A person worthy of our respect does not pretend to exaggerate to do a big thing, but is selfless and fearless in his devotion; a person worthy of our respect can see his character from a small thing. It is not only when you do something amazing that you will be respected by others, but from small things, everything starts from small.

A person worthy of our respect does not pretend to exaggerate to do a big thing, but is selfless and fearless in his devotion; a person worthy of our respect can see his character from a small thing. It is not only when you do something amazing that you will be respected by others, but from small things, everything starts from small.

And what makes me feel respected is not someone else, but my mother-in-law who is over 60 years old.

My mother-in-law cares for me in every way, so where do I begin? Let's start with the winter of that year! I remember that cold winter, outside the north wind howling, the trees are partly withered, and the home is also the same cold, I want to eat, cold shivering, I am full of goosebumps, I just want to quickly finish eating, to the nest, my mother-in-law looked at me as if to see my mind, but I did not notice, and usually more active she did not say a word, just silent, I began to think it was too cold today I began to think that it was a cold day and that my mother-in-law was not even willing to talk. I saw my mother-in-law sitting on the bed, he warmly greeted me to go to bed, I looked at the bed, there seems to be someone just slept there, there is a nest, I did not care, I got into the nest, I found that it was warm, I felt I felt indescribably happy, and my mother-in-law saw me smiling and also smiled happily. Six months later, I will think about this matter, the more I think about it, the more wrong: a mother-in-law is a clean person, he usually gets up in the morning will be folded sheets, the more I think about the more wrong but never have an idea, so this winter, I will go to find out, I pretend to be cold, mother-in-law saw, also made the same thing as before, he finished eating and immediately went into the house, mother-in-law went in about half a minute, I took advantage of grandfather did not notice slipped into the house, I saw from the doorway is the nest of mother-in-law warm, suddenly two lines of tears, from my eyes, I held back the tears, quickly finished eating, into the nest, narrowing the voice to only you can hear the sound of softly crying ......

In addition to this incident, there was a day in the middle of summer ...... I have always hated and been afraid of bugs, every night I was afraid to go to sleep, afraid of a bug in my nose, and even if a bug touched me I would wake up. When my mother-in-law saw this, she said to me, "Go to sleep! There will be absolutely no bugs, I promise, we'll pull the plug!" Hearing my mother-in-law's words, I was relieved. In the middle of the night, I slept sweetly, and when I got up the next day, I was full of energy and abundance, while my mother-in-law, who had never slept, slept today, and I didn't care much. For several days in a row, time and time again, I gradually felt that something was wrong, I was ready to get up at night to see what, in the end, my mother-in-law did, I have been propped up without sleep, suddenly, my mother-in-law moved and then sat up, I saw this quickly closed my eyes and pretended that I was asleep, I false eyes, my mother-in-law looked at me, as if I had something on my face, he did not say anything, with his hands gently popped the bugs off my face, then, she lay down again After a while, I was sleepy-eyed, about to fall asleep, which is the mother-in-law up again, look at my face and no bugs, so that every few minutes up to see once, at once, I felt my nose sore, an indescribable touch, flowing in my heart, I secretly resolved that I must repay my mother-in-law ......

I admire my mother-in-law and her selflessness, she is my relative, moreover the closest relative, and the relative who cares about me a lot ......
