A gift from my mother.....

“Real learning” received from my mother

 

Although I was a personality like “striking the stone bridge carefully”, I have the experience of giving me “strength” like “pick up chestnuts in the fire”.

 

It is also the origin of my “philosophy as a teacher”.

 

It was October 35 years ago from now. Suddenly my mother fell down with illness when I worked as a teacher half a year ago.

 

It was just when the rice field was harvested and everyone in my family probably thought that she was overworked. Until then, my mother always stayed at home, I never thought deeply the meaning of my mother in my family.

 

However, when my mother was not in my family, there were lots of troublesome things. What I did not do, such as meal preparation, laundry, cleaning, etc., has attacked me.

 

A half year passed like that…

 

My mother died in the spring of 1984.

 

On the funeral day, students in my class took a thousand paper cranes and attended.

 

“Teacher, I am sorry… Our wish has not reached your mother…”

 

At that time, my tears overflowed and wept with a loud voice. It was very embarrassing, but I was very happy to feel pure attention of my students.

 

Students who think not only of me, but also my family. I felt the pleasure of the teacher.

After that, I lived for a while with my father, my sister and myself.

 

These things have already gone into the past, and now I can talk calmly.

 

I feel that I became stronger was the greatest guidance my mother taught to me through “Farewell to Death”.

 

It was a sudden and painful thing to say parental separation, but I think that I was able to catch up on my mother’s mind.

 

If my mother was still alive now, I must have become a weaker person.

 

I am grateful that my mother left in this way.
