The new neighbor had limited knitting skills so she asked me to create sweaters for kids in hospital together. I agreed to the act of kindness because I had always been doing such similar things. In my spare time from babysitting, I was making children’s sweaters. A month later, I had done 20. My new neighbor, my son and I sent our gifts to the hospital. We explained our purpose, handed out sweaters to the parents and wished their kids a quick recovery. They all thanked me for our gifts.
Later, my new neighbor wanted to learn my knitting skills to serve the elderly in the nursing home. She really admired my skills, and I was glad to teach her, so she bought a set of loom just like mine. She quickly mastered the skills. Together we made winter hats for the old people in the nursing home. We soon made enough hats and gave them away to the old people, who needed these things badly. I hope that our gifts will make their life a little more comfortable. I’m happy to continue spreading this love to more people.
Then, Julia dropped everything and drove to the family's home. When she pulled up less than ten minutes later, the doctors were treating Philips while the two girls, looking visibly shaken, were outside with a neighbor. The quick response from Julia saved Phillips’ life. She was rushed to the hospital in time to get treatment before chronic damage occurred.
While the grandmother was in hospital, Julia became much busier. Because the child's parents were out of town, they couldn’t come back due to blockade. Julia had to give the children online lessons and went to the hospital to take care of Philips. Thanks to an extended stay in hospital, Phillips regained most of the movement. On the day of leaving hospital, she said to Julia “If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t’ be here. I can't thank you enough.” With tears in eyes, Julia responded “Lady, this is what we should do. In my two years as a teacher, it was the most meaningful thing I had ever done. I am so glad to see you recover.” After that, Phillips gave her a warm hug.
When Elijah came home and his mother showed it to him, he got really emotional. He stood there for several minutes staring at the hoop. The little boy was really shocked when he learned Aubrey got him a new hoop, which really touched him. He got teary-eyed but he’s an 11-year-old boy so he really didn’t want to admit he was crying. Elijah couldn’t wait to test out his new hoop. He couldn’t describe how much he loved the new hoop.
Weeks later, Aubrey came again, and Elijah was there waiting. Elijah ran to her and hugged her. “I am grateful you would do this for us. This has been a huge, huge thing for our family.” After giving her a card he made for her, Elijah invited Aubrey to play basketball. The two played basketball for nearly an hour until Aubrey had to go back to work. It was an act of kindness that led to a friendship and memories that will last a lifetime.
当以利亚回到家，他的母亲给他看时，他非常激动。他站在那里盯着篮筐看了几分钟。当小男孩得知奥布里给他买了一个新的箍时，他真的很震惊，这让他很感动。他泪流满面，但他是一个 11 岁的男孩，所以他真的不想承认他在哭。Elijah 迫不及待地想要测试他的新篮筐。他无法描述他对新篮筐的喜爱程度。
Now more at ease, the young man took the spoon and walked around the castle again. He enjoyed the wonders with his mouth open. Never had him seen such breath-taking world. The colorful curtains had embroidery of animals on them. The flowers in the garden were smiling under the care of the gardener. The young man was so lost in the paradise that he didn’t notice the walk come to the end. When he returned to the presence of the wise man,he said, "How charming this castle is! I would be happy if I lived here."
“But where are the two drops of oil I gave you ?” asked the wise man. Embarrassed again, the young man apologized, "T had forgotten the spoon totally. My only concern was the attractive sights” "But you have got the happiness." Smiled the wise man. And the young man nodded. That was the secret of happiness! Happiness doesn’t mean perfection, but a heart to appreciate the beauty of surroundings, which may give you mental satisfaction.
“可是我给你的那两滴油呢？” 智者问道。年轻人又不好意思了，连忙道歉：“T完全忘记了勺子。我只关心那些迷人的景色” ！幸福并不意味着完美，而是一颗欣赏周围美景的心，这可能会给你带来精神上的满足。
Monday morning, hiding behind the window, we soon saw what we were waiting for. It turned out that there were three kids from our school.They sneaked up on our snowman and sneered.Taking their places on either side, they pulled back their legs to deliver powerful kicks. But the moment they hit the hard ice block of the base, sneers turned into shock, then agony and tears.They howled and cursed, gritting their teeth and stomping their feet.
Seeing their pained look, we couldn’t help laughing.They were too funny as they hopped away holding their damaged feet.We just couldn’t contain our happiness and excitement.With a hearty laugh, we came out of hiding and sprang into the yard from inside the house. “An eye for an eye! Justice done！” We yelled behind them. And that was the end of our problems with the snowman bullies. Ever since then, our snowman was kept guarded and intact until it happily melted into spring water and finally wove into our sweetest childhood memories.
