Enright now it is time for a little sunshine. Our series, good morning, sunshine, is dedicated to people who bring a little extra light to our live. We partnered with ABC to introduce you to a woman who is spreading love with her movement, nothing but love notes and doing it one thank you note at a time. meet the woman in red, white and blue who is a hero to the heroes. Just wanted to stop and say thank you for what you guys do. Thank you so much for the Reporter: Handing them handwritten letters of support. And this morning she's saying -- Good morning, sunshine. my name is Natalie Reilly. I handwrit thank you notes and deliver them to first responders, firefighters, veterans. I either let the notes on their truck or walk up to them and say thank you reminding these people who go out on the front lines that they are loved. Reporter: Natalie Reilly started this four years ago when her mother was fighting terminal cancer handing out the notes together brought them joy. We handed out like 50 in like three or four hours. By the time we got home she was laughing and smiling and we did it every day since and it changed the last two years of her life. It just changed everything. Reporter: Since then the 51-year-old from California has hand delivered more than 10,000 letters that she wrote herself to men and women across a dozen states. At this Arizona fire station. Hey, you guys. A group of veterans and first responders who were deeply moved by her loving words told us that Reilly's letters are a gift. I open up the note and it starts out with dear firefighter. Dear blue. Would you edit the crying if I start crying. Thank you with all my heart for all you do. You're my hero. I appreciate you. Who does that? This woman does that. I know people don't always like police officers as much. I had a gruesome shift. That note completely turned it around. It sits in my office. I look at the note. It always brings a smile to my I think these notes are powerful. I've seen it. I've felt it. Reporter: After a police motorcycle accident sent officer Francisco Martinez to a hospital it was Reilly who encouraged local famies to write for than 100 get well soons sent to his bedside and he says it made a difference. I think without these notes, I probably would have called it in and just said, hey, I'm broken. I'm never going to be a police officer again but these love notes actually gave me the strength and made me want to do whatever I have to do to be a police officer and get back. So many people are negative and it's difficult to sometimes focus on that positivity and her note immediately did that for me. She is one of the people that will make this world a better place. Reporter: For making it all right for the people who make it all right, she's our good morning, sunshine. For "Good morning America," Steve osunsami, ABC news, sun city, Arizona. Our thanks to Natalie for and we really enjoy partnering with local stations all across the stations helping bring stories like that do you know someone who brings sunshine to your life. We want to hear from you.
