A Penny

I found a penny today, 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 my Grandma told me.
She said Angels toss them down. Oh, how I loved that story.

She said when an Angel misses you, They toss a penny down;
Sometimes just to cheer you up, and make a smile from a 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.

So...if you find a penny and you're feeling blue
Remember, An Angel is watching over you.

Have A Great Day

    ...for your thoughts. I thought it might be. Interesting supposition that, goes along with the Santa Clause myth but good for a laugh. Read mine -If There Be No God -

    What a great way to think about the finding of a penny! It is no longer an inconsequential object - it is a gift! ! !
