March 3rd (yesterday) was Hinamatsuri (Girl's day).
We display dolls for praying for young girls' growth and happiness;
usually we display them about a month before the day
and remove them soon after the day.
It is said that if you don't remove them soon after the festival,
your daughter's marriage would be delayed.
(well...I have to confess only on here that I often keep them
about a week after the festival, that's a secret, though:))
My daughter is already grown up,
but I displayed them as always, praying for her happiness and success.
Yesterday I looked at her photo album feeling nostalgic.
For some reason, I only have one child, but I thank God for having her in my life.
She has made my life an unbelievably rich and beautiful!
She was delighted with her princess dress (made by her mother :))
for a play at kindergarden, and I was delighted with her smile:)
