It has been two months that I travel to Hampshire Road home every day, drive in the peak hours.
Blended in the busy traffic, I can not help thinking of you of the years you were on the road like that.
Darling, I miss you, we miss you very very much.
Recently, two words "growing pain" constantly hit my mind. As human we all have to go through the growing pains. I have been through and I reckon that you and your dad are still going on the way of the path. Of course, you are only at the beginning of the life journey.
Now at 65, I finally felt that I am done with it - I mean the growing pains. It means I am grown up now.
The life for me now is like re-living the past. For instance, driving to the work place every day, racing against the time - remember that? You were in my car to be dropped off at the child care or the school. Talking to the people, all sorts of the people....... It was always nerving for me due to being not sure about the things. Now I am confident in dealing with all sorts of the people, not only language-wise but also the culture-wise, also with the understanding of the human weakness.
Recently I had the chance to chat with the painters who worked in Hampshired Road house everyday. Once the painter Ralph mentioned about the book he read when he was young, which was called "how to win the friends and influence people". It was the book I happened to have read too, about 40 years ago. I read the Chinese version, which was titled "human weakness" instead.
The painters pondered about the Chinese title I refer to. He agreed that it made sense.
Darling, Have you ever read this book? I strongly recommend it.
Life is a long journey. It is true - no pain no gain.
Darling, you are my loving daughter and you certainly have my gene. I am confident that you will do much better than I do.
I have so much to talk to you but hard to write at a time.
It is cold now in the middle of the night, I need to go back to bed. Take care, darling.
Have a good day.
