  ask 1

  Nothing touches the heart like a gift from a child, especially when kids are sending cards and letters overseas to soldiers. I know, because I once 1 about it.

  It all 2 when I got a call one morning from our local 3 asking if our son was deployed(部署) at the time. He wasnt, but I had several 4 who had deployed children. I

  5 along their contact information. About six months later, the school 6 one of my friends and told her the kindergarten classes wanted to

  7 Valentines Day (情人節) cards. She was 8 to give the teacher her sons deployment address. Her sons unit was deployed in a forward base, meaning they didnt have as many

  9 as those deployed in bigger bases. They were also 10 out of their shells and helmets because of the 11 in that location. That particular week had been cruel. Theyd 12 two hand?made bombs, and several of them had been wounded.

  Into that situation arrived a broken box from home. My friends son tried to 13 it carefully and some brightly colored envelopes tied with

  14 , came pouring out. His friends 15 around, because a box from home meant everyone got to 16 . They took turns opening the cards—one at a time—and read them out 17 . They passed around the candy, and everyone found at least one of their 18 . Instead of an evening of anxiety and fear, they were 19 home by the heartfelt Valentines Day greetings.

  I encourage you to take time to write a card, at any time, to someone far from home. You never know how your greeting may be used to

  20 someone they arent forgotten.

  Task 2

  I went for a walk with a couple of friends. We passed a playground that 1 me of a memory of long ago. It was a big playground,

  2 by tall iron fencing. Shorter fences 3 the various play areas.

  Years ago, Id 4 to put baby John in a cradle, and my husband watched Elizabeth, who was about three. After a while I noticed a crowd of 5 near one of the fences, talking aloud. I took the 6 out of his cradle and drew near. I saw my daughter was 7 with her head on one side and her body on the other side of a short fence. The adults were 8 her to turn her head one way or another to get it back through. No matter what she did, her head didnt 9 . She was stuck. Someone was about to call for

  10 .

  Perhaps it was because I came upon the scene with a pair of fresh eyes that I asked, 11 ,

  “Elizabeth, did you put your head through the

  12 , or your body?”

  “My 13 !” she answered.

  “Ah! Then 14 your body back through!”I told her. She did, and the 15 was solved. As it turns out, there are two ways your head can end up on the 16 side of the fence from your body: because you put your head through, or because you put the rest of yourself through and your head couldnt 17 .

  There are many times in life when we feel trapped, but can 18 solve them if only we look at them differently. See a problem from a

  19 way, youll find another 20 to help you figure a way out.

  Task 3

  You can always rely on the love and support of your family on your journey to develop your true potential. But few families better 1 this than the beloved China womens volleyball team coach Lang Ping and her daughter.

  Over half of young Chinese people have

  2 their parents from their social media networks. They are 3 hiding their lives and dreams away from family members. They are afraid that their parents will not be able to accept their new lifestyles and 4 and sometimes misunderstand their 5 . In doing so, they

  6 to see how many efforts parents can 7 to catch up. In fact, an honest 8 , in the end, settles the conflict and 9 trust between them. But at the same time, nearly 80 percent of parents said they were 10 to fully support their childrens life pursuits.

  This revealed(揭露) the 11 and miscommunication between the young Chinese people and their parents. Maybe now is the time for us to ask: shouldnt we start 12 our parents back into our lives, and show them our 13 ?

  Lang Ping and her daughter are 14 examples. Lang Ping will never forget how her daughter 15 her during the Rio Olympics. “At one point, our team had 16 two games, and I was under a lot of stress. My daughter

  17 found a way to get herself into the Olympic Village where she made me scrambled eggs (炒雞蛋) with tomato, my favorite Chinese dish, to 18 me up.” After that meal, Lang Ping 19 her team to fight its way back to win the championship, 20 China its first gold medal in 12 years.

  1 . But the thing I 2 most is that instant when his tiny hand curled (繚绕) around my finger so 3 . My heart was truly his from that instant on.

  The feel of his tiny hand in my fingers, imprinted on my 4 from the time when we walked here and there, 5 at the park, ran by the sea.

  As he grew, I still have photo 6 of my little boys hands working to grasp a pencil, hold a fishing pole and 7 just the right angle to

  skip (跳) a rock. Then there were his 8

  hands surrounding the wheel of his first car as he learned to 9 .

  When he grew Closer to adulthood, I can see his hands 10 those of his girlfriend, soon to be a husband. No 11 would he rush to put his hand in mine, but there were moments when hed reach out. 12 as my sons hands changed, they stayed the same.

  Then came the day when he was 13 , to be a soldier and off to war. I 14 him that day as he showed his brothers how 15 he was with his gun. His fingers moved with a mans confidence as he explained the 16 parts of the gun.

  17 he came home, those hands were older, beginning to show the wear of a life lived in service 18 his country. But still they reached out for me, now 19 a mother who had missed him so much.

  We lived in a house with a very steep flight of stairs 4 up from the front door to a landing outside the bedroom. Across the landing from the bedroom was the bathroom. Perhaps Id walked to the 5 in my sleep, without expectation that I would 6 over on the way out.

  Carl, my husband, 7 I wasnt beside him. As he reached the top of the 8 , our friend Kate, who was also staying that night, came out from my daughters room. When Carl saw my still body at the foot of the stairs, his first thought was to 9 down to move me. My knees were drawn up into my chest, my face was

  Task 9

  I enjoyed having fun with my 4 teacher who made lessons engaging and entertaining. That first year 5 the foundations of friendship and 6 my confidence. But when my classmates started Grade three, my brain was slowly

  7 down because teachers talked to us like we were deaf babies. This “education” continued, shutting off my ability to 8 . Outwardly (外表上), I looked pretty 9 ; inwardly, I was amusing myself, lost in my own thoughts. But I had no way to 10 . My mother took me out of special school to be taught to read and write.

  I had used an eye to gaze (凝視) computer method before. It was 11 because the computer couldnt 12 my eyes very well, but my mother could. Looking at letters, words or numbers on a spelling board, I sat 13 my mother, who watched my eyes and pointed to the square I was looking at. 14 was slow at first and when it was the third week I was getting bored. 15 , my mother was given advice to make the lessons more 16 .

  September brought a renewed pace. By February I was able to use the spelling 17 for all my communication. By Grade five, I had

  18 up with my classmates and joined my local full?time primary school.

  Being able to communicate has changed my life. I can now hold 19 with family and friends.
