Face the Life with Smile
When my family came to the United Stated as new immigrants, we faced many problems in the strange place. Renting and go to college has been become important things. So I have to go to work. Luckily, I found a job when the financial crisis occurred in the United Stated. I worked as a cashier at a supermarket. My originally opinion was became work-study students, and I was going to quit job if I had enough school fee. Busing work made me reduced to go to school times. I gradually thought study was not important for me. New job also was very helpful for my pay and let my family life has improved. But this type of life had changed after one time talking with a old lady.That talking changed my life and gave me a unforgettable experience .
Even if I was a temporary worker, but I usually work harder than other cashiers. I was grateful for this job that I always helped customers with carried groceries in my free time. During the Chinese New Year, Busy always become supermarket substitution. I saw a small lady when she turned. She was shopping many groceries at that time. I knew she wants my help. But there were many customers waiting for me. So she did not ask for any help. I felt so bad feeling because I haven’t helped. Then, I was happy when the manger loudly said:“ Xiao go to lunch.” I went to find old lady and push her shopping car went to parking lot. I prepared to leave when I put all groceries in her car. She grasps of my hand who gave me twenty dollars. She did not looks like a rich woman. This is reason why I did not accept her money. She said: “buying some stationery after the new semester. Young must go to college. You never gave up study when you worked. This kind of working can not change your life. You had better spent more time for college. The old lady gave me many pieces of suggest.I perfunctorily promise to her. I guilty that I have been lost my goal. After long time ago, I still remember her repeat word:“Knowledge changes destiny.” But her action and word is what I thought was impassion. I heard this theory for my parents more than once, but a strange lady made me feel more warmth in my heart.
I immediately quited job who back to college. I did not saw her again. In my impression, she always keep smile. Her word likes a drop of sunshine lighted my way of future. I had completed confidence in her word. This kind of smile stands a person face to life for confidence and look forward to future. Sometimes we ran into trouble, the new immigration must have a large of stress in the life. I only insist on that using a smile to facing life we would win the future.
