GLORIOUS ACTS OF RAVISHING KINDNESS

(FOR A FRIEND FEELING FLATTENED)

值得称颂的行为,因善行而喜乐

(会让朋友感到高兴的)

When they open their front door,waggle a bunch of happy golden sunflowers around it; there is no other flower so guaranteed to spark a smile.

当你的朋友打开前门,看到一束幸福的金色向阳花在他面前晃动;再没有其他的花朵能保证让他绽放微笑了。

Seize the initiative. Run a bath, light a scented candle and place a portable CD player nearby, along with a stack of magaznes. Command your friend to disappear into the bathroom and not come out for a very long time.

抓住主动权。给浴缸放水,点一支香氛蜡烛,在一叠杂志旁放一部便携cd机。要求你的朋友进到浴室去,过很久才能出来。

Offer to look after children for a couple of hours. Tell the mother to go away and indulge herself- and that means out of the house, completely removed from her world. Even if it's something as simple as sitting in a cafe and reading a magzine and dreaming. Disengagement can be tremendously therapeutic.

愿意帮忙看几个小时的小孩。让这位母亲可以离开放纵自己一下-那意味着离开家,完全的从她的世界中搬离。就算只是坐在咖啡馆,看看杂志,做做白日梦这样简单的事。从家庭琐事中解脱对身心健康是十分有益的。

Attack dishes in a sink.

清洗水槽中的碗碟。

Always offer a bed to sleep on, even if it's cushions on the floor. Never deny a friend a roof over their head.

总是要给朋友提供一张床,即使是一张铺在地板上的软垫也可以。绝对不要将朋友拒之门外。

Scrub the shower if you're staying at someone's place.

(Well,yes, this could be taking things a little far but a friend did it for me once, in gratitude for a stay, and I've never forgotten it.)

如果你住在别人的地方,沐浴后要把浴室打扫干净。(这个要求也许有点过分,但一位为了感谢我让他留宿的朋友曾经做过一次,之后我就没有忘记这件事。)

Drop a line to a friend if you haven't heard from them for a while, a quick text or an email, especially in times of communal contract like Christmas. If a silence feels too withheld, remember that people who are hurting tend to have the desire to hibernate. They could be lying low and licking their wounds. It's often at times like these when a hand of friendship is most needed.

给久未联系的朋友写封信,传一个简短的信息或者发一个电邮,尤其是像圣诞节这样的公共假期。如果你感觉没有回信是拒人于千里之外,记得那些受伤的人都有冬眠的倾向。他们可能正俯下身子舔舐他们的伤口。往往在这个时候友谊之手是最需要的。

'I count myself in nothing else so happy as in a soul rememb' ring my good friends.'

William Shakespeare

我觉得没有什么比在心里想起你个好朋友更让人高兴的了。

莎士比亚
