Adulthood is full of troubles and worries that can take us away from what is most important in life; love and understanding. However, everything in this life has its end and that of adulthood is old age.

At that moment, the rhythm of life begins to slow down and it is possible that it is no longer so easy to take care of ourselves. That is when every mother hopes to be able to count on her children, but it is not always so easy to get their support.

That is why this sincere letter is just what every daughter should take into account.

“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.”

How beautiful it is to be able to give back to our parents everything they ever did for us when we were small and helpless. We hope this letter was inspiring, share it with your friends and loved ones to spread this powerful message.

And here is another letter from a mom that needed to remind her teenage son about what it really means to be independent. He would have never imagined what his mom wrote to him.
