  Ever since I was little, my favorite season was winter. I loved to play in the snow and enjoy the hot chocolate.

  打小时候起,我最喜欢的季节就是冬天。我喜欢在雪里玩,喜欢喝热巧克力。

  Unfortunately, winter never gave me the special gift of snow on my birthday. The snow disappeared before my birthday and started after it.

  遗憾的是,冬天从没在我生日那天送给我特别的礼物——雪。我生日来临前雪就没了,生日过后却又下了起来。

  I would ask my grandmother why it didn’t snow on my birthday. She would laugh and tell me I asked too many questions. But one day, she promised that she would make it snow on my next birthday. I thanked her.

  我会问我祖母为什么我生日那天不下雪。她听了就会笑起来,并说我问题太多。可有一天,她许诺在我下一次生日的时候,她要让老天下雪。我谢了她。

  That year, before my birthday, my grandmother died. I was at an emotional loss, but angry because she had promised me to make it snow. The day of my sixth birthday, I woke up and ran to the window, hoping to see just one snowflake. Unfortunately, there was no snow. I cried and cried all day because my grandmother had let me down.

  那年,我的生日还没到,我的祖母就过世了。我很伤心,但又感到生气,因为她答应我要让老天下雪的。六岁生日那天,我醒后就跑到窗前,希望能看到哪怕一片雪花。遗憾的是,没有下雪。我哭了一整天,因为我的祖母让我失望了。

  Before my birthday every year, I would pray for snow but it never came. I felt mad at my grandmother; she had broken a promise.

  每年我的生日到来之前,我都祈祷着下雪,可雪从没在那天下过。我对我祖母很生气,因为她违背了诺言。

  By my sixteenth birthday, I had lost all hope of getting my snow, even though I still wished for it. During my party, I had the best time ever! I enjoyed the company of my friends and family, and I was truly happy.

  到了我16 岁生日时,尽管我仍然渴望有雪,但我已不抱任何希望了。在整个生日聚会过程中,我过得前所未有的开心,和朋友及家人在一起让我感到非常快乐与幸福。

  I was outside with a friend when she asked me if I was having a good time. I told her I was having the best time ever. Then I saw the white snow falling all around. I became like a little child on Christmas morning as I ran around screaming and laughing. I was so excited that my friends looked at me as if I were crazy, and I think I was. They asked me if I had ever seen snow before, and I laughed and said that I had, but this was special snow. They all laughed at me, but I didn’t care.

  我和一位朋友在屋外时,她问我是否玩得开心。我告诉她我过得前所未有的开心。随后,我看到白雪在四周落下。我四处跑啊、叫啊、笑啊,变得就像一个圣诞节早上的小孩一样。我激动得不得了,我的朋友们都看着我,就好像我疯了。现在想想,那时我是疯了。他们问我以前见过雪没有,我大笑着说见过,不过这是场特别的雪。他们都笑我,可我不在乎。

  When I got home, my grandpa told me he had a gift for me. I was confused because he had already given me my gift. He gave me a small white box that had snowflake wrapping on it. The box looked old, and it was turning a little yellow. I asked him what it was and he told me to stop asking so many questions and just open it. I did, and nestled in white paper was a crystal snowflake with a card that said, “Happy Birthday.”

  我回家后,我的祖父对我说他有件礼物给我。我糊涂了,因为他已经给过我礼物了。他给了我一个包装纸上有雪花图案的小白盒。盒子显旧,有点发黄。我问他那是什么,他要我别再发问,打开盒子就是了。我打开盒子,看见半隐半现在白纸中的是一片水晶雪花和一张写着“生日快乐”的贺卡。

  I asked my grandfather how this could be. He told me that it was my grandmother’s final wish to give me this on my “sweet sixteenth.” I cried and hugged him, although he didn’t understand. I said a silent prayer to my smiling grandmother angel who I was certain was, and always had been, watching over me.

  我问我祖父这是怎么回事。他告诉我说,我祖母的临终愿望是在我“愉快的16 岁生日”之际给我这份礼物。我流下了眼泪,拥抱了他,尽管他不明白前因后果。我向我面带微笑的天使般的祖母默默祈祷,我肯定她正护佑着我。她一直护佑着我。
