A Special Gift for My Mother on Mother's Day
(Minghui.org) Six years ago, I gave my mother a very special gift for Mother's Day.
I did not give her money like many people would do, nor did I buy her new clothes or give her flowers. As a practitioner of Falun Dafa, I have benefited so much from it that, naturally, I wanted the same for my mother, so that she would also be healthy and have peace of mind.
I prepared a very sacred gift for her – a copy of Falun Dafa's main teachings. I gave her the book Zhuan Falun with both hands. “Dear Mother, happy mother's day. I give you this precious book and hope you will read it.” She took the book with both hands and said she would.
From that day on, she began to read a paragraph in Zhuan Falun every day. In time she read two, and then three paragraphs a day. In the end, she managed to read two pages of the book every day before going out.
She was nearly 80 years old then, and she said to me, “Dafa is good but I won't practice it. I will just read the book. I have a bad temper, and I'm afraid I cannot conduct myself like a practitioner and might ruin Dafa's reputation.”
Although my mother didn't become a Falun Dafa practitioner, she has always remembered that Falun Dafa is good. In the six years since she began reading Zhuan Falun, she has had several experiences in which she escaped danger unharmed.
Unscathed after Accident
One summer day as my mother was riding her electric bicycle to town, a parked van suddenly turned out into the road and hit her. She was stunned. The driver stuck his head out and asked, “Are you all right?” My mother replied, “I'm okay.” The driver quickly drove away to avoid being held responsible for the accident.
Unhurt, my mother sat on the bicycle and recovered her composure. The bicycle basket was flattened by the impact and the front part of the bicycle was damaged. She managed to ride home, and when my elder brother saw the bicycle, he knew it had been hit.
He kept asking Mother for details about the driver who had hit her, but she said calmly, “I'm all right, so why make him pay? You just need to repair the bicycle.”
Recovering in 10 Days after a Bad Fall
Riding home on her bicycle one day, my mother fell and passed out. Fortunately, someone in the same village saw her and notified our family. She was taken to the hospital, but power to several hospitals in the city, including that one, had been cut off.
She was taken home. She could not eat or drink and kept complaining of nausea and dizziness. The next day, she was admitted to the hospital and the doctors said her condition was serious.
I was very sad to see my mother like that. I asked Master to save her, and day by day she improved. I played Master's lectures for her, and on the 10th day, she was able to go home.
A specialist compared X-rays taken before and after, and was amazed by her speedy recovery.
Mother Survives a Brain Hemorrhage
One morning last October, it was past 9 a.m., and the neighbors thought it strange that my mother had not left the house yet. My mother lived alone, and the neighbors got a young man to climb over the wall to check on her.
From the window, he saw that she was lying in bed sick. He kicked the door open and went in. Other neighbors contacted my brothers. They rushed over and took my mother to the hospital.
The doctors said she had suffered a brain hemorrhage, but thankfully it was discovered early or else she would have died. This time my mother stayed in the hospital for 15 days. She is fully recovered now.
Mother Wants Everyone to Remember “Falun Dafa is Good”
A few days ago, our village organized free medical checkups for the elderly. The doctors said my mother was very fit. I said to her, “You managed to avoid danger on several occasions because you support Dafa and have been blessed. Master is protecting you and has saved your life. You must live well to repay him.”
Ever since my 85-year-old mother received a copy of Zhuan Falun for Mother's Day six years ago, she has improved physically and mentally. She wants to let everyone know that “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She hopes everyone will support Dafa and have a good future.
