Topic: Pennies from Heaven
Lainy, I automatically thought of you, when the other day, I looked down as I neared my car, and saw not one, but two pennies about 2 feet apart on the parking lot,. I NEVER find money on the ground....so I decided that this was a sign from someone who has passed on,...maybe my dad, most likely.....trying to tell me that everything is going to be okay. Since I was little, I've had premonitions about things that were going to happen....and unfortunately, they were usually portending someone's death, but not always. My dad also had these things happen to him as well so I figure that somehow, dad and I, and maybe our little grandson share some special ability. It's not like we're mediums, but we get a glimpse of something to happen. When our 2 day old, premature infant died, we were told (because of strange circumstances) to start adoption proceedings immediately. As I was waiting to be dismissed, laying in bed, I suddenly had a vision of a baby playing on a patchwork quilt and I had a sudden sense of peace. When I snapped back to reality, I told my mom that it was going to be okay.....there would be another baby...somehow, someway. There's a very long story behind it all, but I won't go into all of it here. But, also when I was at Mayo 35-36 years ago to have the volleyball fibroid removed from my uterus, (it was successful, despite the dire predictions of local specialists), I went to the gift shop with my two roommates (yes, we went shopping while patients...I was the only one with pockets in my robe, so we put all the money in them and put ourselves on the elevator). I saw a small plaque that read, "God gave us memories that we might have roses in December." That was in 1978 , three months after our baby son died, and in December of 1979, our only living child, a son, was born. He is my "rose in December." There were other various signs that indicated this was going to happen ....and in December.
