英訳本が欲しいという友人から連絡をいただき、待ち合わせ。
愛犬を連れてくるというので、アウトドアのテーブルで待つ。

久しぶりに、長い時間、人を待つ。
そんな光景すら、懐かしい。

一人娘を育てながら、仕事も懸命に頑張っている彼女が、
社団法人に賛助までしてくださって、頭が下がる思いでいっぱい。

勇気ある女性は、強くて優しい。

I was contacted by a friend who wanted an English translation of my book, so I met her.
She said she would bring her dog with her, so I waited at an outdoor table.

It's been a long time since I waited for someone for a long time.
Even such a scene was nostalgic.

She's raising her only daughter and working hard at her job.
I was filled with a sense of thanking her for even supporting Seri's Gift Association in Japan.

Courageous women are strong and kind.
