Sharing the Love 分享父母的愛




As the only child in her family, 10-year-old Anna never felt alone because her parents loved her a lot. She was their top priority1, so she always got her way. However, things changed when Anna's mother told her she was going to be a big sister and had to become more mature.

  Anna didn't want to share her parents' love, but after her mother delivered her baby brother, their focus shifted to him. Anna felt neglected and very jealous. One day, out of curiosity, she leaned over the crib2 and took a good look at her baby brother. He was so tiny and cute that Anna couldn't resist gently touching his chubby3 cheeks. This made him open his eyes and grin at her. At that moment, Anna's heart melted, and she never gave a second thought to sharing her parents' love.

身為家中的獨生女,十歲的安娜從不曾感到孤單,因為她的父母非常愛她。對他們而言,安娜是最重要的,所以她總是能做自己想做的事。然而,當安娜的母親告訴她她即將成為大姊姊、並要她變得更成熟時,事情開始有了變化。

  安娜並不想和別人分享父母的愛,但是自從她媽媽生下她弟弟之後,他們的注意力都轉移到他的身上。安娜覺得受到冷落,而且非常嫉妒。有一天,她出於好奇而傾身靠在嬰兒床邊,想好好看一看她的弟弟。他真的好小好可愛,因此安娜忍不住輕輕撫摸他胖嘟嘟的臉頰。這個舉動讓他睜開了眼並對著她笑了起來。就在這個時候,安娜的心融化了,她從此再也毫不遲疑地願意把父母的愛跟他分享。
