The campus bookstore didn’t have the paint I was looking for, but I think I still got what I needed.

Friend: thank you so much for your sweet note. I’ve been having a pretty rough go of things for a while now, and though I like to consider myself optimistic, there are days when it’s hard to keep my head up. And this was one of them. Your letter brightened my morning immensely, and I am incredibly thankful I happened to stumble upon it while searching for art supplies. Little things like this are how I know God is there, watching out for me; may He bless you for your kindness.

I almost left the note there for someone else to find, but decided I wanted to keep it as a reminder and I promise to leave a new one in its place. I don’t want the chain to end with me, and I’m so glad there’s so much love still in the world.

I found this in a bathroom stall at Stratford, at a time when I’m on the cusp of big, scary, massive change in all areas. This made my day, week, month, year. What a great project.

Thank you.

 Found at Remedy Cafe in Edmonton Alberta while I was out getting a coffee with my sister. Perfect way to start a cold snowy day! Thank you to whoever wrote this letter, my day was filled with happiness because of you!

I found the letter at a rest stop on my way to Washington, DC with my husband and sister-in-law.  The beautifully written words were just the start of an amazing weekend with my wonderful family. A lot of mine and my husband’s life has been revolved around work lately, and this love letter reminded us that we may work hard, but we can’t forget the small things. Thank you Sunshine for brightening our day and weekend!

I created a post on IG about the letter I found yesterday, March 14, 2014 here in Manila, Philippines. It has been such an inspiration. I admire all of you who have brought people’s faith back to life.

Here’s my post.

I was reading a ‘Daughter of Fortune’ by Isabel Allende. I bought it from a second-hand bookshop. Before puting the book down, I casually flipped thru the pages and something caught my attention. It was an envelope with “Hello stranger” written on the front side. At first, I thought it was a note from mine as she usually leaves notes of love just about anywhere. I opened it and was greeted with cursive handwriting. Nope, that couldn’t have been mine’s. I read the letter and a feeling of encouragement washed over me. A part in the letter said “DON’T GIVE UP! FIGHT!” It was a letter, signed by Jane Doe. An anonymous letter. I noticed something written on the inside of the envelope, it read #moreloveletters. I quickly googled it and found a website that promotes this ‘pay-it-forward’ type of letter writing. Having found this letter, it has really restored my faith in humanity. Recently, I have just gone through one of the lowest points of my life. I am slowly moving forward and this little act of kindness from Jane Doe has pushed me to keep moving on and to fight. Whoever you are, thank you.

Found this in the commons today, at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Absolutely changed my day. I wish i could thank the person directly for their words. I found my self trying to scribble down something as genuine and caring to leave for the girl that left this note or even the person who would sit here after me, but each attempt was eclipsed by the note it was following. So instead, i decided to part with it, leaving it in a new location for another person to chance upon these kind words.

Not sure if you will get this, but thank you, it was well received and i hope you find someone who realizes what they have.
