It is probably a true story that happens to all parents outside. I got this when I watched a heart touching video on you tube. and I wrote this just to share with my beloved friends who really love their parents. Hopefully after reading this, you will never leave your parents anymore and always take care of them, whenever and wherever they are….
A Letter From Mom and Dad
When I get old,
I hope you understand and have patience with me
In case I break a plate,
Or spill soup on the table because I’m loosing my eyesight,
I hope you don’t yell at me
Older people are sensitive.
Always having self pity when you yell
When my hearing gets worse and I can’t hear what you’re saying,
I hope you don’t call me “Deaf!”
Please repeat what you said or write it down
I’m sorry my child.
I’m getting older
When my knees get weaker,
I hope you have the patience to help me get up
Like how I used to help you while you were little,
Learning to walk
Please bear with me
When I keep repeating my self like a broken record,
I hope you just keep listening to me
Please don’t make fun of me, or get sick listening to me.
Do you remember when you were little and you wanted a balloon!?
You repeated yourself over and over until you got what you wanted
Please also pardon my smell
I smell like an old person
Please don’t force to shower
My body is weak
Old people get sick easily when they’re cold.
I hope I don’t gross you out.
Do you remember when you were little?
I used to chase you around because you didn’t want to shower
I hope you can be patient with me
When I’m always cranky
It’s all part of getting old
You’ll understand when you’re older
And if you have spare time,
I hope we can talk
Even for a few minutes
I’m always all by my self all the time
And have no one to talk to
When the time comes
And I get ill and bedridden,
I hope you have the patience to take care of me
If I accidentally wet the bed or make a mess
I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moment of my life
I’m not going to last longer, anyway
When the time of my death comes,
I hope you hold my hand
And give me the strength to face death
And don’t worry…
When I finally meet our Creator…
I will whisper in His ear
To BLESS you
Because you loved
Your Mom and Dad
Thank you so much for your care
We love you
With much love,
Mom and Dad
