Family finds a secret message at the back side of the mirror written by their late Daughter
3 The surprise
After her death, Athena’s dad was doing some cleaning of her room and found some self-written songs, and a heart wrenching message of 3,000 words on the back of her mirror in the room. The message is something that depicts the innermost feelings of a young girl, a young girl who knows that she doesn’t have much time left on this planet and still has decided to put up a tough fight against the disease that is killing her.
Dean, 33, said of the note: “She never mentioned it, but it’s the kind of thing she’d do. She was a very spiritual person, she’d go on about stuff that I could never understand – she was so clever.” The message goes something like, “Happiness depends upon ourselves. Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story. The purpose of life is a life of purpose. The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
Happiness is a direction not a destination. Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young. You know my name, not my story.
You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through. Love is like glass, looks so lovely but it’s easy to shatter.”
