My mother and I had some cucumbers and tomatoes for lunch which she got from a day care center that she visited for the first time in her life  of 87 years.

A long, good friend of my mother’s came to us and gave us a cluster of high quality grapes. As today falls on my grandfather’s monty anniversary of death, both my mother and I were very happy to offer them at the family buddhist altar. Sincere care about our ancestors is my mother’s important view on life.

母の旧い知り合いが上等の葡萄をくださいました。今日は祖父の月命日なので、先ずは仏様にお供えしました。ご先祖を大事にするというのは母の基本人生観です。

An e-mail message from a social worker who I often contact about my mother inspired me to write this one, “acquisitiveness for good; pliableness of thinking.

My mother and I took a walk today for the first time with her in a wheel chair, which I have long wanted to do.

In a wheel chair/

A nurse came to our house yesterday to help my mother wash her body and shampoo in a shower in our bathroom. Although mom insisted she did all by herself, it would naturally just impossible without the nurse’s kind, dedicated and efficient help.

Took a shower/

Wondering how many summers/

Will I (my mom get to) meet with.

昨日は、看護師さんがうちに来て母がシャワーを浴びてシャンプーもするのを手伝ってくださいました。母は全部自分がやったと言っていますが、当然看護師さんの効率的で、献身的なお仕事がなければ出来なかったことです。
