Just read an article which I would love to share with you guys, and this may make all of us think for a while:

Phone call in 2001
Son: Mom, there is a urgent order to finish right now, there is no way for me to go back to spend the holiday with you during the Spring Festival, Dad passed away ten years ago, and you are weak for the health, I am so upset when I think of your being alone for spending the holiday there. 

Mom: Don't worry, I am quite healthy, but I just want you to take care of yourself, and pay attention to your own health, don't get so tired by gaining more.

Son: Please don't worry, I am quite relaxing with my work, which is much relaxing than planting the veg in our farm, and we have good salary here plus the overpayment during the holiday. We have the welfare of the food from the factory, which the meals are rich, everybody here told that I am much fatter than before. 

Mom: That is good, I can be happy to hear that. But just don't eat too much, and look after your stomach which you always have the problem with.

Son: Mom, tell you a good news, before the holiday, we had the salary, which is totally RMB 800. I transferred RMB 500 to you through post office, the staff in the post office told me that you should be getting it before the holiday starting. You have been not easy for the whole life, and you always want to save every single cent. Now your son is gaining money, you must spend some for yourself getting a nice clothes plus buying some nice food. 

Mom: .....

Phone call in 2002

Son: Mom, we need to overwork this year again during the holiday, there is also a rule from the factory that we could gain double salary for the overworking of the holiday, so, we cannot come back to visit.

Mom: You cannot come back again this year. I specially make a lot of chestnuts for you which are your favorite. We had the harvest this year, I also prepare some peanuts for you, which I selected the best peanuts for you one by one. Those peanuts are with double seeds.

Son: We have everything here which you can get from the supermarkets. Please don't worry about me, just leave them to yourself and enjoy them. 

Mom: There would not be any comparison for those between in supermarket and at our own home

Son: It will be the same. Ah...I transferred RMB 1000 to you, please check it. Wish you a very happy Spring Festival, keep healthy. I need to go now.

    Sometimes your love to your family only lies in an easy home meal or a sweet talk even a silent company. Money is not everything.

    Long distance makes people more estranged to each other.
