I kept cleaning the house as much as possible at my parents house because my mom isn't good at cleaning the house.
Before and after my dad's funeral, I may have kept working at the house not to think that he had passed away.

Since my backache got worse, I became pushing my back with my own hands every time.

Unexpectedly I felt my daughter's fingers pushing my back.
(She came to Japan from Seattle the next day that my dad passed away to attend the funeral.)
She asked me, "Mom, you have a backache?"
I answered, "Yes, it's terrible."
Then, she said to me, "Well, I'll give you a massage tonight."
I really appreciated her tender and I could feel her growth.
