Last week, the plan was to meet some friends at a local strip mall and they would drive to a little theater in Rogers where Arsenic and Old Lace was being performed. The weather was perfect and as usual I arrived very early. It wasn't a problem since the area was relatively active, I enjoyed a little people watching while I waited.
I positioned myself just outside a Barnes and Noble bookstore and it wasn't long before two women walked out and headed for their car. One of the women bent down just after stepping down from the curb, as if to pick something up. It was a penny. She picked it up, looked at it, commented to her friend and then carefully placed it back on the pavement. They kept walking.
Five minutes passed when another couple (man and woman) exited and took the same route. The woman noticed the coin, bent down, picked it up, smiled and said something to the man pocketing the coin. Just at that moment...everything was right with the world!
I have no doubt the penny was facing heads up. That is the position for good luck and heavenly angels. What a fabulous random act of kindness.
