Happy Mother’s Day!

Our global mom, Yasuko, has a sister who has been making quilts for many years. Every year she displays her work at an exhibition held at the Osaka City Art Museum. This year, she exhibited a 1.7-meter square quilt entitled “Mother’s Garden.” Look at the quilt closely! Amazing! ‘Beary’ minute stitches on the big square! Red flowers are ‘beary’ beautiful!

Happy New Year!

The year 2019 has just started! You must feel ‘beary’ fresh now. What is your new year’s resolution? I use a ‘bear’ calendar at home. Every day, the bear gives me a sweet message. Let me share the Jan-1 message with you.

“Beary” Merry Christmas!

The other day, an envelope came in the mail for my mom. It was from Motherhouse, which is a bag brand my mom patronizes. Why does she love Motherhouse? The bags of Motherhouse are made in Bangladesh, where she used to work. The envelope looked like it contained Christmas brochures.

Mother’s Day

May 13 is Mother’s Day. Around the world, people think of their mothers in their own ways. I (= Bobby) am working as the face of EEN, which means I am the “son” of the founder of EEN, Yasuko, who is working as a global mom. Today, my mom wants to remember her mother on Mother’s Day with a message in my (Bobby’s) diary. Here is the message from her:

Congratulations to Liberia!

July 26 is Liberia’s Independence Day. Today, Liberians are celebrating their 169th anniversary. At a café in a hotel in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, my mom found commemorative cookies to celebrate Independence Day.

Christmas Dress

My mom has been working in Liberia since July 2015. The other day, when she went to a hotel, she found this big Christmas tree. She was taking photos from several different angles, when she looked up and was “beary” amazed! Why?

A Gift of Grace to Be Shared

May 12th is my mom’s birthday. Oh, no! I should say, “May 12th is our global mom’s birthday.” She is not a mom only for me anymore; she serves as a global mom for everybody. On her birthday, she would like to send her special thanks to all of her family members on the earth.
