《馅饼的神秘配方》PIE

这周,我读了一本使人快乐的书,叫作《馅饼的神秘配方》。

书的一开始,交代了主人公珀莉姨妈拥有做馅饼的天赋,能够做出非常好吃的馅饼。每一个尝过她馅饼的人都会说同样的话——“珀莉,你应该开一间自己的店!”在珀莉的父母离世后,珀莉把留给自己遗产的一半存起来,用以度日;另外一半用来投资了一家破旧的店面,开了家馅饼店。

多年来,小镇上的居民都会模仿珀莉的配方制作馅饼,现在她终于有了自己的店铺,所以大家都非常开心。但是很快,他们的开心变成了担忧,因为他们发现珀莉并不打算出售店里的馅饼,而是要赠送它们。

“这些馅饼带给我快乐,我为什么要收大家的钱呢?”珀莉问道。

珀莉想让每一个人都能找到自己喜欢的馅饼,于是她做了不同口味的水果、浆果和奶油馅饼。

起初,大家束手无策。对于免费得到馅饼这件事,所有人都感觉怪怪的,但这种感觉又无法战胜他们对珀莉馅饼的热爱。后来,大家想到了一个回报珀莉的好办法。每天早晨,珀莉的店门口有各种新鲜食材在等她。可能是一篮子柠檬和三打鸡蛋;也可能是一堆苹果、一大袋面粉。不管大家给她拿来什么,珀莉都能立即物尽其用。

珀莉用自己的一生来为她得到的天赋表达感谢。她烤馅饼只为单纯的快乐,也很高兴能为其他人带来快乐。当珀莉离世时,每一个接受过她帮助的小镇居民都很伤心,他们在葬礼上啜泣不止,悼念珀莉。

这本书让我明白了很多道理:给予能带给人快乐,精神上的富足是最重要的。我也要努力成为像珀莉姨妈一样的人,用自己的天赋帮助他人,做一个无私的人。


This week, I read a delightful book called PIE.

At the beginning of the book, it is explained that Aunt Polly, the protagonist, has the talent of making pies and can make very delicious pies. Everyone who has tasted her pies will say the same thing - "Polly, you should open your own shop!" After Polly's parents passed away, Polly saved half of her inheritance and used it to get by; the other half was used to invest in a dilapidated storefront and opened a pie shop.

For years the townspeople have copied Polly's recipe for pies, and now she finally has her own shop, so everyone's happy. But soon, their joy turns to worry when they discover that Polly's pies aren't going to be sold, but given away.

"These pies bring me joy, why should I charge money from everyone?" Polly asked.

Polly wants everyone to find something they like, so she makes fruit, berry and cream pies in different flavors.

At first, everyone was helpless. Everyone felt weird about getting pies for free, but that feeling couldn't beat their love for Polly's pies. Later, everyone thought of a good way to repay Polly. Every morning, there are all kinds of fresh ingredients waiting for Polly at the door of her shop. It might be a basket of lemons and three dozen eggs; it might be a pile of apples and a big sack of flour. No matter what people bring her, Polly can use it immediately.

Polly has dedicated her life to being grateful for the gifts she has been given. She bakes pies for the sheer joy of making others happy. When Polly passed away, everyone in the small town who had been helped by her was very sad. They sobbed and mourned Polly at the funeral.

This book made me understand a lot of truths: giving can bring people happiness, and spiritual abundance is the most important thing. I also try to be like Aunt Polly, using my gifts to help others and being a selfless person.
