On Every fine and comfortable morning, on the path which I sent my son to go to his kindergarten, I always saw the neighbor live in the first who was a more than 50 years old woman. She always pushed her old mother sitting in wheelchair to come out basking in the sunshine. The old mother was worm real tight, in addition there was a military overcoat covered her legs.
“Mom, is this uphill path or downhill path?” The woman always repeated this question every time. “Downhill path.” The old mother definitely answered. “How many times was I repeated, when we come out from home, there is a uphill path. When we finish this path, we just arrive kindergarten, then it is a downhill path, so we just arrive our home.” The woman explained patiently.
Sometimes the woman went to market, post-office, she also took her old mother on her side, just like a young mother pushed baby vehicle going out for an airing. The old mother’s face always hadn’t any expression_r. When they arrived a place, the woman always introduced her mother their place, so that teasing the old mother speak.
On a fine winter day, when I read my son stories book on our balcony, I heard the neighbor who live in the first layer was speaking to her old mother, ” Mom, this is your favorite sweet orange.” I saw following the voice, the woman put an orange into her old mother’s hands, but unexpectedly, the orange was dropped down. The woman smiled helplessly. She picked up the orange, peeled, and fed to her old mother’s mouth.
……
It was another fine morning. I sent my little son to his kindergarten as usual. I saw the woman pushing the wheelchair from her home again, there was only the military overcoat. The woman put the overcoat on a shining rope. A black armband on her left arm which told me silently, that baby liked old mother sitting in wheelchair who went to God.

It is good that she took care of her mother when she was old and could not take care of herself any longer. It is far too common in the west to ship your parents to a place where strangers take care of them until they die. One of the things that bothers me about my own culture is that we do not show our love for our parents by helping to care for them in old age the way they cared for us as children. It is the natural cycle of life.

Thank you to read my forum topic.
I just try to write a common thing in English language.
My mother is 72 years old. She cookes for me these day. My granny is 96 years old, she is still flexible now, read newspaper everyday. I think that they are my wealth. I need them to share my achievements.

I think part of the problem in the west is because poor family relationships are so common. I mean high divorce rate and single parents who must work until their late years to support themselves and children. Plus the stigma in the west that children should leave home at a certain maximum age. In China, adults often stay with their parents until they are married, even as late as age 40. In western culture, this just isn't socially acceptable, which I believe is nonsense.

I know deeply that there is a kind of love in the world which is in order to leaving. In fact, my son is very independent now. He is a freshman in an University now, and he is less than 18 years old. His school is so far away from us. He has lots of friends. I think that family relationships are not bound to poor or rich. Common Chinese men and women who all must work until their late years to support themselves and children, whoever it is.
