Where? (Location): a path by the ocean    What inspired you to contact/join TKRP?  Because I paint rocks too

What was your initial reaction or impression when you stumbled upon the rock? Happiness

What did the rock have written on it?  Picture of a sand dollar

Any other thoughts, emotions comments, stories… I started painting rocks several years ago because since I like by the ocean and a river, I have great access to lots of smooth rocks which are perfect for painting. On Pinterest I saw a post about painting hearts on little rocks and leaving them so people could find them. That started my heart rock project. I have painted hundreds and on Sundays when some friends and I walk, we leave them for others to find; spreading a little love and happiness.

Good morning,  I have a new Facebook site, called South County Rock’s.  We are spreading the love one small rock at a time.

I started this on April 28, after returning from Florida. It is very big down there in Martin County. I now have over 500 members & very excited about the wonderful feedback that I am getting.

Rock on!

Regards,

What inspired you to contact/join TKRP?

The warmth and kindness I felt after reading the article on the Today.

What was your initial reaction or impression when you stumbled upon the rock?

Somebody gets it. Someone else gets that others are or there that are hurting and just maybe all they need is a kind word or a maybe even just a rock.

What did the rock have written on it? (You can attach pictures below)

It had no words. It had a simple little heart that made me smile.

Any other thoughts, emotions comments, stories…

I had gone to visit my son and his family over the holidays and I noticed that on their balcony were several little rocks that had been painted. Some of the rocks had pictures and others are just words, powerful, kind words. My son and his wife told me them how they would randomly find these awesome little gems while they were walking through the park. I thought, WOW! What an amazing way to make someones day. When I came home from my little vacation I started painting rocks of my own as I recently was deemed disabled and unable to work and suddenly found that I had a lot of time on my hands and now I think I get more joy out of knowing I made someone smile than they get from finding my rocks.

TKRP came into my life at a time when our family is facing many challenges. We just found at the my husband’s kidney cancer has spread after being cancer free for 4 years. We are about to battle cancer once again. I have started painting kindness rocks and are about to plant them around town. The rocks have been very therapeutic to me. It reminds me that everyone is faced with their own battle they are trying to conquer. The rocks also keep me positive and remind me of all the blessings we have.

Any other thoughts, emotions comments, stories…

I feel so honored to be a small part of TKRP which has such a huge impact on the people and rocks whose paths cross.

How Did You Hear About The Kindness Rocks Project? I have seen painted rocks all over my town of Sequim, Washington and heard something that if you find a rock, take it and then place it somewhere else. Not sure if that’s really the object, though. So, I ultimately found out about Kindness Rocks by Google.

Where Did You Find a Rock? Randomly Placed

Where? (Location) Point Wilson Lighthouse, Port Townsend, Washington

What inspired you to contact/join TKRP? I thought it was such a cool thing to find a cute rock when I was just waiting for my friend to use the restroom. I looked down and there it was. I felt like it was meant for me to see it…and thought it would be cool to try and track it through Kindness Rocks.

What was your initial reaction or impression when you stumbled upon the rock? I was elated to find the rock, because I really didn’t expect to find it at that moment.

What did the rock have written on it? (You can attach pictures below) The only writing was “KR on FB”

Any other thoughts, emotions comments, stories… I had heard something about people placing painted rocks in random places, but couldn’t remember if you’re supposed to leave them or take them and place them elsewhere (like Geocaching). I ultimately took the rock with the intention of placing it somewhere else, but I tried looking up the ‘KR on FB’ to track the rock, without success. After this encounter, I had the most amazing day. I was out with my best friend, showing her the sights of the area of which I’ve lived for 7 years, because she just moved here last week. After finding the rock, we went to a popular restaurant, which I had actually never tried before. It is a restaurant on the airport. We ended up meeting Jimmy Graham, who is a famous football player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was eating lunch at the same place and then left in his private airplane. If I wasn’t so starstruck, I would have thought to place the rock at the airport, but I forgot! It was the coolest day, ever and it all started with finding that awesome rock! 🙂
