  Ever since I was little, my favorite season was winter. I loved to play in the snow and enjoy the hot chocolate.

  打小時候起,我最喜歡的季節就是冬天。我喜歡在雪堛情A喜歡喝熱巧克力。

  Unfortunately, winter never gave me the special gift of snow on my birthday. The snow disappeared before my birthday and started after it.

  遺憾的是,冬天從沒在我生日那天送給我特別的禮物——雪。我生日來臨前雪就沒了,生日過後卻又下了起來。

  I would ask my grandmother why it didn’t snow on my birthday. She would laugh and tell me I asked too many questions. But one day, she promised that she would make it snow on my next birthday. I thanked her.

  我會問我祖母為什麼我生日那天不下雪。她聽了就會笑起來,並說我問題太多。可有一天,她許諾在我下一次生日的時候,她要讓老天下雪。我謝了她。

  That year, before my birthday, my grandmother died. I was at an emotional loss, but angry because she had promised me to make it snow. The day of my sixth birthday, I woke up and ran to the window, hoping to see just one snowflake. Unfortunately, there was no snow. I cried and cried all day because my grandmother had let me down.

  那年,我的生日還沒到,我的祖母就過世了。我很傷心,但又感到生氣,因為她答應我要讓老天下雪的。六歲生日那天,我醒後就跑到窗前,希望能看到哪怕一片雪花。遺憾的是,沒有下雪。我哭了一整天,因為我的祖母讓我失望了。

  Before my birthday every year, I would pray for snow but it never came. I felt mad at my grandmother; she had broken a promise.

  每年我的生日到來之前,我都祈禱著下雪,可雪從沒在那天下過。我對我祖母很生氣,因為她違背了諾言。

  By my sixteenth birthday, I had lost all hope of getting my snow, even though I still wished for it. During my party, I had the best time ever! I enjoyed the company of my friends and family, and I was truly happy.

  到了我16 歲生日時,儘管我仍然渴望有雪,但我已不抱任何希望了。在整個生日聚會過程中,我過得前所未有的開心,和朋友及家人在一起讓我感到非常快樂與幸福。

  I was outside with a friend when she asked me if I was having a good time. I told her I was having the best time ever. Then I saw the white snow falling all around. I became like a little child on Christmas morning as I ran around screaming and laughing. I was so excited that my friends looked at me as if I were crazy, and I think I was. They asked me if I had ever seen snow before, and I laughed and said that I had, but this was special snow. They all laughed at me, but I didn’t care.

  我和一位朋友在屋外時,她問我是否玩得開心。我告訴她我過得前所未有的開心。隨後,我看到白雪在四週落下。我四處跑啊、叫啊、笑啊,變得就像一個聖誕節早上的小孩一樣。我激動得不得了,我的朋友們都看著我,就好像我瘋了。現在想想,那時我是瘋了。他們問我以前見過雪沒有,我大笑著說見過,不過這是場特別的雪。他們都笑我,可我不在乎。

  When I got home, my grandpa told me he had a gift for me. I was confused because he had already given me my gift. He gave me a small white box that had snowflake wrapping on it. The box looked old, and it was turning a little yellow. I asked him what it was and he told me to stop asking so many questions and just open it. I did, and nestled in white paper was a crystal snowflake with a card that said, “Happy Birthday.”

  我回家後,我的祖父對我說他有件禮物給我。我糊塗了,因為他已經給過我禮物了。他給了我一個包裝紙上有雪花圖案的小白盒。盒子顯舊,有點發黃。我問他那是什麼,他要我別再發問,打開盒子就是了。我打開盒子,看見半隱半現在白紙中的是一片水晶雪花和一張寫著“生日快樂”的賀卡。

  I asked my grandfather how this could be. He told me that it was my grandmother’s final wish to give me this on my “sweet sixteenth.” I cried and hugged him, although he didn’t understand. I said a silent prayer to my smiling grandmother angel who I was certain was, and always had been, watching over me.

  我問我祖父這是怎麼回事。他告訴我說,我祖母的臨終願望是在我“愉快的16 歲生日”之際給我這份禮物。我流下了眼淚,擁抱了他,儘管他不明白前因後果。我向我面帶微笑的天使般的祖母默默祈禱,我肯定她正護佑著我。她一直護佑著我。
