Hey, pretty lady!
How's life going for ya? I'm sure wonderful as always! I'm sure college is also going great for you since your the smartest in our family! I saw you run track the other day, and dang! You were fast. I gotta say, I wish my future was as bright as yours is when I was your age. You're gonna make it somewhere in life, I'm telling ya! I remember when you were a young scout, always messing with me. And, I might just say, meeting you right when you got adopted was the best moment of my life. It's like you're my daughter too, my only daughter that is!
Something I've regretted most in life was never having kids, but at least I got to watch my favorite niece grow up. You became such a beautiful girl! Maybe I also regret never getting married and never having someone to love. Somedays I sit and think about what life would be like if I went to college, and got a good job. Maybe my life would be better now, maybe I'd be happy. I haven't been for so long, and I really want to be. I don't know if that will be possible in this lifetime scout.
I want to be around to watch you get married, and have kids. Maybe you'll even get married to that nice boy you're dating! I can't though. Life likes to give me obstacles I sadly can't get around. Scout, you know that I love you, right? I would never want to hurt you, or the rest of the family. You know that right?
Damn. Look at me, 53 with no life ahead of me. Now you tell me what's the point. You will make it far, you will accomplish everything you've ever wanted. I'm so very proud of you little lady. I'm not doing this because of the family not loving me enough, I'm doing this because I can't love myself enough.
Scout, I really hope I don't see you soon. I love you with all my heart, always remember that.
Goodbye, my sweet dear.
