When you go to the mall with your daughter, one of the last things you expect is to get a random but kindhearted gift from a total stranger. Nonetheless, that is exactly what one woman received.

Louise Sharp was at the mall with her daughter Jessica when she was approached by a little girl who randomly gave her flowers, a chocolate bunny and a sweet note. But, the message behind the random act of kindness is what really struck the mother.

"My grandad and I love everyone," the note read in a photo of it Sharp posted on Facebook, "so we love you. Please be kind to others and they will be kind to you. Tell someone you love them today."

The mother-daughter duo was walking along when they heard someone call out "excuse me." Sharp turned around--expecting someone to tell her she dropped something--but instead a little eight or 9-year-old girl handed her the gifts, she recalled.

The mother asked why the girl was giving her such a thing. She replied: "Because you're special, and people need to be told they're special. And we all need to be kind to each other. So these are off me and my Granddad," Sharp recounted.

This sweet moment left Sharp "completely gob smacked," but grateful.

"You have just completely made my day," Sharp said, "if not my year you inspirational girl, and I'll keep the note forever and look at it every time I feel I'm having a difficult day."
