Fake Money does not equal fake blessings – Pay it forward

I live a simple life on a strict budget so when I was out with my dog this morning and found twenty US dollars on the ground with no other details…I was stoked…Being from Ireland I am naive so it never occurred to me that my find could be fake…Meaning that the twenty dollar bill was a fake twenty dollar bill…Considering this find a true blessing it made my morning…Now if I found a wallet or anything with details all of that would be turned into the office where I rent or to our local police department because I would not want anyone to go without what matters most to them such as their wallet and keys and valuables…I was in need of taxi because the weather here in Texas is very cold unusually cold…So taxi came and I told the very kind driver about my find and he also thought it was a blessing so I paid for my taxi with that twenty dollar bill…I acted in good faith and the driver understood this…Upon my return home with the same taxi driver I was told that the twenty dollar bill was fake money…I was floored and humbled by this and I said I will pay the difference…This driver refused to take payment from me…But not to be out done I called his boss and ensured that taxi was paid for…I do not want anyone to be out on account of my stupidity and naive nature…However, while shopping for a few things today I saved a total of twenty dollars from coupons…I felt that was the universe blessing me with savings so that I could pay what was owed…My lesson that I learned was this never trust found money and always check to ensure it is real money…When I shop I make sure I leave a small cushion a small amount in case something like this happens…I never had a lot of money to work with but I am doing much better within my means…Did you know that being debt free is a form of wealth as is good health?…Many today incur large debts which is the same as being poor for they are obliged to pay off mountains of debt which can be very overwhelming…I know I am not much and in the big picture I am but a small mouse or rabbit mystically speaking…Mystical language is not a language many understand and that is fine…I am a huge fan of folklore and tales and so my blog is my tale…My tale is no fairy tale as my tale is not an easy story…All the same by the grace of God and with the help of heaven I manage day by day one step at a time…Another part of my interesting day was this…I was paying for my modest grocery items when I observed my neighbor a man I do not know but whom I consider a neighbor as he was ahead of me in line…Hence a neighbor…This man was trying to pay for a small grocery item but came up short by a few dollars…I offered to cover his cost as I could manage it as my way of paying it forward…He refused which I respected…It is hard to accept help and besides he had the money but just not with him at the time…I share this because I do that a lot if someone is short a few bucks I will chip in…I cannot afford to every time but when I can manage it I pay it forward…I have earned some cents from my blog just from the advertisements on it…Just under five dollars earned to date…So I suppose my blog makes cents after all though it may not make sense to some…
