    A 75-year-old California woman had the surprise of her life when she picked up a Bible from a used book store. It wasn’t the words printed on the book’s pages that brought her to tears, but a note she found inside written in her own hand 65 years earlier.

    Shurtleff had the Bible for a couple months and didn’t look closely at the yellow note inside it right away.

    “And then I opened it up, and instantly I saw my name,” she told the outlet. “I recognized my handwriting. I hollered. I started shaking. I cried. I had goose bumps.”

    The letter was written by her 10-year-old self when she was working to earn her merit badge for Girl Scouts, still living in Covington, Kentucky, which is more than 2,000 miles from where Shurtleff lives now.
