Letter From A Mother To A Daughter


“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. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.
When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?

When you see how slow 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… 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.

If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.

And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love.

I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter.”

    1. Lehey, It is very, very sad when we didn’t have the kind of mother we so desperately needed and wanted. There’s nothing to be ashamed of in our wounded little girl who didn’t get a mother’s unconditional love. But we can choose to forgive and ask God to do for us what we can’t do for ourselves. He will help you. Just ask Him and then give to yourself what you never got. Be that mother to your sweet innocent, beautiful little girl. Tell her how much you love her and remind her that you will always be there for her. She needs that. She needs you to love her and hold her and give her everything she never got. That’s how we heal. sending you much mother love. Take care of yourself. You are worthy of love and you deserve all the love your heart can hold. Let go and let God. He will both father and mother you in ways you never expected. Just ask.
