[美文阅读]引路天使引路天使

  My grandma gave me a calendar picture when I was little. A beautiful angel was shown shepherding a boy and a girl acrossabridge. Ithad been in her house and I loved it. When it was a new year, she gave it to me. My mama tacked it up by my bed. Every night when I said my prayers, I would look at the angel and the children and think about how much God must love us to send angels to guide us. I knew all about it because my mama told me everyone had a guardian angel.
  She said that my angel was very special because I was born with a hole in my heart. The doctors had told my mama and my papa that there wasn’t much of a chance for me to have anormallife, and ifI lived, itwould beamiracle. Mymama had to give me oxygen and prop me up with pillows. I couldn’t walk because of my weakheart.
  I didn’t know I should miss playing and running around. I had my wonderful dogs, and Mama taught me how to read. I went everywhere and did everything when I read a story in a book. Sometimes I was really sick. Sometimes I had pneumonia and had to stay at the hospital.
  When I was five and a half, my mama heard of a new surgery that repaired little children’s hearts. It was risky, but Mama was brave and believed that God had senther amessage. She wrote to the doctor and he wrote back. She told me that she prayed the operation would make me healthy and let me live a longlife.
  The doctors who performed the surgery were all back East. We lived in rural California. My papa wanted me to have the surgery, but we were very poor. We couldn’t travel back East, live in a hotel and wait for my turn for the new surgery. I played with my dogs and little plastic horses with cowboys, and I still read Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, but I was getting weaker. Some days I couldn’t even sit up.My fingers got blue from lack of oxygen,andsodidmyface.
  One day, the doctor from the East wrote to my mother. A doctor at a San Francisco hospital was learning to do the surgery, and he had asked for my name to be put on the list. We were excited, but worried. Mama said she would pray, and God wouldhaveitcomeoutright.
  We took the Greyhound bus to San Francisco. One of my cousins drove us in his car to my Auntie Edna’s house. The next morning, we went to the hospital. Mama carried me and Auntie Edna carried my oxygen tank. I don’t remember much except I had to have a crib, not a cot like at home. I also had to havelotsoftests.
  That night when I laid in the hospital crib, Mama and I prayed that God would help the doctor help me get well. Mama then told me,“Baby, I have to go back to Auntie Edna’s, but I’ll come back first thing in the morning and see you before your surgery. And I’ll be here when you wake up. You’ll be all well, pink and healthy. You’ll be able to run and play like the otherlittlekids.”

Then she gave me a stuffed cat that looked like my barn cat Tom back home. She also gave me the calendar picture my grandma had given me so long ago. I cried at the picture of the beautiful angel leading the children over the bridge. I could hearmymother’sheelsclickingawaydownthehospitalhall.

  I cried and cried. Finally, I looked at the picture of that angel and felther puther wings around metohelp mepray. She led me in my prayers, and showed me the way to God’s love thatnight.Ifellasleep.

  When I woke up, the doctor said my mama was waiting to come in to see me. She came to me and I saw her smiling with tears on her cheeks.
  “Baby,you’refixed now,”shesaid.“No more hole in your little heart.”“Now I can run and play like other kids.”I whispered to her.“Yes, baby, and live a long life, too.”Mama kissed my forehead.

  That was more than fifty years ago. When I see that same picture of the angel and the children crossing the bridge, I still feel that magnificent love for my mama and for God, that night before my hearts urgery.
  小时候,奶奶给了我一张月历画。画上,一个美丽的天使带领着一个男孩和一个女孩过一座桥。这张画以前是挂在她屋里的,我非常喜欢。到了新年的时候,奶奶把它送给了我。妈妈把它钉在我的床边。每天晚上祈祷的时候,我都要看着天使和两个小孩,心里想着,上帝派天使来指引我们,他的爱是何等博大。我知道这一切都是妈妈告诉我的,她说每一个人都有一个护佑天使。
