A buck is just a buck? Sure, but it can be more.
A dollar is a tip - for luggage service, for a pint at the bar, for hailing a cab. A dollar is a kind gesture to the guy holding a cup out on the sidewalk downtown. It can mean the world to a kid when a first tooth is lost. Dollars are framed above cash registers at businesses to commemorate the beginning of something. They can mean a lot.
A dollar leads to adventure, it leads to hope, it leads to beginnings - the list goes on.
The lesson is not to overlook what's small or commonplace. Also worth your not overlooking:
- A smile
- A hug
- An idea
- A flower
- Eye contact
- A handshake
- Thank you notes
Pay attention, please.
