Skype with MOM
Last night, David and I talked to my parents through SKYPE before we sleep.

Yesterday was David's holiday and we got a great package from MOM last week so we wanted to tell our gratitude for MOM.


In Japan, it was around noon to start talking together and MOM looks so happy that we could show our happy smile together.

We ate dinner already and were in out FUTON before our sleeping during SKYPE.


Sometimes DAD came cross the camera of SKYPE but he has no time to talk to us.

Because MOM likes to talk much more than DAD and her talking never stop.

Dad is very less talker usually so just we enjoyed our SKYPE with MOM mostly together.


About 45 minuets, we talked together by SKYPE and David and I felt so happy that we could communicate each other before NEW YEAR.

Mom's great package gave us so much energy of LOVE and David & I are so happy to enjoy eating them after the arrival.

And Mom's love is always with us and MOM sounded very happy to make her package be happy & thankful for MOM a lot!!!


Mom tends to worry about us always but she doesn't say so much about her worries.

So we need to let MOM relived that we are happy together in Seattle as well as possible.


Anyway our SKYPE time was so great for both of us that we could feel so much LOVE from MOM and her happy energy before our sleeping time.

David was so surprised at Mom's talking about machinegun but we had a very fun time anyway.


And in this morning, the sunshine & blue sky could let us cheer up and happy again.

David and I had a great begging of our NEW DAY as usual as we do and we are so BLESSED now.


Anyway parents' LOVE can let our love become deeper and stronger than ever.

Our marriage life has many happenings every single day but I am sure that every day is getting better and better for great way of our RIGHT & PROPER direction...I can feel!!^^!!

I wish that your rest of this year (only about 10 days!!) will be wonderful with Blessing as much as possible!!

Birthday
Yesterday was David's Dad's birthday.

And David's elder brother is the same birthday, too.


David's Dad became 85 years old yesterday and I am very happy for you.

David's Dad and David's brothers' family had a nice birthday party 2 days ago together.


And David & I didn't take part in the party but we are very happy for them to get together,

Last week, my grandmother passed away and she lived 96 years old.

And I was thinking of her after that but I don't want to feel sad too much.


David's Dad became 85 years old yesterday so David & I wish he will be able to live as long as possible.

I hope that he will enjoy his own life more than 100 years old...anyway I am very happy for their birthday yesterday...^^

Dad's birthday
In Japan, today is my Dad's birthday but in Seattle it is before his birthday today.

But to my DAD, I sent my birthday message to adjust his birthday in Japan before he wake up in this morning.


And Mom has another event to her friends today and she has already celebrated his birthday yesterday as his birthday EVE.

So it means that Dad will have a lonely birthday without MOM today.

But for them, it doesn't look matter with it at all.


To celebrate with someone's birthday is just important to express each heart.

And to do so much special things for someone's birthday is not always good at all.

For my Mom & Dad, they have a long story of marriage life and each birthday is not so much big event for them.


But I wanted to express my gratitude for Dad's happy birthday anyway and I sent my message to him.

And without him and Mom, I cannot exist in this world and his birthday has a meaning for me.

To be a old age doesn't not bad things at any ages and to get older means to be able to enjoy own life more than before.


And I just want Dad to enjoy his retirement life with Mom from now on with smile as much as possible.

Now I am with David at Seattle in U.S.A. and I have no plan to come back to home in JAPAN for a while.

But my Dad & Mom knows how happy I am with DAVID and I want them to understand my happiness with him without worry.


Dad & Mom has own pace to live together and they look enjoy each own life these days.

After they repaired their house, their life became more comfortable & enjoyable than before, for sure!

Soon many cherry blossom trees will let them feel new spring with warmth & beauty and they will enjoy it together!


David & I wish that Dad & Mom will live together as long as possible with smile & love always from now on...

Anyway we love my DAD and we are looking forward to seeing him again in JAPAN!^^

To vsist Dad's place & Mom's grave
Today David and I decide to visit his Dad's place and Mom's grave together.

We checked the weather of our way road to there and it will not be closed with so much snow in the mountain today fortunately.

After today, it will start to snow again and today looks the best timing to visit there together.



After long days of rainy days, we can see clear blue sky & great sunshine all way long to Dad's place.

More than 4 hours, we took a time to arrive at Dad's place in Richland.

Because we dropped at David's Mom's grave to pray for her today.


Her grave is still covered with a little snow and we couldn't find her gravestone.

But we know where it is certainly and we prayed for MOM for a while together.

And then we could feel so nice inside through this visit to her after her Mom's funeral service....


We really miss Mom and love her still now but we cannot let ourselves sink deep loss & sadness about her loss too much.

Dad is waiting for our visiting and we started to drive again.


We had a nice time together to talk a lot until his sleeping time.

We had a nice dinner together at fancy restaurant "Frost Me Sweet" with smile & lost of talking.


But we usually start to sleep around 7:00-8:00 p.m. at night and I felt sleepy after dinner suddenly.

Anyway we had a nice time together to talk each other for a while but after 4-5 hours driving, I was pretty tired.

I didn't drive a car at all but I kept sitting on the side seat all way long and it was too much stress for whole my body.


Just I need to take a rest enough and sleep well tonight to listen to my body's need & voice naturally.

But we have to visit David's elder brother's house to stay at their place tonight, so I wonder what time I am going to start to sleep tonight.><

Japanese rice cake (Mochi)
Today I got a package which Mom sent David & me MOCHI(Japanese rice cake).

Mom made it by herself and sent it for us to eat for New Year.

In Japan, to eat Mochi is traditional habit to make a wish for long & better life.


Usually Mom makes it and she knows David & I really like Mochi.

She used an express international mail to send it for us and it cost a lot.

Only 7 pounds Mochi needed to cost more than 60$ for shipping.


Of course, we can buy Mochi at some supermarket in Seattle but sending Mochi for us is Mom's love even the shipping costs a lot.

I was very happy to get it from Mom today and David will really love it later after he finish working.


Today is his the last working day in this year, so I will let him eat Mom's Mochi for dinner.

And I really appreciate with Mom's love for us so much.


Mom put on a simple message to us and it said, "Have a happy new year!!", that's all.

It was very simple message for us but it was all what Mom & Dad wish for our marriage life.


I sent a message for Mom to thank her by e-mail after I got her Mochi.

And I wonder what is the best gift for Mom & Dad in return from us...

David's Mom's birthday
Today is David's Mom's birthday.

Last year, her Mom was alive and we got together to celebrate her birthday at David's elder brother's house.

And we had a nice time together.


After less 2 months, David's Mom passed away suddenly at the end of last August.

Yesterday, David suddenly started to cry because he was thinking about his Mom a lot.


Before he started to cry, I didn't understand how he felt at all.

But he told me how he felt inside of his heart.


And his much tears hit me so hard.

I wanted to share with his sorrow & sadness as much as possible as a wife.


Not only happiness but also sorrow, we can share with each heart honestly & frankly.

His tears couldn't help overflowing from his pure eyes and I almost started to cry because his heart was so hurt.


I cannot feel his heart as he felt as exactly same feelings but I just want to heal his heart somehow.

Just I was beside of him to release all his teas outside completely.


He seemed to be patient not to cry these days.

And I thought that he needed to cry to pull out all of his emotions about his Mom.


His Mom & David have a 54 years' history...it is very long and very deep.

David & I have only 3 years' history after we met for the first time.

So my love for David is not enough love which his Mom loved him so much.


But I want to love him more and more like his Mom loved him.

And just I realized how big David's heart has feeling about his Mom after she passed away last summer.

Also I realized how much I love him and I want to support him at any situation...


In this morning, he seemed to think something about Mom again...

But I didn't say to him about it at all before his work and just I wanted to watch and protect him with love & compassion.

Telephone call
David calls his Dad mostly every day.

But I don't call my parents in Japan at all.

I sent some e-mail to them and it is normal for us.


David worry about me & my parents and he suggested to call my parents in Japan yesterday suddenly.

I was surprised at his offer but I let him call to my parents because I know its his love for them.


Yesterday our local festival held fortunately.

David called to my parents' phone number at first and Dad picked to talk then.

They seemed to enjoy talking together and I was very happy to know that.


Dad told me that Mom was outside to care for her vegetable garden at that time.

So we decided to call Mom later.


And after lunch time in Japan, David called to Mom's cell phone to talk to her directly.

Mom's voice seemed to be surprised at Davd's sudden call but it sounded so happy.


And my elder sister and younger sister's family would come to have a barbecue party today for the local festival.

My parents' house had just finished remodeling recently so they sounded to be happy at the new house.


After a short talking to my parents, David looked so happy to know their happy time.

I appreciate with his love for our parents so much because my parents could know our happiness with LOVE.


David misses Japan so much and we are very looking forward to visiting them someday to stay at their new house.

Full moon!
Today is full moon.

But it is very cloudy today so I am afraid that I cannot watch the full moon tonight.


And I got message from Mom & Dad.

They sent me each message at different pace.

But this time my parents sent me a message at the same time.


Dad sent me his present situation as usual and it was very simple.

And Mom sent me her thinking and her news as usual and it is very like my MOM.


Mom always worries about me and I sent her my message that "David & I are very fine! So Mom doesn't need to worry about us at all!!"

But she tend to worry about us at all the time so I need to let her not worry about us.


Of course, I sent Dad my message that we are doing well and my daily life.

Dad & Mom will know that we are very fine by my e-mail sometimes.


After I moved to Seattle, almost a half of year has passed already.

So my parents think of me sometimes and they sent me their message.


I know my parents' love without messages & talking so often.

And I really appreciate with their love for me and I just pray their happy life.


Now my parents' house are remodeling.

And the completion would finish the end of May but it was delayed.

But soon it will complete and they will enjoy the new house as they planned.


Even I am apart from my parents, I really appreciate with their love for us and pray their happy life and long life always...

Mom's birthday
On 15th May, it is my Mom's birthday.

I thought that today is her birthday in Seattle.


Between Seattle & Japan, now we have 16 hours' time differnce.

So I sent my birthday message for her that I am so sorry to say "Happy Birthday!" late.


Mom gave me the reply on her birthday in Japan.

And I realized that today is 14th May yet and I could send my birthday message to her on the day today.


I thought that I was delayed to send my message with bad feelings but now I am happy to send her on her birthday.

With David's love, I could send my birthday message to her and she seemed happy.


After Mom got a big sick, every year of her survive let me relieved with gratitude & pleasure.

And I really want her to live as long as possible with smile & happy time.


Now my parents are waiting the completion of remodeling of their house.

Soon they will start to live a new house with Mom's favorite facilities.


Just I pray for her happy life with Dad every day with Blessing.

Mom is great esistence for me because without her, I cannot be in this world.

Now I am in the U.S.A but I long her healthy life with love & smile every day...

いよいよ出発
今日昼過ぎ、実家の静岡の家を出た。

12/2のシアトルへのフライト前に、今日は、友人の茅ヶ崎の家にお邪魔して、明日は横浜に1泊する。


だから、父母の住む静岡を、今日出発した。

父母の家を、次の月曜日には取り壊し、新たに改築するので、生まれ育った実家の一部が、今度遊びに来る時は、もうない…。

沢山の思い出のある家の中を片づけて、ガランとした様子は、ちょっと寂しいが、でも新しい家が出来るのは、楽しみだ。


昨日、DAVIDが好きなお餅を、母に作ってもらった。

新潟に住む、穂高養生園のボランティアstaffだったAさんが作った、有機の緑もち米で、白のお餅とヨモギ餅を、母に作ってもらった。


出来上がった、2枚の大きな四角のお餅は、合わせて2㎏以上。

母は、数日前から、手作りの干し芋も、DAVIDが好きなので、どっさり作ってくれていた。

それもかなりの重量がある。


合わせて、荷物にいれたら、予想以上に重い荷物になって、バックパックに入れて、背負ったらフラつく程だ…。

再会した、大好きな友人から頂いた、沢山の色々なお土産も一緒に詰めたので、バックパックは、パンパン!!!


どれも、置いていきたくないので、重たい!などと言ってられない。

何とか気合で、背負って持って行くのだ!


昨日、もう一つの大きな荷物は、成田空港に送り、2日のフライト前に空港で受け取って、チェックインの荷物にする。

シアトルの空港には、車でDAVIDがお迎えに来てくれるので、成田まで大きなバックパックを頑張って運べば、それでいいのだ。


父母に、静岡駅まで車で送ってもらった。

今年は静岡とシアトルを何度か往復したので、父母と、こうして別れるのは、これで何度目か…。


母は、旅立つ私に「身体に気を付けてね‼」と何度も、私に向かって叫んでいた。

父も母も、言葉少ないけれど、私の事を思ってくれているのが、ものすごく分かり、別れ際は、ちょっと鼻の奥がツンとした。


父母に心配をかけない様、DAVIDと仲良く、元気に生きていきます‼

2人で、仲良く生きていく事が、父母への親孝行だと思って…。


来年5月には、改築した実家が出来上がるので、父母の暮らしもまた、心地いいものになるだろう。

父母と過ごした、夏からの3か月は、片付けや掃除で、日々色々な事を思い、過ごしていた。


DAVIDといられなくて残念だったが、父母と沢山笑って、一緒に過ごした日々は、良い思い出になった。

アッという間の月日で、もうすぐシアトルへ戻れるのが、何だか本当なのに、まだ、現実感がない。


成田へ到着すると、その現実感が増すのだろう・・・。

今日は、久しぶりに会ったNさんの茅ヶ崎のお宅で、HAPPYな様子のご家族を見て、より一層、DAVIDに会いたくなった。


今日で11月が終わります、ね。

今年も、あとたった1ヶ月!

2014年の最後を、良い過ごし方をして、更にHAPPYな2015年へと繋げていきたいと、思う。
