Taylor Scout Smith, 12, died of pneumonia Jan 2014 in Tennessee
The girl wrote the letter in April 2013, intending to open it in April 2023 – exactly 10 years on. She wrote to her future self about her life in the present and the future. She asked her future self if she’s majoring in law in college, if she’s gotten that high school degree, if life is good. The girl told her future self to remember birthdays, to remember that good and bad things happen in one’s life and to be strong and keep going. She also wrote that her life had so far been simple and easy, but that the future Taylor will have to remember that 10 years would have passed since the letter had been written.
Her parents discovered a letter she wrote to herself to be opened in 10 years
She tells herself to 'get that college degree!' and that she wants to be a lawyer and reminds herself to go to church
The heartbroken parents of a 12-year-old Tennessee girl who died of pneumonia discovered a letter she wrote to herself to be opened in 10 years.
But now the letter is serving as a precious reminder to the couple of their darling daughter, Taylor Scout Smith, who died in Johnson City, Tennessee, Sunday.
They found her note in a sealed envelope while cleaning up her room.
The two-page note starts saying: 'Dear Taylor, How's life? Life is pretty simple 10 years in your past,' according to CBS11.
'Congratulations on graduating high school, if you didn't, go back and keep trying, get that degree...Do you have your own place yet? If we're in college what are we majoring in? Right now I want to be a lawyer.'
She goes on to write: 'Remember it's been 10 years since I wrote this. Stuff has happened good and bad, that's just how life works and you have to go with it.'
God bless her soul :(
