This beautiful girl lost her life in a car accident. The 16-year-old had a great life ahead of her, just like every other person. She loved spending time with her family, boyfriend, and friends. She’s always known to be the lively and funny one.
Many teenagers often don’t like spending time with their loved ones, but Macy Mathis wasn’t like this. She loved her family above everything else and one year before her death she started writing letters to her mom.
The letters left her mom tearing up after finding them in her room. It brought back a lot of sweet-bitter memories that choked her.
Losing a child is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone. It becomes a nightmare many never get to recover from.
You know how it feels to lose a friend talk more of losing someone you carried when they were infants, cared and lived with. Then suddenly, you got to know there are dead, it always leaves a big hole in the heart, and no matter whatever is done it never heals.
They just get to live with the pain of losing a child. Cindy missed her daughter so much. She knew it was impossible to bring Macy back, but she still hoped somehow that something can be done to see her cute bunny again.
Cindy one day came across the biggest gift her daughter gave her before her death, it was 25 sealed envelopes, containing letters with themes for every occasion.
The various themes were for when her mom was having a bad day, the sleepless nights, the frustrating and rainy days, each letter was just there to make her feel better. Cindy froze the moment she say one of the themes on the letters “Open when… you miss me.”
Cindy’s emotions were all over the place. She didn’t know what to think anymore, was she going to find solace in the comforting words her daughter wrote her.
With a filled heart and shaky hands, Cindy opened the letter. Macy wrote:
“Hey, mommy. I’m sorry that you’re missing me. I hope that wherever you are or whatever you’re doing you’re okay. I’m probably missing you too. I honestly don’t like being away from the house for too long. I get homesick pretty easily. When I was little and lived with Dad, I would look forward to being with you.
I think some of it was because you always had good food at your house, but most of it was because I just missed you so much. I will always and forever love you, Mommy. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Macy Mathis”
This is so touching, I can’t help but shed a tear. It must be hard for Cindy and I hope she finds closure with the words of her daughter.
