She had beenshopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, thisbeautiful brown haired, freckle-faced image of innocence. It was pouringoutside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much ina hurry to hit the earth, it has no time to flow down the spout.

她和妈妈刚在沃尔玛结束购物。这个天真的小女孩应该6岁大了,头发是美丽的棕色,脸上有雀斑。外面下着滂沱大雨。雨水溢满了檐槽,来不及排走,就如饥似渴地涌涨上地面。

We all stoodthere under the awning and just inside the door of the Wal-Mart. We allwaited, some patiently, others irritated, because nature messed up theirhurried day. I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I get lost in the soundand sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memoriesof running, splashing so carefree as a child come pouring in as a welcome reprievefrom the worries of my day.

我们都站在沃尔玛门口的遮篷下。大家都在等待,有人很耐心,有人很烦躁,因为老天在给他们本已忙碌的一天添乱。雨天总引起我的遐思。我出神地听着、看着老天冲刷洗涤这世界的污垢和尘埃,孩时无忧无虑地在雨中奔跑玩水的记忆汹涌而至,暂时缓解了我一天的焦虑。

Her voicewas so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in,“Mom, let's run through the rain." she said.

小女孩甜美的声音打破了这令人昏昏欲睡的气氛,妈妈,我们在雨里跑吧。她说。

"What?"Mom asked.

什么?”母亲问。

"Let'srun through the rain!" She repeated.

我们在雨里跑吧,她重复。

"No,honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit." Mom replied.

不,亲爱的,我们等雨小一点再走。母亲回答说。

This youngchild waited about another minute and repeated: "Mom, let's run throughthe rain."

过了一会小女孩又说:妈妈,我们跑出去吧。

"We'll getsoaked if we do." Mom said.

这样的话我们会湿透的。母亲说。

"No, wewon't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning," the young girl said asshe tugged at her Mom's arm."

不会的,妈妈。你今天早上不是这样说的。小女孩一边说一边拉着母亲的手。

"Thismorning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?"

今天早上?我什么时候说过我们淋雨不会湿啊?”

"Don'tyou remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, If Godcan get us through this, he can get us through anything!"

你不记得了吗?你和爸爸谈他的癌症时,你不是说如果上帝让我们闯过这一关,那我们就没有什么过不去。’”

The entirecrowd stopped dead silent. I swear you couldn't hear anything but the rain. Weall stood silently. No one came or left in the next few minutes. Mom paused andthought for a moment about what she would say.

人群一片悄然默默。我发誓,除雨声,你什么都听不到。我们都静静地站着。接下来的几分钟没有一小我私家走动。母亲停了一下,想着应该说些什么。

Now somewould laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore whatwas said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life. Timewhen innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith."Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If get wet,well maybe we just needed washing." Mom said. Then off they ran.

有人也许会对此一笑了之,或者责备这孩子的不懂事,有人甚至不把她的话放在心上。但这却是一个小孩子一生中需要被肯定的时候。若受到鼓舞,此时孩子单纯的信任就会发展成为坚定的信念。亲爱的,你说得对,我们跑过去吧。如果淋湿了,那也许是因为我们切实其实需要冲洗一下了。母亲说。然后她们就冲出去了。

We all stoodwatching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and they held theirshopping bags over their heads just in case. They got soaked. But they werefollowed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to theircars. And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing. Circumstances orpeople can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money,and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your preciousmemories. So, don't forget to make time and take the opportunities to makememories every day!

我们站在那里,笑着看她们飞快地跑过停着的汽车。她们把购物袋高举过头想挡挡雨,但还是湿透了。好几小我私家像孩子般尖叫着,大笑着,也跟着冲了出去,奔向自己的车子。当然,我也这样做了,跑了出去,淋湿了。我也需要接受洗礼。环境或其他人可以夺去你的物质财富,抢走你的金钱,带走你的健康,但没有人可以带走你珍贵的回忆。因此,记得要抓紧时间,抓住机会每天都给自己留下一些回忆吧

Toeverything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. I hopeyou still take the time to run through the rain.

世间万物皆有自己的季节,做任何事情也有一个恰当的时机。希望你有机会在雨中狂奔一回。
