This Buck Doesn't Stop

So I sat there for a moment in a predicament, alone with the stunted inspiration. Then looked around a little more. It turned out that in my wallet I had a dollar bill. Looking at it a little more thoroughly, it became clear that there was very little writing surface on the dollar. But I could write something...
So I took my pen and wrote something like this:
"This is a very special dollar - given to you with love. Do not keep it. Do not spend it. Pass it on. Give it to someone else with love, and watch it spread."
I then decorated the bill with hearts, trying to fill it with as many good vibes as I possibly could.
Sitting near me was a woman who was also waiting for a ride. She seemed a bit anxious. I walked up to her and said "This is for you."
Surprised to be given a dollar, she took a second look and read it. All of a sudden her mood shifted from anxious to warm and she gave me a big hug and thanked me.
I realized that if this was the reaction from just one stranger, then this wave of warmth would probably continue on indefinitely.
My ride came, and we drove off. Somehow, though, I feel this is not the end of the story.
