Life is Moving on.

Yesterday, I visited a friend of mine, who is in her 60's, an empty-nester and one of my students, to celebrate her birthday. In addition, her daughter's family, who lives in London, came back to Japan to spend their summer vacation. I had told her that I would like to meet them if it would be possible, and she remembered it and invited me this time.

When I arrived her house, they had already been there, and welcomed me warmly. Even though we met each other for the first time, we struck up a friendship.
Her daughter's husband was born and grew up in London, but his ethnic background is Nigeria. He told me about his background, schooldays, current job, education for his kids and his dream. I was really inspired by his way of thinking. What impressed me the most about his talk was "Life is moving on, Life is short. Enjoy your life."
I love to meet new people, my friends and try something new and interesting because these experiences will absolutely enrich my life, widen my horizons and lead to new opportunities. He told me about the same thing.

It was only two hours and half, but it was time well spent.
