A 5-year-old girl named Faith has touched hearts across the country with her adorable handwritten note confessing to breaking a Christmas ornament inside a retail store in Britain. Included in the letter were two one-pound coins to pay for the ornament and a very sincere “sorry.”
The manager of the store, identified as Dominic Joyce, tweeted a photo of the note and coins earlier this week. There was apparently no return address, but he now wants to find the little girl so he can appropriately thank her.
“To John Lewis Cambridge,” the letter begins. “I’m sorry I broke a Christmas bauble on Saturday. It cost two pounds. Here is the money for it. Sorry again.”
The letter was signed “Faith, aged 5″ and addressed to the “Christmas Department.”
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter, the little girl also included a sketch, which appeared to show a girl holding an object, possibly a Christmas ornament.
BBC News reported that Faith’s mother did contact the store but she didn’t want her daughter’s identity disclosed because she is a “very shy little girl.”
Still, Joyce plans to send Faith a gift in response to the “sweetest letter” he’s ever received.
“We wanted to have the opportunity to say thank you and we have now been able to do that. We hope Faith and her family have a very merry Christmas,” he said.
