    2. A teacher had a wonderful idea to send these notes home to parents, in order to help kids going through a rough time:

    the paper note

    "If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, I would like to provide additional support at school. I understand that you are not always able to share details and that's okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning, or weekend, please text me, 'Handle with Care.' Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let me know that your child may need extra time, patience, or help during the day."

    3. This loving and accepting note from a dad probably made coming out a lot easier:

    the letter

    "Nate, I overheard your conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now. I've known you were gay since you were six. I've loved you since you were born. —Dad

    6. This poor soul with a bad flu added a note when ordering delivery food, and got a note back with free garlic bread:

    The customer's note reads: "I'm sorry I'm ordering so late I'm very sick right now I just woke up I understand if you cancel BC you're trying to close to store xx."

    The store's response note reads: "Thank you for the kind note. Don't stress about ordering late, we don't mind. Here's a free garlic bread to help you feel a bit better."

    The customer's Yelp review reads: "They gave me garlic bread on the house when I was feeling sick and wrote me a cute lil note on the delivery box and personally I would like to give each and every employee a little forehead kiss.

    7. This person received a note on their car from an unhoused person after stopping to have a chat with him:

    "To a kind hearted woman,

    Hi. I just wanted to say thank you again. I thought that was really cool of you to take the time to stop and talk to me and ask how I was doing and then asked if I needed anything.

    That made me feel good and made me feel like an equal to everyone else instead of feeling like I am garbage and not good enough to be on the level of a person who is not homeless asking for change. It's crazy cos I know what already of course but when your alone on these streets it's crazy how much people can break you down mentally just by being rude, treating you like your a low life bum that's on the streets by choice and it's fun to be homeless or when you cross paths with them on the sidewalk and you smile at them and they glare at you like your an animal or a freak.

    I'm not giving you a sob story at all I just wanted to let you know that your one of the few that treat me equally anyways you should feel good about yourself for being that way."

    8. This teacher received a note from one of their students at the end of the year:

    the paper note

    The OP explained the note and translated it: "I was on a train, reading a book and a guy sat opposite from me. Before he got off at his stop, he scribbled this note and handed it to me. It‘s a little rhyme and loosely translates as: 'The rain is falling steadily, light and drab, someone should tell you how beautiful you are today.'

    I kept it cause it made me smile that day (more than 10 years ago) and again yesterday when I found it amongst my old photos and cards."

    10. This contractor left an adorable little gift and a kind note after renovating an apartment for new tenants:
