A bag for my grandmother
Today, I sewed a bag for my grandmother, for her birthday present.
I like her very much from when I was a child. I often visited her house till I was a university student, but now I live very far from her.
So when I go back to my parents house, I usually visit her too. But at the last time, in August, she was not so good and I couldn't see her.
I know she is old now. So I want to see her and talk with her as much as possible.
It's very precious for me talking with old people. So when I stayed in Italy, I visited a lot of old persons lives there. They like talking a lot and they taught me a lot. One of them was 94 years old!
Once, when I and my sister were waiting for a bus in Sicily, an old woman lived near the bus stop came to us and brought two chairs for us. We told her that we had to wait for more 3 hours. Then, she began to talk with us. At that time, I couldn't speak Italian well and she could speak only Italian(My sister could speak only Japanese!). So we couldn't understand her story very well but we enjoyed very much. It was a very peaceful time.
When I think of my grandmother, I remember a lot of old persons I've met in Italy or in Japan. When I was making this bag, I was thinking of them.
