[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] My 106-Year-Old Mother Is Blessed Because She Supports Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Since I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, my mother has always supported me and has been blessed as a result. In this article, I want to share some of her experiences.
My mom is very kind and hardworking . She has enjoyed good health all her life. When she had a physical exam at the age of 90, the doctor said that she had the heart of someone in her 40s. Her blood pressure is normal, she doesn't have many wrinkles, and she has a rosy complexion.
Although my mom doesn't practice Falun Dafa, she has always supported me and often recites “Falun Dafa is good.” During those years when the persecution was most severe, I established a material production site at home, and my mom contributed much of her own savings for me to make informational materials about Falun Dafa.
I was arrested and sent to a forced labor camp for one year in 2009. Initially, my brothers didn't tell my mom about the persecution. After not seeing me for months, she kept asking them about me and they finally told her where I was.
I was very surprised when my 97-year-old mother visited me in the labor camp. In front of two police officers, she said to me, “My dear daughter, I know you are a good person. You shouldn't feel bad about being detained here! It's the world that has gone bad.”
I was very touched but didn't cry in front of her. Her righteous support inspired and encouraged me to persevere despite the bars around me. And because of her good heart, she survived three life-threatening events.
The first time, she slipped and fell in the bathroom. She broke her pelvis and couldn't walk. She was 100 at the time.
When we took her to the hospital, the doctor pushed the bone back into position. But the pieces wouldn't align and a big crack remained. The doctor told us that, given her age, it was almost impossible that she would ever walk again.
After we returned home, we recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” together every day. Less than three months later, she was able to stand up and walk!
The second time was when my mom was 101 years old. She fell again and hit her head. Her head swelled and she had a big bruise. She couldn't move half of her body and would occasionally have convulsions.
After she had a brain scan, the doctor saw that she had bleeding in the brain that was interfering with her nervous system and her ability to move. She had to have surgery to remove the clot, but the doctor was very concerned about the risks of operating on someone her age. I knew Master was protecting her and that she would be fine, so I signed the consent form for the surgery.
I stayed with my mom and said to her “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also played Master's lectures to her and asked Master to help her.
The surgery went well and she regained consciousness with no problem. She recovered quickly and was discharged from the hospital in 20 days.
The third time, my mom had a bad case of pneumonia with a high fever before the 2016 Chinese New Year. She had difficulty breathing and couldn't eat or drink. The doctor issued a notice of “critical condition” and suggested that we stop treatment and take her home.
I stayed with my mom in the hospital. I wasn't worried and kept asking Master to help her.
Master said: “Since you practice a righteous way, your practice will benefit others.” (Zhuan Falun)
With strong faith in Master, I believed that she would be fine.
Gradually, her fever went down and she coughed less. Before I realized it, she pulled the feeding tube out herself and began to eat normally. A month later, she recovered and left the hospital.
Thank you, Master and Dafa, for saving my mom again!
My mom is now 106 years old and still enjoys good health. Every day she says, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
