Linda from Coos Bay Oregon

Name Linda Cruz How Did You Hear About The Kindness Rocks Project?

I stumbled upon it while looking at painted rocks on Facebook.


Where? (Location)

Coos Bay Oregon

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.
