生活并不是一尘不变(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室

With two teenage boys and three little boys around, our family is in perpetual motion — to the baseball diamond, athletic field, piano lessons, and the Bible club. Even though we’ve limited each boy’s activities and try our best to defend our family time, it seems that we’re still in a constant state of flight.

“Embrace it. Roll with it,” my husband, Lonny, says. “It’s going to be like this for a while.”

He’s right. It’s likely that life will continue to rush forward at full speed before it slows down. But I still missed the still, quiet days that our family used to enjoy. I missed long walks through the park when we clutched the boys’ little hands and comfortably felt the sun on our shoulders. I longed for lazy Saturday afternoons under the oak in our backyard, where our boys built castles of sand. I wanted to go back a few years, when busyness was the exception and not the rule.

One night, after a particularly full and busy day, our family gathered on the porch for some ice cream. Two adults, two teens, and three small boys enjoyed themselves on one old swing and in a couple of rocking chairs.

We were together, in one place, for a short time.

The moon was full and bright. The Mississippi River, flowing past our home, was as smooth as glass. The creak of the swing was the only sound. Lonny casually draped his arm across my shoulder in the most comfortable way. I wrapped my own arms around the son who sat on my lap and breathed deeply to inhale this little boy’s scent (气味) — dirt and sweat and a hint of tide. My heart was still and content.

I suddenly realized that though life sometimes may drive us crazy, God is still faithful to provide his blessings along the way. They may look different than before, but they are still there — even if they’re just in the form of a single moment on the porch. Maybe I just needed the eyes to see.

Thinking:

1. How did the author feel while sitting on the porch with the family that night?

2. The underlined word “inhale” in Paragraph 6 probably means?
