Each time I perform an act of kindness, a part of me heals.

~Lupi Ngcayisa~

Rough on one side and smooth on the other…just like the balance of life. Place it in your hand, resting between your thumb and index finger and hold it…let it remind you that there is always something to be thankful for, no matter what your circumstance.  

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve said that to a random stranger as I handed them a JOLT Blessing Stone.  But each time, I walk away smiling.

At first, when you place it in their hands, they don’t know what to say. Why is this stranger giving me this?  The reason is simple.

I am broken.  We all are.  I realized that when I started writing about loss. We all share this human experience, with the beautiful joys, and the devastating losses.  No one is left out.

I approached my loss by trying to find gratitude for what remained, even when my heart was breaking.  And without a doubt, that approach saved me.

I believe that when bad things happen we have a choice.  To open or close our hearts. I decided to open mine, sharing my experience, hoping to help another on their own journey.

This approach did not change the pains of loss.  But it did alleviate some of the suffering.  It allowed me to remember my beautiful son in a way I feel he would be proud of…with gratitude.

The Blessing Stones are a tangible piece of hope. I give them away to people I meet on my travels, hoping that it brings them a little light into their day.

I want you to get in on the act.  I am giving away  two blessing stones for FREE.  You pay for the shipping.  Keep one, and find your person….and spread some hope.  Think about it…I bet you know one person right now who needs it.

The world is a complicated place. Help me spread some kindness and hope.  To request your free blessing stones, click here.
