Mother

Hi, friends!! Hope you all spent your special Happy Mother's Day..

...this pretty pretty carnations  from my son and daughter to me yesterday.
It is so grateful and blessing to myself on that day :) 


On Saturday, I went to pray the Myoshinji temple in kyoto for my husband's Mother Yoshiko(passed away last year). This is one of the highest and histrical temple in Kyoto of Japan.





As i found the message as bellow for us written by the temple's priest on the boad so I'll try to translate in English a bit.

it says ; 
When Mother is(alive) here ,
you feel comfortable. 
When Mother isnt here,
you feel vacancy.

=Mother


Have a nice week!!

Wow, what a big temple. The mood of the place must be different when it is so quiet (like in your pictures).

Lovely message.
Happy Mother's Day to you, Mami!

Hello, Mami - this is a very special post. Thanks very much for sharing Mother's Day traditions from Japan. In France our mothers' day will be on 30th May this year.
