Do you pick up a penny?
I do and I did, just Thursday going to lunch with WW.
It was a bright shinny one, glimmering against the asphalt.

I smiled, because to me it meant an angel was thinking of me.
I don't remember where that idea came from, but I like it.
In this day where to some, pennies are a nuisance,
I wondered how many people would bother, or even see it?
I get on a random thoughts for this blog...
then I check google to make sure I'm not nuts!
And, I always learn something!

Today, the first thing I saw was this:
"A penny with the tails side up should be 
turned over for another person to find."
I had never heard that! There is a good & bad side? 
Mine, luckily had been head side up.

Many people believe any penny you find is good luck. 
Have you heard this common rhyme?
"Find a penny, pick it up. All day long, you'll have good luck."

Have you heard the phrase ... “a penny for your thoughts"?

Or ... "a penny saved is a penny earned!"

And, it is definitely a lucky day when 
I open my mailbox to find ...

this stunning work of art on a postcard from ...

wonderful artist, friend & everyone's favorite,  
Beatriz Helton.  You'd love her too! 
I've mentioned her here, here, here & here.

And a bonus, 
after scanning, I discovered the page that opened to ...

Thanks Beatriz for this fabulous gift of your talent, time
& artistry, but even more for your kind friendship and 
for making this a better planet by you being in it! ♥

A smile for Wednesday ...
