Pennies From Heaven

I keep finding pennies. Heads up too! I found like four in less than a week. I think it's a sign of something huge. Something good is comin' my way.

I don't know why I believe in silly superstitions like finding pennies or throwing pennies into fountains. It's childish, I know. But I really like the idea of living in a cosmic world where the universe or God or fate is constantly trying to communicate to people and guide them. I like feeling like there are messages from someone or some force that are trying to offer me help and encouragement.

So for whatever odd reason, pennies has always been one of those messages for me. It's a language I can understand and whoever is out there trying to communicate with me knows that.

When I was a little girl, I was always very conscious of the 'step on a crack, break your mother's back' thing. I'm not sure why, it is really ridiculous, but my mom has always had a bad back. It's something I was always aware of and always heard talk of. So the idea that there was anything I could do that might make that worse was terrifying. I still have a hard time walking on cracks. Haha.

Pennies, though, still make sense to me. I went through a weird phase where I'd flip a penny to make a tough decision. Heads, I'll go out with him. Tails, I won't. Something stupid like that. Really, I think that exercise just helped me figure out what it was that I really wanted to do. Because if I wanted to go out with him, for example, and it was tails, I'd be disappointed. And then I'd lose the confusion and realize what I really wanted.

So since the universe, the forces, the whatever out there knows that I get pennies, I think that four in less than a week means they've got something big to tell me. Something good really is comin' my way...
