Keep the change

April 27th, 2009

I just spent three days finding peace and presence. One afternoon while I was gone I called my husband to check in. He and Georgia were leaving Long Beach, where they had spent four hours touring the Aquarium and taken a long harbor cruise, a memorable first for both of them. Here’s Georgia’s on-the-spot report:

She: Mom, guess what?! I just found a dollar bill on the steps in front of me. And then I crossed the street and found a quarter!

Wherever you go, I hope you find $1.25 today, and keep the change. I hope I do too. Because it’s not ever where you’ve been. It’s where you are.

  5. No, Kristin, she didn’t treat Dad to coffee. I’m only just now tallying up the haul she brought home with her out of his wallet: new bracelet, new stuffed penguin. That turnstile only turns one way, it seems.
