But, it is not business talk" It is what I am talking with my own mother for my God sake! I stopped thinking, sat in front of my mother, and told her I will all listen.
My mother when she was her 60's with my father when he was alive.
It could be very much emotional if either I or my mother is not careful, my mother calmly started to talk. She said exactly as I thought she would. She is less confident in her health. She would like someone who can be close to her, living. She wanted me to be back to Japan living close to her.
It is natural desire for a mother to her only son. I told her that I understood. Further, I asked her if she can come live with us in California. (I needed my wife's agreement in offering this to my mother, and I had my wife's full agreement that time. Thank God!)
My mother thanked me for the offer, but she was not fully comfortable for living in a foreign country. This is quite understandable, as well. She is 85 years old after all.
Conversation going on and on including some memory talks about our father, my mother's sisters, my childhood, etc... It was time consuming process. But I was expecting it takes long time.
After 2-3 hours passed midnight, we decided to talk again later. Late next morning, my mother wanted short talk before my wife and I go out. She said "It was almost 10 years ago when I visited US last time. It may be about the time for me to visit and stay a while this time." I asked if she means to try live in California. She said "Yes".
