Lisa was a single mother who lived with her little son. She lost her job two years ago and they had a very hard life. Being poor was terrible. Her heart was broken every time her son asked, “Can I have some more bread and jam please, Mommy?”
One day, when her son asked the same question again, she decided to prepare a big meal for him with the only 6 dollars in her hand. She went to the supermarket, bought some food and cooked at home. Lisa was a shy mother, but she was strong-minded. “It’s time to make a change,”she thought. She used to love writing. In order to make some money, she began to write articles for magazines day and night. Things went better. The local food bank started to provide her with some free vegetables every month. Her son finally had enough to eat. Once he told Lisa that the dishes she made were delicious. Suddenly, an idea came to Lisa’s mind, “Why not share my recipes（食谱）on the Internet?” She did. Many people liked her recipes and she became popular. Soon after that, some reporters interviewed her and asked her to write a book on cooking. When Lisa got the money for the book she wrote, she had a good sleep for the first night during the two years. Now Lisa has a well-paid job and a beautiful home, but she’ll never forget the days when she worked hard for a good life.
