“My dad used to say, ‘A penny is still a penny no matter how dirty it looks.’
Well, after he passed, I was feeling SAD for my loss. Speaking out loud I said, ‘I love you, Dad!’
Reaching for the car door I noticed a GLINT of light on the ground. It was a penny, new and beautiful!
I said, ‘Thanks Dad’!
The next day, I was waiting for a car tire to be replaced, still feeling sorry for myself. Again, I saw a GLINT of light on the ground.
This time I picked up the most DIRTY, DAMAGED, and STAINED PENNY ever seen. I pondered, ‘Keep it?’ ‘No, it’s ugly.’
Then, inside my mind, I heard Dad’s voice, ‘It's STILL WORTH a penny and IT'S FREE!’
The tire technician came out and announced that my car was ready to go. I asked him how much? He smiled: ‘It's part of our service … IT'S FREE!’
I've been saving every penny since then … and I have a whole lot of Godwinky moments to share."
In today’s busy world with frightening expenses, the effort to bend down to pick up a mere penny may seem worthless.
But, what if that GLINT … that somehow catches your eye… is a little doorway to a Godwink?I miss that, would you?
Wishes for a precious penny’s worth of Godwinks today!
