You know that saying about pennies from heaven? They say that when you find a penny on the ground, it’s a sign that someone in heaven is thinking about you. After the day I had, that might be true.
I had a big day today, getting one step closer to my future job as a teacher. When I was heading back to the job placement center after lunch, I found two pennies in the parking lot. I picked them up, said thanks to my mom for the encouragement and walked in to talk to a college counselor.
Things went better than I expected and I left there with myself much closer to my teaching degree. I was very pleased with myself.
Then I dropped a few books off at the library, before I picked up the kids from school. It was then that I found another penny in the parking lot. This time, as I picked it up, I knew it was mom’s way of telling me she was proud of me. It brought a tear to my eye, knowing she was watching over me still.
Some people would tell me that those pennies were not from heaven. They just fell out of a person’s pocket. But I don’t believe that. I believe that they are from my mom.
