From the reddit post…

When I met Chuck Palahniuk at his book signing, I broke down like someone who was meeting their hero, because, honestly, of the top ten people that I admire, he’s way, WAY up there.

During the meet and greet, Chuck and my daughter had their heads together, and hatched a plan. Chuck asked her to write him a letter about me, what I liked, what my dreams were, and who I was as a person. She wrote him an amazing letter, and seeing her write such wonderful things about me was honestly a wonderful gift in and of itself. During the cover of night, she wrote the letter and passed it on to my husband to mail.

Here’s that letter…

By the way, I want to point out this particular part of that letter, which is pretty much the most amazing thing I’ve read in quite some time…


“She saved me from my own personal hell. She is my savior and you are hers.”

That’s a pretty incredible thing to say!

First, here’s that beautiful mother/daughter duo:

The story continues…

Today: I get a text from my daughter that I have a package waiting at home. I was confused as I had not ordered anything. (And trust me when I say today was an awful day.)

I get home and see the box with a note in front of it that says “This Was Our Secret.” The return address was from Chuck.

So what happened next? Find out after the jump!
