“See a penny; pick it up. All year long you’ll have good luck.”
I believe in lucky pennies, pennies from heaven, pennies I find on the ground. Some days are quite simply penny days. I walk out the door – from a store, the Y, the dentist – and I just know I’m going to look down and find a penny. The dimes and quarters are a surprise find, but I have an inkling when it comes to pennies. Below are the eight pennies I found in February, the month I started blogging. The month I met the first of many special blogging friends. That cannot be a coincidence!
I think each of my eight found pennies symbolizes one of the bloggers I met in February. Some have become online friends; some simply gift their writing talents. All have added positively to my daily reading enjoyment and to my understanding of our global reach.
Crone-ing – a weaver and gardener who has reached her wisdom age and is willing to share what she’s learned
61 Musings – an introvert extraordinaire who has provided a haven and library of insights for fellow introverts
Life Is Good – an experienced blogger who gives time, energy and encouragement to newbies; co-host of A to Z
Laineyrain – she’s like the cream in my coffee; appears in my reader early most mornings and usually elicits a chuckle or a smile
Becoming Cliché – the best snowman picture (sadly re-purposed by sun and spring by the time this posts), cutest tortoise pictures and wisdom in her words
Happy Holly Project – she makes me laugh
Words ‘n Pics – fantasy in her photography; illusions in her visions; I never know what I’ll see when I visit, but it’s always worth the trip
Lies Jack Kerouac Told Me – my token male penny? Expressive writing; worthwhile topics. Doesn’t post often but fun when he does
I haven’t found any pennies on the ground in March or April. No worries. I have acquired so many talented, inspiring blogger buddies during the April’s A to Z Challenge, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot. You are all truly “found treasures” and I look forward to giving you shout-outs, growing our friendships, laughing and crying with you, and learning all the while. Cheers!
Note: I’m still on the road with my un-co-operative laptop. I am reading your posts every day, but cannot respond to comments on mine or yours! I will be back online Saturday or Sunday. Talk to you then!
