Today is "Giveback Tuesday" and I'm off to the post office to mail another painted stone for this lovely lady's collection.
At the time I started painting rocks, my mother entered a nursing home far from where I lived. The adjustment to this new living arrangement was traumatic for my mom. So, to brighten her existence and let her know I was thinking of her, I started mailing little, painted stones.
After my mother left this world, I learned of another senior going through a tough time. Aha! I
knew just the thing to bring a smile to her face and make the transition
a little less traumatic - painted rocks!
how ordinary rocks come alive with a little paint and bring joy and smiles to all who see them.
P.S. Here's a little secret: It's just as joyful giving these painted rock gifts as receiving them.
P.P.S. A miniature painted stone nativity scene is what I sent to this dear lady today.
