Naomi wrote, “In paying for coffee at work on Friday, I pulled a $10 note from my wallet. To my surprise I saw these words YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL. How sweet I thought, it brought an instant smile to my face. I figured my fiancé had done this, so I took a photo to thank him. I then verbally shared this lovely gesture with the barista, as I handed over this joyful $10 note (with a little hesitation). Right at that moment my warm & fuzzy bubble burst. ‘Oh this has been floating in and out of the till for days’ he said, with a complacent voice. My heart sank quietly & I felt suddenly deflated, instantly thinking this note was not for me. My mind then turned to wonderment, who was it meant for? How did it turned up in my wallet, unbeknownst to me? These bewildered thoughts sat with me all day & into the evening. Today, Saturday, I posted this experience on Facebook. Laughing at myself for thinking it was for me, allowing others to have a giggle at my deflation. Then sweetly, one of my friends commented with this tag, Operation Beautiful. And the journey has begun. So, now I find myself thinking and believing that someone, somewhere, had purpose with this creative note. My perspective now, on this engaging experience is one of gratitude & hope for others. How grateful I was to receive this beautiful $10 note. How blessed I am to know, that this small gift of kindness will fill an abundance of deserving hearts nationwide, passing through many happy hands.”
