作为基督徒数十年,外婆已改掉很多年轻时候的脾气,时时捐钱给教堂和他人,读《圣经》。信仰给了她很多力量,所以她依然能平静。有时也看美国牧师布道的DVD,《圣经》一直放在枕头边。有时她也抱怨,比如家里请的保姆会懒惰、偷吃东西或者不关心她,孩子们回来看望太少,诸如此类。

As a Christian for decades,grandma had changed much young temper. She constantly donates money to the church and others and read Bible. She got a lot of power from faith so that she could still feel peace. Sometimes she would watch DVD of American preacher sermon and was always with Bible beside the pillow. Sometimes she would complain, for example, the housekeeper was lazy, would steal food to eat and was even not care about her. Children were seldom to go back to visit her and so on.


曾经一个聪明伶俐的女子,讲话幽默,头脑灵活,从本性上来讲,也是快乐和坚强的,但是被病痛折磨太长时间,让她完全无法自主。只是煎熬,等着油灯燃尽

She once was a woman of clever and sensible, humorous and smart. From nature, she was happy and strong, however because she was tortured by pain too long time, she could not even move by herself. She could not do anything but to wait until died.


我最后一次见到她,她躺在床上看重播的《还珠格格》。电视发出的声音吵闹,她乐在其中,不知道是真的在看,还是想在其中躲避。声音一直没有被拧小,所以我们无法进行有效的对话。

The last time I saw her, she lay in the bed watching replay Princess Huanzhu. The TV made a loud noise, but she was enjoying herself. I did not know whether she was really enjoying it or just wanted to escape something in it. Sound has not been tweaked, so we could not have effective dialogue.
