Aging is a natural part of life. This letter from an aging mother serves as a reminder that as parents get older they might lose their ability to remember or help themselves and require their children to remain patient.

She began the letter by explaining the purpose of her letter before expanding on her points. The letter read:

"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."

She went on to explain that sometimes she might ask her to repeat the same thing a thousand times. She asked her not to interrupt her and advised to "listen, please." She added:

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

She went on to advise that should she reach the age where she refuses to take a bath, her daughter should avoid getting "mad and don’t embarrass me." She also reminded her of what she used to do for her when she was little and refused to bath. She then wrote:

"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…"

She went on to advise her to remain patient when she forgets things, cannot keep up physically or gets tired easily. She also pointed out that "the most important thing for me is to be with you."
