A PENNY'S WORTH OF GODWINKS

A PENNY'S WORTH OF GODWINKS

SQuire Rushnell

“My Dad saved pennies.

When he passed away my Aunt told me about the poem of ‘Pennies from Heaven’ by C. Mashburn.

        '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.'

After that I’ve found pennies and keep them in a special box to remind me of Dad.

One day I met a homeless man on the street. I gave him some money as well as my business card in case he needed a reference in looking for work.

A few weeks went by and I received a card at work. The outside of the envelope said, ‘A penny for your thoughts.’

It was from the homeless man, with a shiny 2006 penny inside!

He never said anything about the penny, just included it.

He had no way of knowing what pennies meant to me. That was a GODWINK!”

The last stanza is our reminder:

         "It may be a penny from heaven

         That an Angel's tossed to you."

Many good wishes for Godwinks.
