• . A Letter From Mom & Dad
• 1. Dear Child, In the autumn of my life, please try to understand and be patient with me, if, due to…… my declining vision,
• 2. I break a plate or spill some soup on the table.
• 3. Please, don’t berate me. Old people easily get hurt. Self pity breaks me.
• 4. When I could hardly hear and couldn't understand a word you say, don’t call me ‘deaf!’,
• 5. Please. Simply repeat it or write it down. I’m sorry, my child, I’m so old.
• 6. When I could hardly stand up because my knees are weak, please, help me up,
• 7. Just like what I did when you were Just learning to stand up and walk.
• 8. Be patient with me, my child, if I sound like a broken record. Just listen and Don’t laugh at me.
• 9. Do you remember when you were young? When you wanted a balloon, you would ask for it the whole day through ‘til you finally had it.
• 10. I was so patient with your childish demands then.
• 11. I'm sorry if I smell like an old coffin. I guess, old people smell the same. Don’t force me to take a bath, please.
• 12. My body is fragile. I easily get sick with a sudden change of temperature. Don’t abhor, or despise me.
• 13. Do you remember when you were young?
• 14. I even playfully chased you down under the bed when you didn’t want to take a bath.
• 15. Be patient with me if often I am cranky. That’s probably because of my old age. When you grow old, you'll understand.
• 16. Can I have a piece of your time, please? I just want to have a little conversation with you.
• 17. It feels so lonely: alone at home the whole day with no one to talk with.
• 18. I know you’re busy with your work; but I long for your presence, too, to talk and be with; well, you can pretend to like my stories.
• 19. Do you remember when you were a child?
• 20. I would look at your eyes and patiently listen to your stories about your teddy bear, crushes and little adventures.
• 21. And when the time comes that I could not get up anymore, pinned on the cursed bed of suffering, you may not get reluctant and tired of taking care of me...
• 22. Forgive me if I pee or defecate on my bed due to incontinence. Please, bear with me at the last moment of my life. Anyway, I won’t stay much longer.
• 23. On my deathbed, please hold my hand and make me strong in facing the inevitable death.
• 24. And please, don’t worry, for when I come face to face with our Creator,
• 25. I will whisper and beg God to bless you, for you've been A… loving… Child…
• 26. THANK YOU for taking care of us… Love,
• 27. Your Mom and Dad, LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.. <3
