My father is now in his late 70's.
He is active as a water color painter and enjoys teaching water color painting to many students every day.✨
As an engineer, he was transferred away from his family to Motegi town in Tochigi prefecture when he was over 50.
He was impressed by the rustic scenery and started devoting himself to water color painting.😄
After that, he retired in his 60's.
I can't forget the words he said at that time.
"I endured various things throughout my entire work life"
I was surprised because he had always been calm at home and never complained.
So I couldn't feel how hard he felt it was😵💦
Reconsidering, my father became addicted to Pachinko when I was in elementary school.
I looked forward to a lot of Almond chocolates he brought home as a souvenir of Pachinko.
But by hearing from my mother long after that, I learned he felt so much stress then that he couldn't get home without resetting his mind and feeling by doing Pachinko.
Oh, was that so? It was not until I grew up that I knew the fact.
Thanks to his patience, I have spent every day calmly without worrying about anything.
I can't thank him enough however much I do so.
In his second life, I hope he will enjoy water color painting more and more, and live to 100 years old actively.
And l want to spend time from now on laughing about various things with him.😉✨✨
