I came home today to see a package on my front porch. I was confused, as I wasn't expecting anything. Upon inspection, I see that it's from the Brownie Fairy. Wow--to be Fairied 2x!
I am just absolutely amazed. This was earlier today, and it took me sometime to process!
While I was opening the box and realizing what it was, I was on the phone with one of my best friends. I was bawling, she was freaking out thinking something was wrong, and I'm telling her, "No, no--it's a good thing--it's from the Brownie Fairy."
Anyhow, there was a card saying how the person is a lurker, but saw my post about a student stealing my camera. The Fairy recently lost a loved one who was an educator as well, and the camera belonged to him. The Fairy has no use for it, so sent it to me to replace my stolen one. Also included was a (very generous) gift card to go towards rechargeable batteries and then some extra just to help out (which will also help to fill the box that is going to a friend in Iraq).
I am truly touched, blessed, amazed at the kindness displayed by someone I've never met. I just sat down and cried. I've been really struggling internally with the class that the camera went missing in, and I plan to share with them this week about this random act.
Brownie Fairy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous act of kindness. I'm truly sorry you have recently lost a loved one, but feel blessed that you chose me to share with after you loss.
