I had a LUCKY day!

Yesterday was a strange day. I drove to the store to buy groceries. When I came out and started to drive, I noticed something weird flapping on my windshield on the right hand side. I drove a little bit, made sure I wasn’t being followed – nowadays, we have to be careful – got out of my car and saw it was one-dollar bill under my windshield wiper.

I immediately did what we do, went for my phone. Imagine, of all the days to leave my phone at home. I could not capture the BIG event!

It had been raining, so the one-dollar bill was wet. Seems to me, someone must have gotten out of their car, saw the one-dollar bill, rather than keep it, put it under my windshield wiper. WHAT other scenario could it be?

I didn’t know what to do with it. I mean, I could have kept it, but did not feel like it was truly mine. So, I decided to pay it forward. When I got out of my car, I walked by an apartment building and put the one-dollar bill in front of the door for THE NEXT PERSON TO FIND!

This felt like one of those TV shows where they have a hidden camera and they want to see what you would do in a situation. Well, that’s what I did.

Years ago, I was walking with two women to our cars after work. It was really windy outside. One of them kept complaining about work associates, it sounded terrible. I told her she needed to stop. I didn’t want to hear it. Just as I was saying that — a gust of wind, brought a $20 bill right at my feet.

WOW — I immediately grabbed it and showed the lady. See, if you say, “GOOD things,” you will be “REWARDED.” We ALL had a big laugh! Too bad it wasn’t a $100, but no complaints.

The SECOND thing that happened to me today was seeing a RAINBOW. My phone could not capture it’s beauty, but it was a HUGE rainbow, mostly hidden by the clouds. Unfortunately, it was the tail end, it was fading fast. I did my best to take a picture, hopefully, you can see it.

So – I’m still SMILING!

Every once in a while, we just FEEL that LUCK might be on our side!

  1. What an interesting moment. I think I would’ve done the same thing – pay it forward – but who knows until you’re actually IN the situation, right? Someone was either a Good Samaritan, (thinking the bill belonged to you) or decided to put you to a moral test without being present. Good on you for paying it forward. The result could be much more meaningful than whatever you would’ve spent the money on.

    1. I think it would have been different if I found the money on my own, no one around, but since someone had actually put it on my car… that made it feel different. Anyhow, it still felt like GOOD FORTUNE was coming to me. 🙂


  2. HI Monica,
    I love this! Lucky and blessings keeps following you, what great thing will happen next?
    I love that you brought a little joy and wonder to someone else.
    It would be a great TV show or book, about what each person chooses to do with found money and how it affects the direction of their lives.
    Blessings! ♥♥
