A #loveletterMD at Patapsco Valley State Park

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

"Hello! You are a very special person who found this note for a reason. You deserve this small token of love and so much more!"

This is the beginning of a #lovelettermd that my friend and I came across during a hike in Pataspco Valley State Park today. Patapsco Valley is one of my favorite places to go for a hike and I do so frequently ... it's quiet, beautiful and the perfect place to recharge. I've experienced its changing scenery over the years, have talked to countless strangers, have enjoyed the waterfall and the views many, many times but today was the first time I found a #lovelettermd. It touched my heart.

"You are a beautiful, intelligent person who is loved. Life can be stressful and trying but know it will always pass. Take chances, do what you love and above all else be kind... Be kind to the world, be kind to strangers, and be kind to yourself. I hope this brings you joy and inspires you to spread love and kindness too! Do more of what makes you HAPPY! Love, Love!"


Dear Secret #lovelettermd Writer, I want you to know that you are a beautiful person. By spreading your love and showing such kindness to strangers, you made my day week. I drove home feeling loved and inspired. I want to thank you for that and I promise to cherish your words always.  

As we continued on our hike, we came across even more kindness and inspiration.. a painted rock encouraging us to Be the Reason Someone Smiles today. Can it get any more beautiful than this? 

#lovelettermd, have you come across one in your community? Please share if you have!

I read about a person who leaves these love letters - although I don't remember where I read it, or where the person was. What a beautiful thing to find. You made ME smile with your telling of the story. 

Have a great day.
