A pet your family

Do you have pets? I have a cute little dog at home.
To have pets is to learn how to love.
Loving is giving.
Pets can't live without our love.
We have to take care of their lives.
We have to give them food every day.
We have to care about their health when they look sick or are sick.
Sometimes it is hard for us to take a family trip with our pets,
and someone in the family has to be with them at home.
And pets can't speak a word.

Then why do we have pets?

We give them our time and energy.
We spend money on them.
We give up our own fun for them sometimes.
But we are happy.
We find happiness in giving things to them and we find that we receive many things from them without knowing it.

Pets give us wonderful and important chances for us to remember
and learn in our lives.

Do you have a chance to touch another's hands with love?
Do you have a chance to hold others tight with love?
Do you have a chance to give sweet kisses to others with love?
Do you have someone to tell everything in your heart?
Do you have a chance to learn how important life is and to feel how sad it is when someone you love dies?
Those chances don't happen to us so often in our daily lives
and not in this direct way.

It is wonderful for us to be with others, even if they are pets.
They welcome us and rush towards us when we come back home.
Even when you go to bed, they want to be with you.
And they are so cute. They are really cute.
They are just like us.
If you don't have any pets,
don't miss the chances to love 'someone' as your own family.


上記の長文は、中3の長文読解に出てきた英文です。
とてもいいテーマだなと毎年感じていたので、ここにご紹介します。
あえて訳はしないでおきます。
じっくり考え、感じながら読んでいただけたらとおもいます。
(ミステイクがあったらおしえてくださいね...)
そして、もうひとつ→【朝日新聞記事】もどうぞ!(こちらは日本語ですよ...)

心を育てることが今一番大切なことではないだろうか?
いくらお勉強ができても、心が育っていなければねぇ。。。

どうぶつは「こころ」を教えてくれてるはずなのに。。。

人間として、カラダ・あたま・こころがバランスよく育つことを大事にしたいです。



さて、さて…
うちの中3生徒たちは、無事に第一志望校に合格しました~~~^^
おめでとう!!!!!
よくがんばりましたね。おつかれさま。
高校生になっても、今のその三つのバランスを保ちながら、
じぶんの大きな夢に向かって、さらに成長していって下さい!
そして、それぞれの持つリーダーシップを発揮していってね049.gif

そして、受験生のみなさん、
もうしばらくです。
夢はあなたがくるのをまっていますよ~~~^^058.gif
くれぐれも風邪にはご注意を!
