A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Here comes Tokyo and college. It really has to happen. Have a safe flight. I'll miss your sweet smile when I wake you up in the mornings, even though I know that you are thinking - "Why are you waking me up?" You have been a great inspiration to me. I have worked hard to become the kind of mother that a terrific and beautiful person like you should have. You are so incredibly smart and talented. Yes, and there is nothing I can say now, that I haven't said a thousand times in the last nineteen years. I love you. I am very proud. and I want pictures.
