For quite some time after I entered Leping Middle School， I had been longing for a beautiful new shirt， because all my shirts were worn out.
There was a nice green shirt in a shop-window on my way to school. Whenever I passed the shop， I would stop to have a look at it. As my family was not rich， the green shirt was too expensive for me to ask my parents to buy. But how I wished I could have it！
One day， I went as usual to the shop to look at the shirt， but to my surprise the shirt was gone. So I went home， full of tears ， as if I had lost something precious。
As soon as I got home， Mother called me in her room. I wiped away my tears at once， and went into the room. To my joy I found the beautiful green shirt lying on the bed. I came over to the shirt， picked it up， and looked at it carefully. Yes！ It was the one that had been in the shop-window and that I had been longing for so much. I came to my mother and threw myself into her arms. Tears were running down my cheeks when I said， “Thank you very much， Mother.”
That day was the happiest one I had ever had. I dont know how Mother saved up enough money for the shirt， but I have come to realize that although the shirt was costly， nothing is dearer than the love of my parents for me.
