An anonymous open letter surfaced on the web over the weekend from a thoughtful mother to her daughter. The mother wrote this note for the day her daughter notices her mother aging for the first time.
The letter offers some heartwrenching perspective for when that day arrives. It details moments we all have had when our parents get older… the repeated stories, forgotten details, and minor inconveniences. But in the end, the things our parents did for us will overshadow the time we spend caring for them in old age.
Check out this beautiful story below and share with someone you love. We all need perspective like this every now and again.
Share this to encourage someone who may need it, and never ever forget the ones who have loved you.
