Daphne wrote, “I put a note in three books from my school library, and then I walked to the village toilets, and stayed in a cubicle for ages writing heaps and heaps of notes.  Then I arranged most of them in a smiley face shape on the inside of the door, and I put some on the sink. I felt so sneaky and mysterious and awesome.”

April wrote, “I shared Operation Beautiful with my two teenage daughters.  We immediately started placing notes in public bathrooms, elevators, anywhere we could think of.  While we weren’t really sure if anyone else got a smile from the notes, we all got a smile knowing we had shared.  It’s been awhile since we’ve placed any notes, but God works in mysterious ways, and here’s the best part of the story…     This past Wednesday seemed to be like a low self-esteem day in our local high school.  My youngest daughter Sara (now a senior in high school), was really frustrated by it.  She grabbed her post-it notes, wrote "you are beautiful,” and stuck it on the mirror in the bathroom.  A couple hours later she stopped back in the bathroom, expecting to find her note missing, and instead found 3 other notes, each with a little inspirational saying, now stuck around her note on the mirror.  By the end of the day, there were more than 17 notes around the mirror & walls in the bathroom.  It was just amazing!  Sara was ecstatic & other girls seemed to really be enjoying it.  Today, however, today was extraordinary!  Not only were the notes still up from yesterday, but the messages have spread to other restrooms in the building.  By the end of the day today, over 40 ‘feel good’ notes were hanging.  But that’s not all!  Messages started to come across Facebook from some of the girls who were so down on themselves earlier in the week… "You wanna know what made my day and probably a bunch of other girls? Those nice sticky notes in the bathroom by the cafeteria that said you’re beautiful and all those nice things :D Whoever did that, gets credit :D"!  There are just are no words to how good it felt for us all.”
