"What do you eat today? Dad cooked a lot of delicious dishes, but it’s a pity that you can’t come back. " Mother’s words are full of regret and concern.
"You eat more, eat my share, I’m all right here, eat well, don’t worry …" Xiong Mengxiang in the video always keeps smiling. A few minutes later, after hanging up the phone, she quietly turned her head and gently wiped her tears. Immediately, she began to tidy up her appearance, then put on a smile again and returned to her post to continue her work.
