After my grandmother passed away, my grandfather liked to live between Taichung and Taoyuan all the time. On one side, there were memories of being with my grandmother after retirement and the care of my daughter nearby. Grandpa went back and forth like this until he accidentally fell. Elderly elders can’t stand the fall. They went in and out of the hospital several times. Grandpa’s condition continued to deteriorate. After the Pap Scale assessment, the doctor suggested that we take care at home and apply for foreign nursing care. In this case, Annie from Vietnam shouldered the responsibility. The heavy responsibility of taking care of grandpa. Most of the migrant workers in my impression are the breadwinners of the family. They have to travel across the ocean to Taiwan to earn a higher salary than their hometown to support the whole family, but this Annie's situation is not what I imagined. Annie's father opened a factory in Vietnam, and his family was pretty good.
Her father wanted her to marry a boy, but after she got married, her husband beat her every day, so she decided to come to Taiwan to work, and wanted to take the opportunity to stay away from her other half and save some money by the way. , I can take my son out to live with me when I go back to Vietnam. Perhaps because Annie grew up in a more favorable number list family environment than other migrant workers, she is not very good at other life skills except for the skills taught by the pre-employment training of the agency, but her mother said it doesn't matter, each family's housework habits are originally It's not the same, just teach it one more time. My mother is a working woman, work is her way of proving her worth, she enjoys a life of earning money and spending her own money, and cooking in the kitchen is my mom's way of stress relief; she loves cooking more than anything If she failed to cook the vegetables, she would be in a bad mood. Therefore, for my mother, Annie came to help take care of Grandpa, so that she could concentrate on work and cooking, which was a big help.
Grandpa's pension was used to pay Annie's salary. Mom didn't take Grandpa half a cent. We don’t owe anyone, and at the same time our family can maintain a certain standard of living, which is the fairest way to distribute housework. Grandpa has an exclusive seat in the living room, and Annie's seat is next to Grandpa, which is convenient to take care of Grandpa's needs. Although Annie is not good at housework or even cooking, she is very serious about learning any housework skills from her mother. She even bought a notebook and draws pictures and takes notes every day. She likes to follow her mother when she cooks. She has carefully recorded the cooking method of each dish since she bought vegetables. She said that when she returned to Vietnam, she wanted to open a Taiwanese restaurant and run it together with her son. Watching her start learning how to do housework without knowing anything, to being skilled in helping her mother to cut vegetables and prepare ingredients, and even start to cook some delicacies she has never seen in her life, I really feel that the power of mother's love is amazing, in order to reunite with her son , she learned a lot of things that she had never been exposed to before.
