Letter From Mother To Daughter

“My dear girl, the day you see I’m
getting old,

 I ask you to please be
patient, but most of all, try to
understand what I’m going
through. 

If when we talk, I repeat
the same thing a thousand times,
don’t interrupt to say: 

“You said
the same thing a minute ago”…
Just listen, please. 

Try to remember the times when you
were little and I would read the
same story night after night until
you would fall asleep. 

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t
be mad and don’t embarrass me.
Remember when I had to run
after you making excuses and
trying to get you to take a shower
when you were just a girl?

 When you see how ignorant I am when
it comes to new technology, give
me the time to learn and don’t
look at me that way… 

Remember,  honey, I patiently taught you how
to do many things like eating
appropriately, getting dressed,
combing your hair and dealing
with life’s issues every day… 

The day you see I’m getting old, I ask
you to please be patient, but
most of all, try to understand
what I’m going through. 

If I occasionally lose track of what
we’re talking about, give me the
time to remember, and if I can’t,
don’t be nervous, impatient or
arrogant. 

Just know in your heart
that the most important thing for
me is to be with you.

 And when my old, tired legs don’t let me
move as quickly as before, give
me your hand the same way that

I offered mine to you when you
first walked. When those days
come, don’t feel sad..

Just be with me, and understand me
while I get to the end of my life
with love. 

I’ll cherish and thank you  for the gift of time and joy
we shared. With a big smile and
the huge love 

I’ve always had for
you, I just want to say, I love you,
my darling daughter.”
Love mom
