Gratitude Garden Grows In Guelph – GNSOTD Mon, Mar 30th 2020

It started in hopes of raising the spirits of front line health care workers and showing them support in these troubling times. That’s what it says in the post on the Facebook group Guelph Rocks.

Put together by Jaclyn Gordon and her family, it’s quite a few painted rocks, assembled into a Gratitude Garden, and placed in front of Guelph General Hospital.

It started on March 22nd with a few rocks from Jaclyn and her family, but has grown; both the garden and the idea. She has since had to update her post to express her feelings on the garden growing and how she hopes everyone who participates in their own is being safe.

It’s a lovely idea to show your gratitude to those who cannot stay home at this time, especially those who are working in the places where the virus is found. But it’s also important to respect them and do what you can to limit the spread. So practice your hand washing (20 seconds), your social distancing (2 metres), and your general cleanliness (wipe down frequently touched surfaces) to keep healthy.

Your Good News Story of the Day also includes another growing trend of gratitude; but you’ll have to go see it here. Painted rocks have been a way to spread positive messages for a while now, but another reminder of safety; if you’re going to pick up a strange rock, please use protective gloves and dispose of them appropriately. If you just want to leave rocks for others to enjoy we encourage that wholeheartedly.
