Holly Butcher died on January 4, 2018, but just a day before she penned a very inspiring and motivational letter about how beautiful life is. The letter shared on Facebook has already become viral and gives life lessons that hold true and will convince you to live life to the fullest. Holly Butcher had asked her family to share her final letter on Facebook so that it can reach several people far and wide, and we must say that her purpose was served as the letter became viral on social media. Her letter has given hope to many around the world.
Holly Butcher writes in her letter, “It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts. That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right. I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.” Viral Photo of Woman With Cancer Getting Married in Hospital Hours Before She Died Will Move You to Tears
