Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Messages of Hope

--by Pen, posted Jan 29, 2023
I painted some flat stones in different colours and then painted on words that someone might need to hear: "you are worthy, you are lovable, you are good enough, Love, Trust, Joy, Hope, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gratitude, Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion = LOVE."

Then I walked around my local park and placed them on benches or just off the path. The next day I went back and noticed that the ones on the benches were still there but the others had been picked up.

Maybe they assumed it was in remembrance of someone - not sure - but it means many more are going to see the message and be blessed by it.

The stone tumbler machine is a less toxic approach and makes rocks and stones "pop" out or catch the eye easily in nature. If this is the overall idea? Pinga accepts this and appreciates the raok.

My daughter did same round her village and some disappeared, she thought someone had stolen them, but later overheard someone say how lovely that someone had gone to the trouble to share these lovely messages and how they had cheered up her and hers soin;s day, so they took one to hide elsewhere. Well done! :)
