Last fall, on a camping trip, my husband found a rock painted with a mandala design. On the back was the hashtag #WCPR and the phrase, “Keep, or re-hide.”
I did a little research and discovered that WCPR stands for “West Coast Painted Rocks” and painting and hiding rocks as random acts of kindness is their mission.
And just like that, I had a new hobby.
Last night I hid painted Valentine rocks at the local grade school. This morning, I got love in return. Best. Investment. Ever.
Even better? I’ve been asked to come to school and teach the kids how to paint rocks. And to tell them why I hide them for others to find.
Because it’s fun.
Because it’s kind.
Because it’s love.

This is really fabulous! I can’t wait to hear more!
Thanks, Melissa. It’s a pretty special school for me. My grandmother, father, myself, my husband, and both our kids all attended this tiny, rural school. It feels wonderful to stay connected.
What a beautiful hobby. Love it!
