Album with full of family's memories

I finally finished studying for my job!

In fact, after I finished it, I made an album for my mother as a present of mother's day.

I usually gave carnations for her every year, but this year, I really wanted to show my gratitude to my mother.

I considered what would make her glad the most.

From my point of view as a mother, I arrived at the answer that my happiness would be what my children would be happy.

So I decided to make an album with full of my family's memories.

When I got married and moved to my house, I brought my albums which my mother had made since I was born, so she is not able to see those photos now.

I selected about 70 photos from them, and scanned some old negative photos using ScanSnap produced by Fujitsu corporation.


The ScanSnap is a document scanner and it is really excellent.

It can connect my laptop using WiFi and scan 25 pieces of A4 paper both sides in only one minute.

This is one of the photo of my mother and me which I scanned.


I ordered a photo book at an online photo book making service company.

It will be sent to my mother at the end of April.

I hope she will be glad to see it.

  2. Hello Kumi-san,

    Glad to hear that you finished your work studies.

    That a very nice photo of your mother and you. I always try and scan any photos I get as that way they will not fade or get lost or damaged. I use google photos which give unlimited storage of photos and I have a backup of all the photos I have on a usb drive here as well. I don't think I have ever scanned a negative before sounds like an interesting piece of machinery.

    Here is a list of some of the issues found in the rest of the post:

    Should be:
    Album full of family memories

    Should be:
    I usually give carnations to her every year, but this year, I really wanted to show my gratitude to my mother.

    Reason: Gave is normally used indicate giving something to someone in the past. But with the sentence above because it has the word "usually" before it and its is very common phrase we use give not gave.

    Examples:

    I gave money to the children's charity (I gave money in the past and may or may not give more in the future)
    I give money to the children's charity (I currently give money and will do in the future and presumably did so in the past but may not have)

    I (often/always/usually/frequently/regularly) give money to the children's charity (here we use give, this happens because it comes after the word (often/always/usually/frequently/regularly)).

    If that sounds confusing it is and is a strange non-standard way of wording a sentence in English, but its used more often than gave when coming after (often/always/usually/frequently/regularly). The reason I am not sure of.

    This line:
    I considered what would make her glad the most.

    Should be:
    I considered what would (give her the most joy/make her the most glad).

    This line:
    From my point of view as a mother, I arrived at the answer that my happiness would be what my children would be happy.

    Question: I am interpreting to the above sentence to mean:

    Should be:
    From my point of view as a mother, I arrived at the answer that I would be happy knowing that my children are happy.
