This idea is inspired especially by the healing journeys of
my mother–Jane, my father–Paul,
my brother-in-love–Kevin, & my friends–Paula, Lee Anne,Stephanie, Larry & Cecilia.
It is dedicated to human courage and love;
to people seeking strength and healing;
and to YOU for the power you have to use your time and energy in acts of KINDNESS and HEALING.
Every day–in a place probably not too far from where you are right now– people are struggling, fighting, hurting, hoping, praying. People in your community are getting news and taking medicine that is hard to handle … hard to take. They are needing to find–to make–the strength and courage they need to believe that healing is possible and that it will be coming their way, soon.
Some of these people are alone. Some may have a strong supportive group of friends and family around them. Regardless, ALL could benefit from knowing that a “stranger” cares about them, and is honoring them and their journeys through a simple act of kindness.
Consider making this KINDNESS project alone or with some of your friends and/or your family, and then sharing your creations with your area cancer treatment healing places, hospital waiting rooms, or anywhere you think some inspiration is needed. You are invited to leave a comment below sharing how and where you will be gifting your scrolls.

Here is a link to a very simple downloadable TUTORIAL (one page) to make and distribute Gems of Love: beautiful paper blessing scrolls, each containing a powerful quote or prayer intended to raises and celebrate the person who opens it. No art or craft experience is necessary … and kiddos enjoy this too! (Right click to download or click image to open PDF now.)
2. And here is the link to a collection of beautiful QUOTES (10-page PDF) to use with the tutorial.(Right click to download or click image to open PDF now.)
3. Leave blessing scrolls for a special gift of encouragement for a beautiful stranger. (I like to think that each message finds the person it is intended for.)
