Nice to meet you! My name is TAMA from SEA FUCOIDAN SUPPORT.
I'm feeling butterflies in my stomach as this is my first blog post.
May 13th was Mother's Day.
What have you done for Mother's Day?
Today, I would like to talk about Mother's Day.
I live in Japan, far away from my hometown in China. I go back to China to see my parents once or twice a year.
I need more time to spend time with my parents, but it’s not going to work that way. I talk to them through video call every weekend.
Every time I ask them, "How are you feeling today? How was your week?"
but they always answer that question, "You don't have to worried about us. Live your life! that's more important than anything else."
They don't want to say anything that makes me worried. I think that is the parental love.
From this spring many people became a member of society. I can imagine how they are busy with work and try hard to fit in a new environment.
But, when you have a spare of time to call your parents, please do that for them. That would be one of filial piety.
My mother is in her sixties and diagnosed with high blood pressure when she was 50 years old.
Since then, she has started to think about health seriously.
It seems that she especially takes care of her daily diet.
For this reason, I gave salt‐reduced seasoning to her as Mother's Day gift.
Eating too much salt is not good for blood pressure, so I bought bonito fish soup stock and sent them to her.
I also taught recipes for cooking to suit the seasonings.
I see many shops promote Mother's Day gift these days.
I think what mother expects is not a gift.
It would be better to think about her and call her sometimes.
Those who forgot about Mother's Day, it's not too late to show your appreciation to her.
To the mother and father all around the world, may your day be filled with love, joy, and laughter.
