我們的媽媽--故人略歷

我們的媽媽林張秀英於1930年10月24日生於宜蘭縣五結鄉,現年近90歲。她是一個大家都公認為有福的人。

媽媽在三十多人三代同堂的大家庭中是長孫女,家中經營米行,在當時日據時代家境還算小康。由於家族中堂表弟妹眾多,她有相當熱鬧而快樂的童年。

媽媽從小聰明美麗,人緣很好,在羅東中學就讀時都是當副班長。那時候,就有許多仰慕者在放學時跟在後面護送她走路回家。後來,還有一位老師到家裡提親,可是被我外公因「師生關係」而回絕。

媽媽中學畢業時,原本保送師範,需要到台北念書。外公不捨,就安排她直接去五結國小當代用教員。

媽媽當老師不到兩年,就經校長介紹,遵父母之命嫁給大她八歲留日回來的爸爸林秀棋,婚後生育兩男兩女:永貞﹑俊哲﹑永愛,和俊慧。白手起家的祖父-林維是台灣第一位公費留日學生,曾經當了十幾年義務鄉長,也為貧困學生設立獎學金,稱為「美德會」, 在當地很得人敬重。祖母是個基督徒,自己的兩個女兒早逝,後來領養了兩個女兒。她非常疼愛媽媽,媽媽也非常孝順。

爸媽爸爸是個極端正直顧家的男人,沒有不良嗜好,不交際應酬,不收/送禮,所以在職場上不是很順心如意。他喜歡音樂﹑照相﹑養熱帶魚﹑養蘭﹑種花﹑種菜等等,也喜歡旅遊,兩人玩過不少國家。爸爸除了身體不太好和脾氣比較急之外,沒有讓媽媽擔心的地方。

媽媽個性非常溫和,我自小從來沒有看過她發脾氣。即使有時受了委屈,也都默不作聲。她的可塑性很強,爸爸喜歡做什麼,她就配合跟著做,從不抱怨。爸爸玩音響,她就學唱歌;爸爸玩攝影,她就當模特兒;爸爸養熱帶魚,她就餵魚﹑換水﹑洗魚缸,還兼賣魚;爸養蘭,她就澆水;爸爸種花﹑種菜,她就拔草﹑施肥,當農夫,也很開心的把親手所種的菜帶去教會送人。

爸爸﹑媽媽都是難得的好人,所以要向他們傳福音非常難。但是感謝主,媽媽還是在1996年12月1日在麻州華人福音堂受洗歸主。這次她沒有跟在爸爸後面,而自己決定要當一個基督徒。她說,她小時候去廟裡都會很怕那些偶像,也很不喜歡那裡的氣氛和那些儀式;信耶穌就不一樣,很平安,很喜樂,生命很充實,充滿愛和希望,對生命的結束也不再害怕。她在受洗見證上還說:「希望藉著自己的信主,來幫助先生和大兒子也能認識主。」感謝主,爸爸終於也在2012年5月18日接受主。

爸爸﹑媽媽第一次到美國是在1980年。1982年起,他們每年一次到美國來看我們。1987年爸爸從合作金庫退休。1990年他們也辦了移民,拿了綠卡,每年在美國住六﹑七個月,在台灣住五﹑六個月。爸爸﹑媽媽都很愛我們。他們在台灣期間,每次生病住院都是事後才告訴我們,不讓兒女操心。

到了2008年,爸爸﹑媽媽覺得年紀大了,每年飛來飛去也很累;又發現每次他們來,我們要花很多錢幫他們買保險,就決定取消綠卡,回台灣定居。感謝主也在那年給迪忠到長庚大學教書的機會,讓我們能在父母的晚年陪伴他們。

爸爸自回台灣之後衰老得很快,但是,媽媽堅持自己悉心照顧,所以爸爸到95歲才回天家。爸爸走後,媽媽頓時生活失去重心,身體精神都出狀況。感謝主,俊哲非常體貼,決定把媽媽接回麻州,換他來照顧媽媽。

記得媽媽在照顧爸爸期間常說,她很希望以後還能回美國,去看那些她所想念的兒孫。她也常說,她希望以後自己能在睡夢中回天家,不要有病痛,又麻煩別人。感謝主一一成全她的心願,並且在她回美國之前,奇妙地醫治了她幾十年的B型肝炎!

媽媽回美國後,初時不適應,也會想念在台的親友。後來與她視訊時,她都會說,她很久沒去教會了!似乎很遺憾,也很懷念過去的教會生活。每次聊到最後,她也都會用台語說「感謝上帝!」我想,如果她現在能說話

親愛的姑媽,很想念妳

妳優雅的氣質,永遠的微笑,溫暖的擁抱,溫柔的話話,時時的關心,堅定的態度讓我有時慌亂的心得到很大的安慰。

以前在波士頓唸書的時候,最高興的莫過於吃到妳親手栽種的菜蔬和精心製作的美味佳餚,對妳而言或許只是小菜幾碟,但對離鄉背井的我適時的填補對媽媽的懷念與對家鄉美味的期待⋯⋯

唸書時放假總喜歡往俊哲家跑,特別是聖誕節,新年團聚的大節日,看著妳的子子孫孫圍繞著妳,那溫暖融洽的畫面,深知道妳是多麼有福,真是智慧才德兼具的婦人,真希望我的母親也和妳一樣幸福⋯⋯

感謝神讓我很榮幸在唸書那段時間與妳有比較多時間的相處,學習到很多妳待人處事的態度讓我印象深刻⋯⋯而且在我離開波士頓之後每次與妳電話聊天,那些溫暖的畫面再次浮現在眼前⋯⋯⋯永難忘懷

姑媽謝謝妳在我們生命中所存留美好的一切,以後天堂再見

姪女雯慧敬上





雖然來不及跟你說再見但我知道有一天我一定會再看到我美麗漂亮的姑媽

親愛的姑媽,

雖然妳已離開這個世界,但你的精神與我們常相左右。我們的記憶有許多你的點點滴滴,想忘記妳很難。

你是公認最有人緣,最值得敬重的姑媽。這個家族因爲你,常常歡聚在一起。有你在的場合,就是特別熠熠升輝。你的慈愛和關懷,常常溫暖我們的心。

如今你已壽終正寢,沒有遺憾,安詳離去,在天國安息。我會永遠記得你、想念你。
