Friday night when we were out taking these very serious pictures:
I found a trashed school bag. All that was salvageable was a school book, two other books and a library card.
Of course I couldn’t leave this girls stuff out there (also I couldn’t leave books out there). And thankfully there was a library card so I could go my local library and have them look her up and contact her. I left the bag with the librarian and fingers crossed they will find her and she’ll be able to come get it.
I don’t know if this was the work of thrives or bullies (I guess in this case they are the same thing) but you would be an idiot to think a little girl would have large amounts of cash or valuable thing in her school bag. Either way I felt bad for her. So I collected a little goodie bag for her.
The cupcake brooch was gifted to me by Lulu from Lulus Wonderland but I’m sure she’ll forgive me for re-gifting it.
I wrote her a card saying I am sorry she had her bag stolen but that I hope she still believes in the kindness of strangers.
I also decided to give her my beloved cupcake bookmark that I once found in a library book. The sticker is from Amyrosestudio. I also included an owl shaped piggy bank with a couple of dollars and a note that this was the beginning to save up for a new pencil case.
I hope it finds her well and I brighten her day. I really do. But even if it doesn’t, even if she doesn’t like the presents I have left her, I am glad I did it. You are not your intentions, you are your actions.
