A Good Daughter-in-Law
(Minghui.org) I am one of Master's countless disciples. I have benefited so much from practicing Dafa that I want to report my progress to Master and share my experiences with everyone.
My Illness Cured
I grew up in the countryside. After I was engaged, my parents helped me get a job in town. My fiance was a high school classmate. He was a capable and eloquent person, who I admired very much. Later, I helped him to become a salesman in my company. We got married.
When our social status improved, however, my husband had an affair a few years later. I felt devastated, like I was struck by lightning, and could not accept the fact, especially since our child had just been born. I went to find the other woman and confront her.
Since I was not fully recovered from childbirth, the stress took its toll on my weakened state, and I developed a heart problem. I felt so aggrieved that he treated me this way because he would not have achieved anything if I did not get him a job. My life was so painful, physically and mentally.
My mother-in-law began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. Shortly afterward, her deafness was healed and she regained her hearing. Encouraged by her, I started to practice Dafa in 1998. A month later, my heart problem was cured.
Treating My Husband Kindly
Through studying Zhuan Falun, my attitude toward my husband changed. Even though he kept having affairs, I treated him kindly.
In 2001, another affair of his was discovered. His younger brother and sister felt so angry for me that they asked me to go to reason with his mistress. I refused.
I later went with my mother-in-law to ask the mistress to stop seeing my husband but to no avail. I also invited her to my home and kindly encouraged her to stop the affair, but there was no progress.
My other relatives were angry and wanted to beat her up. I told them that I might have done something bad to her in my previous life and perhaps I was repaying a debt.
We bought a new house in 2010. When I went back to my old house to get something, I found my husband and his new mistress there. I told them how shameful it was to commit adultery and how the gods would not approve of this type of behavior.
I told them that I would not do anything to harm them because I am a Dafa practitioner. Unexpectedly, the mistress told me that she wanted to learn Dafa.
She came to my home later and learned the exercises. She became a true practitioner and repented for her behavior in the past. She sincerely thanked Master for saving her, and we were able to become friends and fellow practitioners.
My husband has not lived in our house most of the time since 2001, but I decided to take care of my mother-in-law after my father-in-law passed away. She liked to live with me since we are both practitioners. I paid her living expenses and gave her spending money.
She always says good things about me and calls me “a good daughter-in-law.” She is in her 90s and still in good health.
My brother-in-law and sister-in-law moved to town with my and my husband's help. They have good lives. They all thanked me for taking good care of their mother.
I am just doing what a Dafa practitioner should do and sincerely thank Master for his compassionate salvation.
