(Minghui.org) My eldest daughter was turning six in June 2017, and registering her for elementary school was quite stressful. When I finally gathered all the required paperwork and went through the registration procedures, the school’s administrator thought my daughter’s arithmetic skill was weak. She told me to work with my daughter at home and try registering again later.

I was very upset. I reflected on why this happened to me. I knew my tone of voice had not been compassionate when I spoke to my children, and I did not correct it. I began to remind myself to be kind and calm when I talk to them.

Perhaps, because I found where my problem was, one night, my eldest daughter said: “Mommy, do you know how I picked you when I was still in heaven?”

“How?” I asked.

“There were many celestial beings with me in heaven, and I was in need of a human mom, but I didn’t know which one to pick. I walked about in the garden, and each mom was placed in a box. They looked like little dolls, so pretty!”

“Did mommy look different there?” I questioned.

“Yes, just like a doll with a pretty hairdo. I thought for a long time and couldn’t decide who to pick. In the end, my goddess mother told me to pick a cultivator as a mother, so I picked you! I wanted to come to earth right away and walked for a long time in a big dark place. All of the sudden I fell in Tiananmen Square, so I sent forth righteous thoughts and Master took me back!”

She has never been to Tiananmen Square and I have never mentioned the place to her. I became more inquisitive and encouraged her to continue.

“I saw grandma give birth to you,” she said. “You grew up, and I waited for you to give birth to me.”

She was excited to tell me all this, and I almost cried. Later, she emphasized that her goddess mother and her picked me because I am a cultivator, so that she could one day return to her place in heaven.

I was curious as to how she knew all of these things. “One day when I was sending righteous thoughts, Master showed me a painting, and I just knew,” she replied.

My eldest daughter does send forth righteous thoughts with me occasionally, and sometimes for a long time. She stayed focused, sitting in the full lotus position and didn’t want to stop when it ended.

“Why did Master want you to know all of these things?”

“Master saw you work so hard taking care of me and my younger sister!” Master also reminded her that this is something she can only say to cultivators.

My daughter has a strong sense of right and wrong. One day, I told her about her father and the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party. She cried. She told her friends how the Chinese national flag is stained with the blood of the Chinese people. Of her friends that listen, she tells them to remember “Falun Dafa is good.”

I became more aware of how precious cultivation is and to treasure our predestined relationship as a family. I also hope that other Falun Dafa practitioners with children can cherish the opportunity and bond with them, and lead them onto the path of cultivation!

My husband was imprisoned from 2015 to 2017 for refusing to renounce his faith. For those two years, besides having a full-time job and caring for our two young daughters, I appealed for justice and the release of my husband. They were hard times, but I never felt sorry for myself. Since I’m a Dafa practitioner, I am blessed by celestial power. Our two girls are well behaved and liked by those around them.

Whether people know about my circumstances or not, they see me as a strong person. I can endure all these hardships because I practice Falun Dafa.

My elderly neighbor often says to me: “You’re a tough girl. No one can imagine what you’ve been through just by looking at you!”

I would tell him it was because I have faith, and that he must remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

It’s clear to me that Master uses my children and other people’s words to encourage me. Only by staying diligent and doing the three things well, can I not disappoint Master!
