I found 22 cents in a parking lot today. I can’t remember last time I found even a penny. I believe both pennies were heads up but I wouldn’t know for sure because I saw it, yet it was only a quick glance walking by. I walked thinking not to pick it up. I put my stuff in my car ready to close the passenger side door. Then, like something was beckoning me towards it, walked back and picked the two dimes and pennies. My thought if I didn’t pick it up someone else will. That’s not so bad. But my inner self guess really wanted it?
I woke today sore, exhausted, depressed. Absolutely no makeup on. Been doing that for awhile now- only lipstick would apply. However, today, I was so excited for a science Milk Art I wanted to do with the kids that I forgot to apply color on my lips. That’s how makeup-less I am.
But when I went to the store for construction paper, leaving the store I found the change. In the past when I find them (so rare), I wouldn’t even acknowledge they were there. It’s just something on the ground. For some reason, today I acknowledged it and felt it hit a deeper part of me.
It was like that 22 cents lit up a flameless candle deep within. I smiled feeling today’s going to be lucky day for me. Who knows what’s in store. In fact, usually that feeling I wouldn’t believe. That I’m lucky. Yeah, right! But this time… this time my head believed it. It was weird and something I usually don’t have. It made me feel a brighter moment than where I was at. I hope today will be more brighter as it goes on.
Happy brighter day!
