We are winding down our month of living in Portugal. As with any trip to Europe, we’re doing all we can to use up those euro coins since they are awkward to hold on to and aren’t necessary back in the United States. I was mentioning this to a friend, and she had a great suggestion.
Every time she leaves a country, she takes her left over cash and stashes it in unique public locations in the area. There is always a hope that it will brighten someone’s day when it’s discovered. Perhaps buy a meal or inspire someone else to leave cash stashes around for others, too.
People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. -Page 54 · Location 882 from Joy on Demand by Chade-Meng Tan
