Little Girl Hands Out Random Notes That Are Stopping People in Their Tracks


Louise Sharp never expected to be handed a special note while running her everyday errands–let alone chocolate and some flowers. But that’s exactly what happened when Sharp encountered a young girl and her grandfather giving out batches of gifts to passersby that are almost too precious for words.

Warmed by the strangers’ act of kindness, Sharp took to Facebook to share her experience.

Sharp explained that she heard someone shout, “Excuse me,” but assumed the person was about to tell her she had dropped something. Instead, she turned around to a girl of 8 or 9 offering her a bunch of daffodils, a chocolate bunny, and a note that said, “These are for you.”

Completely taken aback by the gesture, Sharp blurted out, “Oh my goodness, why?”

Equipped with the most beautiful answer possible, the little girl replied: “Because you’re special, and people need to be told they’re special. We all need to be kind to each other. So these are [from] me and my Granddad.”

How precious!

Sharp later read the note and was even more moved by the little girl’s generous act.

“I thanked her and told her she’s extremely kind, and that makes her special too. I doubt you’ll see this, but I’ve just read the note properly and found your name. Thank you so much, Cassidy and Granddad.”

Sharp concluded her post with a message reminding us all that a small random act of kindness can go a long way.

“You have just completely made my day, if not my year, you inspirational girl. I’ll keep the note forever and look at it every time I feel I’m having a difficult day. And you’re right, we absolutely do [need to be told we’re special].”

We couldn’t agree more; what a sweet gesture! Hopefully, this story will inspire others to do the same.
