Miss You Monday – 12/8/14

Dear Mom,

I find a lot more pennies now. Before, I didn’t know that was actually a thing with meaning, or that there was actually a poem about it. I don’t even remember how I learned about found pennies and that they are not just lost. I don’t just find them on the ground. I find them in my car, in my pockets, in my dresser drawers, in places where money doesn’t make sense to be found.

“Pennies from Heaven”

I found a penny today
Just laying on the ground,

But it’s not just a penny
This little coin I’ve found.

Found pennies come from heaven,
That’s what I’ve been told,
By Angels watching over us
From their clouds of gold.

When an Angel thinks of you
They toss a penny down,
Sometimes just to cheer you up
To make a smile from your frown.

So don’t pass by that penny
When you’re feeling blue,
It may be a penny from heaven
That an Angel’s tossed to you.

“In God We Trust” is not a phrase
Just printed on a penny,
It’s something to remember
When your troubles seem like many.

So when you’re down and it seems
Your life has a blue tint,
That penny on a sidewalk
May be truly “heaven-cent.”

I always pick them up now, and always feel a little better after finding them. But really, did you have to send your grandson thirty-five cents? Did you hear him say “It’s because Nanny likes me better!”?

Thanks for whatever you send me, Mom. I miss you.
