Kindness Rocks!

If you frequent Riverstone or Falls Park you have probably seen painted rocks (or at least have seen people searching for them!) I remember the first painted rocks I encountered, they were dropped off at my doorstep by a stranger. I won’t ever forget opening up my door and finding those adorable painted birds and llamas. The artist must have been someone I know because how else would they have known of my love for those creatures? I was delighted and held on to them for some time before re-hiding them for others to enjoy.

You see, that is the part of painting rocks that is so appealing to me. Imagining the joy in someone’s face as they discover a treasure hidden in plain sight. My little family frequents local parks and businesses leaving behind trails of characters and encouraging messages for those who come behind us. Oftentimes I don’t know if the art is ever found or if it just sits where I place it. However, every now and again I will see someone post my handiwork on Facebook (#CDA ROCKS). The best is when my kids find a painted rock of their own! If you enjoy painting or drawing I highly encourage you to try your hand at the Kindness Rocks Project. I bet it will bring you more joy than you would expect.
