A Letter From Mom And Dad

My Child...
When I get old, I hope you understand & have patience with me. In case I break a plate, spill soup because 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 & can't hear what you're saying I hope u don't call me "Deaf!". Please repeat it 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 learning how to walk. Please bear with me...

When I keep repeating myself like broken record,I hope you just keep listening me. Please don't make fun of me or get sick of listening me.Do you remember when you were little & wanted a balloon? You repeated yourself over & over until you got what you wanted.

Please also pardon my smell. I smell like an old person. Please don't force me to shower. My body is weak. Old people get sick easily when they're cold. Do you remember when I used to chase you around because u didn't want to shower?I hope you can be patient 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 myself all the time & have no one to talk to. I know you busy with work. Even if you not interested in my stories, please have time for me. Do you remember when I used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear?

When the time comes, I get ill & bedridden,I hope u have the patience to take care of me. I'm sorry if I accidentally wet the bed or make a mess. I hope u have the patience to take care of me during the last few moment of my life. I'm not going to last much longer, anyway.

When the time of my death comes, I hope you hold my hand & 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.
