Pennies from Heaven

Happy TGIF guys and dolls!  How are you?  Great, I hope!  We finally made it to the weekend - woo hoo!!!  Do you have any fun and exciting plans happening in your world this weekend?  We don't have a lot going on, really.  My hubby has to work inventory all night Saturday night, so I will have the night to myself.  My son gets off early, but you know, he's an 18 yo and has a life so I won't see him at all - HA!

Anyway, yesterday when I was leaving the office and walking through the parking garage, I happened to look down and saw this penny and immediately smiled.  I don't know if you ever take the time to stop and pick up a penny, but it was something my maternal grandfather always did when he was alive. To me it's extra special, and I never walk past a penny laying on the ground.  It's my sign from him that he is saying hello.  :)  So.... do you have any funny qualms, or traditions that you do to remember your loved ones who have left this world, but not your memories?
Have a happy Friday guys and dolls!  I will catch you on the flip side! :)
Lots of love and hugs,


  1. I don't have any traditions or anything, but my grandma passed two years ago and the last few days she was with us she always had these birds next to her window. A few days after she passed (and still today) we see specifically a blue bird and a Cardinal flying together. To me I think that the blue bird is my grandma and the cardinal is my grandpa.. I never met him. Sometimes I see them together, sometimes apart. I've never seen them more than when my grandma passed.

  2. We have a saying here that says see a penny pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck. My nana however always told us that it only brought good luck if you then passed it on to the next stranger you met.
