在爷爷去世后的十月,我种了一些郁金香、水仙、雪花莲、番红花及蓝铃花每一个花苞对我来说都是一种安慰,都是给爷爷的一份爱,都是春天的一份承诺 A promise of springEarly in the spring, about a month bee my grandpa's stroke, I began walking an hour every afternoon. Some days I would walk four blocks south to see Grandma and Grandpa. At eighty-six, Grandpa was still quite a gardener, so I always watched his earliest blooms and each new wave of spring flowers.I was especially interested in flowers that year because I was planning to landscape my own yard and I was eager to get Grandpa's advice. I thought I knew pretty much what I wanted — a yard full of bushes and plants that would bloom from May till November.It was right after the first rush of purple violets in the lawns and the sudden blaze of sythia that spring that Grandpa had a stroke. It left him without speech and with no movement on his left side. The whole family rallied to Grandpa. We all spent many hours by his side. Some days his eyes were eloquent — laughing at our reported mishaps, listening alertly, revealing painful awareness of his inability to care himself. There were days, too, when he slept most of the time, overcome with the weight of his approaching death.As the months passed, I watched the growing earth with Grandpa's eyes. Each time I was with him, I gave him a garden report. He listened, gripping my hand with the sure strength and calm he had always had. But he could not answer my questions. The new flowers would blaze, peak, fade, and die bee I knew their names.Grandpa's illness held him through the spring and on, week by week, through summer. I began spending hours at the local nursery, studying and choosing seeds and plants. It gave me special joy to buy plants I had seen in Grandpa's garden and give them humble starts in my own garden. I discovered Sweet William, which I had admired years in Grandpa's garden without knowing its name. And I planted it in his honor.As I waited and watched in the garden and by Grandpa's side, some quiet truths emerged. I realized that Grandpa loved flowers that were always bloom; he kept a full bed of roses in his garden. But I noticed that Grandpa left plenty of room the brief highlights. Not every nook of his garden was constantly in bloom. There was always a treasured surprise tucked somewhere.I came to see, too, that Grandpa's garden mirrored his life. He was a hard worker who understood the law of the harvest. But along with his hard work, Grandpa knew how to enjoy each season, each change. We often teased him about his life history. He had written two paragraphs summarizing fifty years of work, and a full nine pages about every trip and vacation he'd ever taken.In July, Grandpa worsened. One hot afternoon arrived when no one else was at his bedside. He was glad to have me there, and reached out his hand to pull me close.I told Grandpa what I had learned — that few flowers last from April to November. Some of the most beautiful bloom only a month at most. To really enjoy a garden, you have to plant corners and drifts and rows of flowers that will bloom and grace the garden, each in its own season. His eyes listened to every word. Then, another discovery "If I want a garden like yours, Grandpa, I'm going to have to work." His grin laughed at me, and his eyes teased me."Grandpa, in your life right now the chrysanthemums are in bloom. Chrysanthemums and roses." Tears clouded both our eyes. Neither of us feared this last flower of fall, but the wait spring seems longest in November. We knew how much we would miss each other.Sitting there, I suddenly felt that the best gift I could give Grandpa would be to give voice to the testimony inside both of us. He had never spoken of his testimony to me, but it was such a part of his life that I had never questioned if Grandpa knew. I knew he knew."Grandpa," I began — and his grip tightened as if he knew what I was going to say — "I want you to know that I have a testimony. I know the Savior lives. I bear witness to you that Joseph Smith is a prophet. I love the Restoration and joy in it." The steadiness in Grandpa's eyes told how much he felt it too. "I bear witness that President Kimball is a prophet. I know the Book of Mormon is true, Grandpa. Every part of me bears this witness.""Grandpa," I added quietly, "I know our Father in Heaven loves you." Unbidden, unexpected, the Spirit bore comting, poignant testimony to me of our Father's love my humble, quiet Grandpa.A tangible sense of Heavenly Father's compassionate awareness of Grandpa's suffering surrounded us and held us. It was so personal and powerful that no words were left to me — only tears of gratitude and humility, tears of comt.Grandpa and I wept together.It was the end of August when Grandpa died, the end of summer. As we were choosing flowers from the florist Grandpa's funeral, I slipped away to Grandpa's garden and walked with my memories of columbine and Sweet William. Only the tall lavender and white phlox were in bloom now, and some baby's breath in another corner.On impulse, I cut the prettiest strands of phlox and baby's breath and made one more arrangement the funeral. When they saw it, friends and family all smiled to see Grandpa's flowers there. We all felt how much Grandpa would have liked that.The October after Grandpa's death, I planted tulip and daffodil bulbs, snowdrops, crocuses, and bluebells. Each bulb was a comt to me, a love sent to Grandpa, a promise of spring.更多美文请欣赏:On peace of mind 宁静的心灵 Hour in the Sun 阳光下的时光The Strenuous Life 艰辛的人生 0195好好学习天天向上用英语怎么说 --1 3:18:9 来源: 好好学习天天向上用英语怎么说中式英语是特别的语言现象,发生在生活中可能造成一些小尴尬,会令人捧腹大笑,甚至有一些中式英语表达被世界接受,成功“转正”,但是小编同样要提醒参加英语考试的考生不要因为语法错误影响了成绩“好好学习,天天向上”在中国可谓是老幼皆知,早些年,有人将至翻译为“Good good study day day up”这样的翻译曾经位列“十大最搞笑中式英语”的头名,被很多人传为笑谈其正确的翻译应该是:Study well(hard) and make progress every day.英语语法,指英语中语言的结构规律,轻则无法正确地表达想要说明的内容,严重时差之毫厘谬以千里,尤其在英语考试中,保语法正确更是一件分厂重要的事情,研究生入学考试马上就要开始,你的语法基础扎实么? 好好学习天天向上用英语怎么说在家中的生活习惯用语 -- :57: 来源: 我经常下班以后运动I usually work out after work. *work out“训练,运动”I usually go to the gym after work.I usually exercise after work.我开始慢跑锻炼Ive started jogging.Ive started jogging.

An October SunriseI was up the next morning bee the October sunrise, and away through the wild and the woodland. The rising of the sun was noble in the cold and warmth of it peeping down the sp of light, he raised his shoulder heavily over the edge of grey mountain and wavering length of upland. Beneath his gaze the dew-fogs dipped, and crept to crept to the hollow places; then stole away in line and column, holding skirts, and clinging subtly at the sheltering corners where rock hung over grassland, while the brave lines of the hills came th, one beyond other gliding. The woods arose in folds, like drapery of awakened mountains, stately with a depth of awe, and memory of the tempests. Autumn’s mellow hand was upon them, as they owned aly, touched with gold and red and olive, and their joy towards the sun was less to a bridegroom than a father.Yet bee the floating impress of the woods could clear it self, suddenly the gladsome light leaped over hill and valley, casting amber, blue, and purple, and a tint of rich red rose; according to the scene they lit on, and the curtain flung around; yet all alike dispelling fear and the cloven hoof of darkness, all on the wings of hope advancing, and proclaiming, “God is here!” then life and joy sprang reassured from every crouching hollow; every flower, and bud and bird had a fluttering sense of them; and all the flashing of God’s gaze merged into soft beneficence.So, perhaps, shall break upon us that eternal morning, when crag and chasm shall be no more, neither hill and valley, nor great unvintaged ocean; but all things shall arise, and shine in the light of the Father’s countenance, because itself is risen. 6766

Yousuf Kansh In Search of Greatness Yousuf Karsh,the Canadian portrait artist who photographed many of the most influential figures of the th century,died in a Boston hospital on July ,after complications following surgery.He was 93.Working from a studio in Ottawa,Karsh produced famous portraits of such subjects as Winston Churchill,John F.Kennedy,Nikita Khrushchev,Fidel Castro,Ernest Hemingway and Albert Einstein.Actually he has become almost as famous as his legendary1) subjects.In the latest edition of Who's Who,which listed the most notable people of the last century,Karsh was the only Canadian of the 0 famous people listed--51 of whom Karsh had photographed.Karsh was praised as a master portraitist,often working in black and white,influenced by great painters of the past.He was famous talking to his subjects as he was getting the shot's composition just right,asking them questions and putting them at ease.He confesses that he continues to feel more challenged when “portraying) true greatness adequately with my camera.” In preparation,he s as much as he can about the person bee the sitting,but avoids having a preconceived3) idea of how he would photograph the subject.Rather he seeks,as he wrote in Karsh Portfolio in 1967,to capture the “essential element which has made them great,”explaining,“All I know is that within every man and woman a secret is hidden,and as a photographer it is my task to reveal it if I can.The revelation,if it comes at all,will come in a small fraction of a second with an unconscious gesture,a gleam of the eye,a brief lifting of the mask that all human swear to conceal their innermost) selves from the world.In that fleeting interval of opporty the photographer must act or lose his prize.”Yousuf Karsh was born in Armenia in 19 and grew up under the horrors of the Armenian massacres5).His photographer uncle,George Nakash,brought him to Canada in 19 and sent him to Boston in 19 to apprentice with John Garo,an outstanding photographer.He not only taught Karsh the technical processes used by photographic artists of the period but also prepared him to think himself and evolve his own distinctive interpretations.Four years later,he set up his studio in Ottawa.In December of 191,his memorable portrait of a glowering,defiant6) Winston Churchill,which symbolized Britain's indomitable7) wartime courage,brought Karsh into international prominence.Canada's Prime Minister Mackenzie King arranged Karsh to photograph Churchill following Churchill's speech in the House of Commons.Not ewarned,Churchill lit up a cigar and growled,“Why was I not told of this?”but consented to a brief session.Karsh asked him to remove the cigar and,when he didn't,stepped ward and gently removed it with the comment,“give me,Sir.”Churchill glowered as the shot was taken,then permitted Karsh to take still another,jokingly commenting,“You can even make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed.”The Churchill portrait has since app eared in publications and on commemorative8) stamps all over the world.Karsh traveled to London in 193 with his portable studio--an 8× view camera and many studio lamps to photograph such notables as George Bernard Shaw,the Archbishop of Canterbury,and the royal family.Years later these timeless photographs are joined by portraits of such statesmen,artists,and movie stars as Laurence Olivier ,Pablo Picasso,Frank Lloyd Wright,and Clark Gable.All these portraits illustrate Karsh's ability to capture the essence of his sitter9). 1956
