The inspiration for the Bonny Brook slogan
"Rest and Be Thankful" is taken from words carved in
a stream-side rock in the Argyll Forest of the Scottish Highlands.
Some 200 years ago, an anonymous traveler stopped to rest and
refresh by the stream and carved the words "rest and be thankful"
into the stone. The spot has become an historic site and is marked
to this day. It just happens to be within the Thomasons' old stomping
grounds in Scotland and also expresses how you will feel at Bonny
Brook. Come "Rest and Be Thankful".
