I Got a Rock!

"I got a rock!" ~ Charlie Brown, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Saturday was a great day -- a great day for a road trip; a great day for sunshine, blue skies, and fall colors; a great day for a hike in the park with Piper. And, just in case I needed confirmation, I got a rock! Thanks to friends in both Lake Country and Door County, I now know about these lovely surprises that I have been finding all fall. I found this #MichelleMagpie rock in Potawatomi State Park on Saturday. Michelle's Instagram account explains: "It's not about racing to find the best rocks before anyone else can get there, or about how many rocks you can collect. It's not a game or a contest. It's about random acts of kindness -- sharing a little piece of art with a stranger or exchanging with a friend. It's about people getting together to paint and laugh. It's about making someone's day brighter or sending a little message of encouragement to someone who needs it. It's about positive energy that we send out in the smallest things without expecting anything in return." I took this rock back to Delafield with me and will leave it where someone else can have a great day too! #kindnessrocks
