幸福无处不在

Happiness with Us

    我叫刘贵喜,我的丈夫叫张安远,我们有个孩子叫张金中,另一个叫刘彬。我们的老家在湖南城步南山牧场,家里有着七十岁的老母亲,几头老病奶牛和几分薄土。那时的粮食非常缺少,为了养活一家老小,我们俩带着正在读小学的孩子,到城里去打工。

    I am Liu Guixi, my husband Zhang Anyuan  and our children :One is Zhang Jinzhong,The other is Liu Bin. Our hometown is in pasture  of Nanshan Chengbu Hunan  where I have an seventy-year-old mother, an several old sick cows and several pieces of poor earth.  The grain was lacked at that time. In order to support a family, we brought our children who are studying in primary school to go into the city to earn a living.

    我们不想跟村里出来打工的那些乡亲一样干些挣钱少又累的苦力活,或者到别人家里去当小保姆。我跟安远一合计,四处筹了点钱,找了个街口开了一家日杂小店,我们自己就带着孩子,在离店不远的地方租了一间小房子住下了。我们的店虽然小,却什么都卖,针头线脑,油盐酱醋,可谓麻雀虽小五脏俱全。家里缺点日用品什么的,周围几个小区的人都上我们这小店顺手就买了,既经济又实惠,还方便。今年(1996年)已经是第三个年头了,店里生意还不错,筹的钱都还清了,还能供孩子在城里上个学,每个月还能给家里寄点钱回去。

    We dislike to do some tiring manual work which cannot earn much money like those fellow townsman from countryside. I figured out with Anyuan and raised money all round before opening a little shop to sell household supplies.  With our children brought, we rented a little room for living near the shop. Our shop is small but sells anything such as needle head and thread end, oils, salt, soybean sauce and vinegar. It can be described with an old Chinese saying that the sparrow may be small but it has all the vital organs. The people whose family lack of some convenience goods around the quarters are likely to come to our shop to buy in passing because it is economical, substantial and convenient. Today is already the third year and our business is very good. The money we borrowed has been paid off and we can afford my children to study in the urban school, even to transfer some money to our family every month.

    今天是9月29日,星期四,再平常不过的一天。早上六点不到,安远就起床蹬着三轮去进货了。我们一般是在月底的时候,一个月进一次货。匆匆洗漱完,我在炉子上坐上了一锅小米粥,等孩子起来的时候就差不多能喝了。洗了洗昨天丈夫和孩子换下来的脏衣服,出门买了两块油饼,回到家,一看时间,六点半,赶紧叫还在睡着的孩子起床。三人吃完早点,孩子背着书包上学,我带上昨天晚上做好的饭,赶到街口的店里,开始张罗今天的生意了。

    It is Sep 29, Thursday today, the most usual day. When it was earlier than six o’clock in the morning, Anyuan got up and rode his tricycle to transport goods. We purchased goods once in a month. After washing hurriedly, I cooked a pot of millet porridge on the oven, waiting for the children to get up and eat. I washed the dirty clothes my husband and children got off yesterday and bought oil cake from outside. When I came back home, it is about half past six, and I hasted to awaken the sleeping children to get up. After we had breakfast, the children went to school with school bags while I brought the rice cooked last night and rushed to our shop on the mouth of the street and began to operate today’s business.

    刚开门,李大妈就来了。乐不滋滋的称了两斤红糖,几斤鸡蛋,说是要给刚生了个大胖小子的儿媳妇补补身子。紧接着,旁边小区里送完自己孙子孙女上学上幼儿园的几位大爷大妈们也过来了,他们一般都爱在我这歇歇脚,唠唠嗑什么的。老人白天在家都没什么事,孩子都上班去了,送完孙子孙女们,剩下的时间就只能靠穷打发了。虽然生活吃穿不愁,其实我知道他们都挺孤单的,上午一般生意都很清淡,我也乐得陪陪他们。

    Just as opening the door, aunty Li came here buying two grams of brown sugar and several grams of eggs pleasantly. She said she would nourish her daughter-in-law who had just born a strong baby. Very soon, several uncles and aunties came here who had sent their grandson or granddaughter to the kindergarten in the next zone. They liked to stay here to have a rest, chatting something. These old people had nothing to do at home for their children had all gone to work. They would try to kill time after sending their grandson and granddaughter. Although they needn’t worry about their life, .I know they are all alone and I’d like to accompany them for the business is slack in the morning.

    九、十点钟,大爷大妈们刚走没多久,丈夫就蹬着三轮进货回来了。这趟可没少拉,看把他累的。赶忙递上把毛巾,倒了杯水给他。俩人忙忙叨叨的把货什么的都卸完了,我一看时间,都快中午了,赶紧把带来的饭盒放在一盆热水里给热上。为了省点钱,加上孩子中午学校管饭,一般天气比较凉快的时候,我们都是自己带饭,在店里用热水热热就吃。今天中午带的是韭菜炒鸡蛋,茄子焖豆角。安远估计是饿坏了,早饭也没吃,还干了一上午活,几口就把饭扒光了。我一看,赶紧把自己那份分了一些给他。吃完午饭,稍微收拾完,我让安远在角落里找了个地儿打打盹,歇会儿。

    At nine or ten o’clock, soon after the uncles and aunties left, my husband came back riding on the tricycle, with goods purchased. He was so tired for carrying so much and I hurried to give him tower and a cup of water for a little relaxation. We unloaded the goods busily. As soon as we finished, it is almost noon, so we lost no time to put a lunch box in a pot of hot water to cook. In order to save money, and the school provide meal for our children, we both brought meal here ourselves when it was very cool and cooked it in the hot water before eating. At noon today, we brought Chinese chive fried with egg and mad apple stewed with bean. I’m afraid that Anyuan was hungry as heck for he had worked for a whole morning without having breakfast. He ate up very soon, and I shared some of mine with him at once. After lunch, I asked Anyuan to take a nap and have a rest somewhere at the corner after putting things in order.

    下午的生意一般,零零散散的有几个顾客,那个经常过来打电话回家的外乡小伙又到店里来打长途电话了,还有几个人来买了洗发水、香皂什么的,很快就到了下班的时候。这时候一般是生意最好的时候。大家都从店里买面买米还有一些七七八八的调料什么的带回家做饭,渐渐地,能闻到饭菜的香味了。中中和彬彬放学也到店里来了,我家孩子们上学近,所以我们比较放心让他们上下学。照例让他们在门口摆了张小凳子开始做作业,怕他们饿,给他们塞了两片饼干什么的。我们一般要到十点店里关门了才回家做饭,所以这段时间孩子们也只能靠饼干充充饥。我们其实也很心疼,孩子们是长身体的时候,但是要照顾生意,确实没办法,只能先应付着了。

    The business in the afternoon was usual with only two or three customers. The guy from other place came to our shop to make a long distance call, just like usual. Some other people came to buy shampoo, perfumed soap. Soon it was time to be off duty when the business is always the best. Many people bought rice and some sundry goods such as ingredient from our shop for cooking. Gradually we can smell the bouquet of meal. Zhang Jinzhong and Liu Bin also came to our shop. My children’s school is near here, so we don’t worry about their going to school themself and going back alone. Habitually we let them place a taboret and begin to do homework. I gave them several pieces of biscuit for fear that they be hungry. We are used to coming back home to cook at ten o’clock when our shop is closed, so the children can only allay their hunger with biscuit. We are in fact very sorry about it for it’s time for the children to grow. But we shall care for our business, and there is no way but do like this temporarily.

    在忙忙碌碌中,夜晚很快就降临了。街灯一盏一盏的亮了,别人家里的灯光也都暖洋洋地从一扇扇窗口映了出来。关上店门,我一手牵着孩子,背着另一个孩子,一手拉着丈夫的手,四个人慢慢走着回家。这是一天中最快乐的时光,虽然我心里知道,月底了,店面和住的房子的租金都该付了,也该给家里寄点钱回去了,孩子们下学期的赞助费和借读费还得筹;我也知道,明天,后天,还有无数个明天、后天,迎接我的依然是劳碌和辛苦,但是,能牵着我最亲的人的手,平平安安地走在回家的路上,对于我来说,这正是我最想要的幸福。不图什么大富大贵,只要丈夫能够健健康康,孩子们能够茁壮成长就足够了。看着四个人在地上长长短短、远远近近的影子,我想,幸福真的无处不在,她就在我们身旁,就在我们每一个热爱生活的人的心底里。好好经营生活的每一天,愿我自己,我爱的人,和爱我的人们都能够永远幸福。

    As we were busy with business, the night fell. The street lights got bright one by one and the warm light shined out from windows of others’ family. After closing the door of our shop, I brought one child by the hand, carried the other child and pulled my husband beside me to walk to our home slowly. It was the happiest moment in the day, and though I knew that at the end of the month, the rent of the shop and the house ought to be paid, moreover, it’s time to transfer money back to our family at hometown. The money of sponsorship and the fee of children’s study in the next term shall be collected; I also knew that tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and innumerable tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, what is waiting for me is still working hard and hardship, but for me, pulling the hands of my most intimate men and walking on the way to my home are the happiness I want most. I don’t seek great wealth and splendor. Only if my husband can be healthy and my children can thrive, I can be satisfied. At seeing  the long or short, far or near shade of our four on the ground, I thought the blessing and happiness is not elsewhere but with us, at the bottom of every person who loves life.  Live a good life everyday, and I hope the person I love, the person who loves me and myself will be happy for ever.
