我的乾媽

我的乾媽,有荷蘭血統,第五代。
我的乾媽,有阿美族血統,不知道第幾代。
我的乾媽,很有語言天份,會說流利的國語、閩南、客家四縣腔和客家海陸腔。
我的乾媽,將來一定很會說英語。

我的乾媽,冰雪聰明、工作勤奮、心地善良。
還好有她,我的釦子才有人縫。
還好有她,我的衣服才有人改。
還好有她,我做的食物才有人(敢)試吃。

這一切不是從「把車子停過去一點」開始,
也不是從「寫一下妳的名字」開始,
而是從我的衣服被她隔壁的洗衣店洗到縮水開始。

感謝上天,
讓我體認到除了隨緣,
爾後更應當惜福。

(那我是不是也要認個乾爸呢?)

How do you say "隨緣"and"惜福" in English?
Having the relationship with strangers by chance could be either good or bad. Whether you believe or not, it could be a must that you meet certain person. There's an arrangement God (whichever HE or SHE is) made to accompany you in your life. Things we always take them for granted could often need to appreciate and cherish.

"Having the relationship with strangers by chance could be either good or bad."

Use your wisdom to avoid the bad and keep the good.
