Mother = female + horse
Today is the International Women’s Day.
For fun, I would like to share the following writing that a Chinese friend forwarded to me. Here is my rough translation from Chinese into English.
In Chinese, the character for mother is made of two parts: female + horse. Think about it, isn’t mom a work horse?
Mom is the woman who works like a horse for you. How can you not love her?
At 3: Mommy, I love you.
At 10: Mom, whatever.
At 16: My mom is a nagger.
At 18: I want to leave this home.
At 25: Mom, you were right.
At 30: I want to go home.
At 50: I don’t want to lose my mom.
At 70: I am willing to give up everything to get my mom back.
The most we say to mom is:
“Mom, where is my cloth?”
“Mom, what’s for dinner?”
“Mom, I am hungry.”
“Mom, can I go out?”
The most we say to dad is:
“Dad, where is mom?”
We all have a good mother, how can we not love her?
When you are sick, mom says: “Don’t scare me.”
When you are eating, mom says: “Don’t care about me.”
When you get married, mom says: “Don’t think of me.”
When mom is sick, mom says: “Don’t worry, I am OK.”
Time, please stand still and be good to all the wonderful mothers around the world.
Some day, when mom can’t stand on her own and walk on her own, please hold her hand, and walk slowly with her, just like she held your hand long time ago.
Wishing all mothers Happy International Women’s Day!
