A family who bought a caravan discovered a heartwarming note left for them by one of its previous owners.
As they prepared to head out on their first adventure, the family from Brisbane found a handwritten message left in one of the drawers from a 10 year old girl named Poppy.
It was hidden away next to her bunk bed along with a white bracelet and was addressed to anybody who took over the caravan from her own family.
The message read: “This used to be our caravan and we travelled half of Australia in it.
“This was my bed (the top bunk) and it was very good. This draw (which is where you found this letter) is where I kept all of my special things that I couldn’t leave behind when we went travelling.
“I hope you enjoy this caravan very much.
“I am in grade 5 and I am very good at art. I have a message for you; follow your dreams and if you have the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind. Enjoy this caravan.”
It was shared on the Facebook group ABC Adelaide, racking up more than 5,000 shares as people loved Poppy’s positive message.
One said: “Wise words Poppy – for then, for now & for always.”
Another replied: “Poppy you’re a legend. May all your dreams come true with much love health and all the kindness happiness of the world.”
Other shared their own experiences of finding similar inspiration messages from strangers, including a supermarket worker who shared a picture of a card she received while working during the coronavirus pandemic.
It contained a scratchcard with a message saying that luck isn’t needed, only “love from the ones who matter most”.
