Find A Penny!

How does the saying go.......Find a penny, pick it up, all day long, you'll have good luck!!!

I had the most interesting thing happen today. I was at the Chevron getting a morning treat. As I was walking out of the store a lady whom I didn't know said to me "I think I'm supposed to give this to you." I looked in her hand and there was a penny. She made a comment about finding a penny but then she continued on with "I think I'm supposed to give it to the first person I see, and that's you!" I thanked her and took the penny, put it in my pocket and walked to my car smiling. I have rubbed the penny all day......I need all the luck I can get (especially at Fair time)!!
I'm not sure if that's exactly how it goes or not, was I supposed to be the one to pick it up for the good luck, or maybe, just maybe, because someone was kind enough to share her luck I get extra blessed! I must admit that small gesture made my day. :)

I must say that's a pretty great story. The lady could have just walked on by and gone about her day. Guess she knew you really needed a small act of kindness

Its your lucky day.

You are back to being at the computer late nights and early mornings... the fair must not be letting you sleep.
