16-Yr-Old Gives Mom 25 Letters to Open at Certain Times—1 Yr Later, She Reads the Hardest One

It doesn’t matter how old they get, handmade gifts from your kids are easily the best things anyone could receive. They’re full of heart, and hard work, and nothing beats the smile on their face when you see how proud they are of what they’ve made.

Handmade gifts beat purchased ones any day. Nobody knows this more than Cindy Mathis.

Macy’s Journey

For her birthday, Cindy’s 16-year-old daughter, Macy, gave her 25 handwritten letters. Each letter was designated for a specific occasion—when she was feeling lonely, when she wasn’t feeling pretty, when she couldn’t sleep or when she just needed a laugh.

The letters were Macy’s way of reminding her mom just how much she loved her.

Less than a year after giving her mom the letters, the teen and her boyfriend were involved in a fatal car accident. Macy’s boyfriend, Adam Sattler, died on scene.

Just five days later, on November 25, Macy passed away as a result of her injuries.

Cindy had loved Macy’s letters before, but after such an unbearable tragedy, those 25 pages full of her daughter’s thoughts, hopes and love took on a whole new meaning.

She told a local news station that her daughter’s letters “really helped her out in a lot of ways that [she] didn’t realize until after [Macy] passed.”

Grieving her 16-year-old daughter meant Cindy was enduring loneliness, anger, sadness, depression and a multitude of other emotions. Macy unknowingly prepared immense comfort her mother.
