,同时也使我感到了几乎无法容忍的丢脸和羞辱。我不顾一切地想找他算账!我计划第二天在停放自行车的车架处,找他讨回公道,让他也尝我一拳。
When I was in junior high, the eighth-grade bully punched me in the stomach. Not only did it hurt and make me angry, but the embarrassment and humiliation were almost intolerable. I wanted desperately to even the score! I planned to meet him by the bike racks the next day and let him have it.
不记得为什么,我把我的计划告诉了祖母-真是个错误呀。结果她对我进行了长时间的说教(她的话可不是一般的多)。说教真的是十分无聊,但是,我仍然含糊地记得,她叫我没有必要去找那个坏小子麻烦,她说,"好人有好报,坏人得坏报。"我对她说(当然是用一种温和的方式),我认为她是在鬼扯。我告诉她,我一直在做好事,我所得到的只是"胡说!"(我没有用"鬼扯")。但是,她仍然坚持她的说法。她说,"你做的每件好事总有一天会带来好报的,你做的每件坏事总有一天也会带来坏报。"
For some reason, I told my plan to Nana, my grandmother - big mistake. She gave me one of her hour-long lectures (that woman could really talk). The lecture was a total drag, but among other things, I vaguely remember her telling me that I didn't need to worry about him. She said, "Good deeds beget good results, and evil deeds beget bad results." I told her, in a nice way, of course, that I thought she was full of it. I told her that I did good things all the time, and all I got in return was "baloney!" (I didn't use that word.) She stuck to her guns, though. She said, "Every good deed will come back to you someday, and every bad thing you do will come back to you."
我花了30年才明白她话语中的智慧。祖母住在加州拉古拉岗市的寄宿和护理所。每个星期二,我都去探望她,带她出去吃晚餐。她总是穿戴整洁地坐在前门旁边的一把椅子上等我。我清楚地记得在她被送入疗养院前,那是最后一次我们一起吃晚餐。我们驾车来到附近一家简朴的家庭自营餐馆。我为祖母点了一份炖肉,我自己要了一个汉堡包。食物送上餐桌后,我就开吃了,但我注意到祖母却没有进食。她只是盯着盘中的食物看。我把自己的餐盘推开,拿过祖母的餐盘,放在我面前,我把肉切成小块的片,然后再把餐盘放回到她面前。由于非常虚弱,她费了半天劲才把肉叉起来,送入嘴里。我猛地想起了以前的一段往事,泪水即刻从眼里流了下来。40年前,当我还是一个小男孩的时候,祖母总是帮我把餐桌上盘中的肉切成小片,我才能能够吃下去。
It took me 30 years to understand the wisdom of her words. Nana was living in a board-and-care home in Laguna Hills, California. Each Tuesday, I came by and took her out to dinner. I would always find her neatly dressed sitting in a chair right by the front door. I vividly remember our very last dinner together before she went into the convalescent hospital. We drove to a nearby simple little family-owned restaurant. I ordered pot roast for Nana and a hamburger for myself. The food arrived and as I dug in, I noticed that Nana wasn't eating. She was just staring at the food on her plate. Moving my plate aside, I took Nana's plate, placed it in front of me, and cut her meat into small pieces. I then placed the plate back in front of her. As she very weakly, and with great difficulty, forked the meat into her mouth, I was struck with a memory that brought instant tears to my eyes. Forty years previously, as a little boy sitting at the table, Nana had always taken the meat on my plate and cut it into small pieces so I could eat it.
虽然用了40年的时间,但,做好事的确是有好报的。祖母说的是对的。种瓜得瓜,种豆得豆。"你做的每件好事总有一天会带来好报的"。
It had taken 40 years, but the good deed had been repaid. Nana was right. We reap exactly what we sow. "Every good deed you do will someday come back to you."
那个8年级的坏小子怎样了?
What about the eighth-grade bully?
他撞上了9年级的坏小子。
He ran into the ninth-grade bully.
