Last Sunday was quite a good day with beautiful sunshine. When I was walking in Haikou Park, accidently I found a forieigner walking with his dog. I thought it was a good chance for me to practice my oral english, thus I went apporach to him and introduce myself to him first. He was quite a nice person and he told me his name is Smith.Green. He comes from England to China and He has already lived in Hainan for more than 2 years. We talk lasts for about 20 minutes. We talked about the weather and interesting places in Hainan. I also asked him to give me some advice about how to learn english. He mentioned that listening and speaking are quite important for a student, and thus practice is quite important as well,
I think it was quite a good experience to talk with a foreigner, through which it could improve not only my oral english, but also the skills of making friends. Moreover, I also could gain some knowledge about western culture.
we are supposed to express our gratitude to others on thanksgiving day. however, we should feel gratitude every day.
god has two dwellings, one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart. be grateful to others is a way to show your love. in our daily life, we often receive help from our parents, friends, colleagues and strangers. perhaps it is a little thing, pick up the pen you drop, lift a heavy box for you or offer you a seat in the bus. we should be thankful to them for whatever they have done. the more love you give, the more love you receive.
a sense of gratitude can acknowledging our interdependent existence. you will be ready to help others if you have a thankful heart. therefore, a thankful heart is like a magnet. not only will we attract more things to be grateful for, but also we will attract gratitude from others. “give thanks a little and you will find a lot.”
gratitude is heaven itself. a sense of gratitude and indebtedness to others is and important wellspring of a generous and virtuous life. we now fall into a busy life, neglecting to be grateful for details, the beauty of nature, the comforts of modern living ,the love of parents and so on. people can notice these details and realize the friendship, love and happiness in our life with a grateful heart.
