mother's day is soon. i went to look for a gift for my mom. i know what she loves.
this is preserved flower that i decolated before. i went to a class once with my mom and i learned and did it by myself. it's one of my hobby now. it is popular to give these flowers as a gift in Japan these days. to give carnations is still the most common gift for mother's day. i thought about decolating preserved flowers for her. but i know she likes to get different things rather than flowers. something usuful. something she looks good. she is a young mom for my age. maybe that is why!? hehehe.
so, i found her a nice skirf. thinking about which clothes will look good with the skirf. thinking about her smiling face. sometimes it is difficult to say 'thank you'. i guess because i am japanese. we are more shy, especialy guys that i think. when i was in Canada, i sew my friends expressing their love towards mom, friends and other people. the way we express is different. well, there must be some people who can express their love directly to others. but for lots of people in japan is not the same. so i was a little culture shocked in a good way.
i still have to find something for Kp's mom. it is still difficult for me... i gave her her a charm of her birthday stone. with her gurdian stone. i need Kp's help but he doesn't know much about what she loves neither. hmmm... wish me luck;) hopefully i will find something nice for her, too.
so this weekend, i will try my best to express how thankful i am. and we are. for lots of love she gave me. and lots of chances. lots of 'thank you' for understanding about what i chose to do.
