«My dearest daughter, when you one day notice that I am aging, please, be patient and try to understand what I am going through. When I repeat the same things in conversation many times, don’t interrupt me to say, ‘You already said that a minute ago.’ Just listen, please. Remember those times when you were little, and I would read you the same bedtime story every evening until you fell asleep.
When you notice my lack of knowledge about new technologies, give me time to learn them, and don’t look at me that way… Remember, my dear, how patiently I taught you many simple things: using utensils, dressing, brushing your hair… When you see that I am aging, please, be patient and try to understand what I am going through.
If I occasionally lose the thread of conversation, give me time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t get nervous or show impatience and arrogance. Just know that being with you is the most important thing for me.
And when my old, tired legs can’t move as fast as before, give me your hand. Remember that I supported you too when you took your first steps. And when that day comes, don’t be sad… just be with me and treat me with understanding until I reach the end of my life.
I will always cherish the time and the joy we shared together. I gave you smiles and love every day, and now, I just want to say that I love you… my dear daughter.
Share this letter with your loved ones! These words are worth reading for everyone!»
