5am. Greetings

5am.
When I woke up as usual, my 22-year-old son had returned home. He had been in Osaka for the last trip before graduating from university three days ago. Before I could say "Good morning," he said, "I'm back." "I just got back." I replied, "Welcome back."
He has been playing baseball since elementary school and was the runner-up in the prefectural tournament in high school. For some reason, I suddenly remembered that he was on the mound in the semi-finals with a broken elbow as a pitcher. At the end, he was in tears on the mound... Of course, he had no time to play while enduring the hard training, and he had a rebellious phase, but above all, my son, who had grown up, was in the living room this morning.
Since I went to a university outside of the prefecture, I only saw him twice a year when I went back home. This casual family conversation at 5am in the morning. It was heartwarming.
You'll be getting a job outside the prefecture, and there will be a lot of hardships and difficulties, but do your best!
Greetings are great. They have a magical power. They help us naturally get closer to each other.
I realized the depth and importance of greetings at 5am this morning.

5:00 AM.
I woke up as usual to find my 22-year-old son back home, having been in Osaka for three days for what was his last trip before graduating from college. Before I could say, "Good morning," he said, "I'm back. He came back a while ago." I said, "Welcome back.
He had been playing baseball since elementary school and had won second place in the prefectural tournament in high school. For some reason, I suddenly remembered that I was on the mound for the semifinals as a pitcher with a broken elbow. Tears on the mound at the end... Naturally, I didn't even have time to play with him as he endured painful practice, rebellion, but most of all, my grown-up son was in the living room this morning.
He went to a university out of the prefecture, so we only see each other twice a year when he returns home. This casual family conversation started at 5:00 in the morning. It was so warm.
He is going to work outside of the prefecture, but I wish him all the best in his new job, even though he is going through a lot of hardship and pain!
Greetings are nice. Magic power. We can be close to each other naturally.
The depth and importance of greetings. It was 5 o'clock this morning when I realized it.

5 minutes early in the morning.
When I woke up, as I often do, my 22-year-old son was already at home. Three days ago, I went to Osaka for my last trip before graduating from university. When I returned, I didn't just say, "Good morning," but instead said, "I'm back." "I'm back strong." "Welcome back home," I said.
I started batting baseball in elementary school and made it into the Asian team in the prefectural baseball championships in high school. Without knowing why, I suddenly remembered that during the semi-finals I was on the pitcher's mound and had broken my elbow. In the end, I was crying on the hill... Of course, I had to endure the hard training and there was no time to hit the ball repeatedly. I had gone through the rebellious period, but most importantly, my child had grown up and was now in the lobby. Early morning.
Because I am a student at a university outside the prefecture, I have only seen him twice this year, both times when I return to my old home. This time the family had a casual conversation at 5 p.m. Relaxation.
I am currently searching for work outside the prefecture, and although there are many difficulties and painful circumstances, I am doing my best!
It's very exciting to call out to someone. Miraculous power. We can naturally depend on each other.
Symptom depth and severity. At this point I realized it was already five minutes past this hour.
