A woman was left speechless after she received an anonymous letter filled with cash and a note explaining the reason for it.
Reddit user stehigs321 decided to share a photo of the letter and the money inside, leaving everyone stunned. It turns out a person had stolen her wallet years ago and is now reaching out as a way of an apology.
According to the letter, the thief had robbed her to pay for drugs…
The letter reads:
“Dear [name redacted]
About 5 1/2 years or so ago I did something very terrible to you, I stole your wallet out of your purse. I was a drug addict wanting to take money from whoever I could to get my next high. I didn’t even know you, I pick pocketed you and took it right out of your purse. I took the Best Buy card you had in it and whatever cash that was in it and threw the wallet in a trash can next to a store.
Not too long after that I landed in a treatment facility and got sober. I’ve been sober for 4 years now and just recently found your Best Buy card in a bag of old stuff, I looked up your name and found where you worked. So here I am.
I can’t imagine the frustration and despair I put you through not to mention all the time and effort looking for it and getting all new stuff. It is unforgivable what I have done but I would like to pay you a small amount of money for it.
I will also never hurt someone in that way ever again and will continue to live an honest life.
I wish you nothing but happiness, prosperity, and good health.”
I’m sure this woman never in a million years expected to get a letter, let alone any money back from the thief who stole her wallet, but she was pleasantly surprised. While things like this don’t usually happen, it’s a good reminder that it’s never too late for forgiveness.
Have you ever tried to make things right after a mistake that you made?
