My Relatives Praised My Filial Piety
(Minghui.org) Before I began practicing Falun Dafa, I was an introverted person and I liked to be alone. After I married my husband I had to live with his family. Later, my mother-in-law lost money in business and she had to sell the house to pay off her debts. The family had to rent a place to live.
Things didn’t go smoothly and we had to move a few times. It was especially hard on my father-in-law because he has a heart condition and high blood pressure. He could not rest or sleep well, because the apartment building was always noisy both day and night. The constant noise made my father-in-law angry, and he sometimes lost his temper.
As time passed, my father-in-law felt that his heart condition was getting worse and he was uncomfortable. He finally had to be hospitalized. After examining him, the doctor told us that the father-in-law’s condition was bad and he might die soon. My father-in-law had experienced a few heart attacks. Fortunately he did not die. Because my father-in-law knows that Dafa is good, he often says, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” so he was blessed.
After my parents moved out of their apartment, they decided to give it to me. I really appreciated their generosity. I decided to let my in-laws live there while my husband and I continued to live in the rental. I talked to my parents. Although they wanted my husband and I to live in the new house, they agreed after I told them about my in-laws’ situation.
I renovated the new house with my mother-in-law. After we finished, it felt very spacious and bright. My in-laws happily moved into the new house. Three years have passed, and my father-in-law not only did not have another heart attack but he also gained some weight.
All the relatives praised me for my filial piety. My husband’s aunts asked me, “How are you able to be so unselfish?” I told them it’s because I practice Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa has made me open-minded. Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance guides me to be kind to others.
I told them that I’m a practitioner and I just did what a daughter-in-law should do.
