That's How Blessings Work (Reciprocity)

"You know, this is the second one of these I've seen today," the cashier at the grocery store says, admiring our bag. Its red plastic mesh is printed with pictures of the Virgin of Guadalupe gazing out with a look of placid beneficence.

She rubs the picture with both hands, and smiling broadly, says, "She takes such good care of us!"

My bag, and my day, both feel a little lighter, like they've been blessed.
