'Word Rock' found!

"My husband and I found this Word Rock at Cabrillo National Monument! It was poignant. We were happy, enjoying each other in that beautiful setting! Your rock added to our joy. Pretty neat project! We carried the rock to a different section of the park and put it down for some other lucky person(s) to find".


The interesting part of this story is that I've never been at Cabrillo Monument and this is one of my old 'word rocks". So interesting to think that it was moved from one place to another till it comes to Cabrillo! Love to share these rocks!

The picture attached are my two amazing cousins and my whole family thanks you so much for the Oh Happy Day! rock we found at a fountain at the Irvine Spectrum.

Raphael Camara is from Philippines and is spending his summer vacation in Europe. Guess what he found?!

'Hey guys! 

About a couple of days ago I arrived at St. Moritz Bahnhof, after a 3 hour bus ride from Lugano. It was day 2 of my journey, and what a beautiful thing it was to board the bus with this rock, giving me this wonderful message!

Hope you guys don't mind me keeping it - it makes a great souvenir :)

Another 'word rock' found!

Isn't Leena adorable?!

We found this rock at Solana Beach!! My sister and I walked from Cardiff pushing a stroller on her first big workout of the season!! We got caught in the rain and by the tide. We retreated to land to dry off. Wet shoes and all...we decided to trudge forth!! My sister found the rock along the sidewalk and got excited!! Yay, "Look..I ROCK!!" As we ate our picnic lunch, I read your story from my iPhone. We enjoyed being part of this project and such a neat, positive chain!! In the picture, is my niece (Leena) showing off the rock. She wants to keep it because she says it makes her happy!

Thank you!!
In Rock & Love,
Julie, Jana & Leena

Word Rocks in St. Moritz, Switzerland, thanks to volunteer Gabriel!

'Word Rocks' found by these cute little girls

Hello Antonio and Carolina!  

This message to you is coming tardy, but still filled with heart felt thanks and appreciation at this kind gesture you do for spreading some cheer and wonderment in the community.  

I wanted to give you the story on how we came across the Word Rocks one day in a neighborhood park in Encinitas, California.  It was a typical weekend day for our family; family breakfast and then an adventure walk/bike/wagon ride to the park with the dogs.  We happen to come across a neighbor friend and her girls (who are very close in age to our own girls, Aspen - 5 and Magnolia - 2) who joined us for our walk.  After running and giggling and climbing trees the girls came across one rock near a tree, and then another one on their bike seat.  Well, the wonder and excitement that ensued from the girls on this secret treasure lasted all morning, and straight into the an afternoon excursion to a nursery where they put together some fairy gardens (picture attached).  Needless to say, the Word Rocks was the crowning jewel of the garden and the fairies have left plenty of notes since complementing on its usage.  

So, once again...thanks Thanks THANKS for this amazingly kind-hearted gesture that makes childhood a little more magical.
