My nephew, whom I was extremely close to, died just before Thanksgiving this past year. Since then, I've been finding pennies, at least once a day, everwhere - and I never carry cash at all. Everytime I find one something good happens. I've found them in a box with a pair of boots in them in the back of the closet, in the driveway, at the grocery store in one of the aisles. They make me laugh now and I just wonder where I'll find one the next day.

A couple months ago my car started wobbling and then all of a sudden the front driver's side tire came flying off the car and bounced over four lanes of traffic (which was at a red light-thank you) I turned the car hard and it just made it into the driveway just off the road at a gas station and immediately jumped out and ran to get the tire. I was so lucky no one got in an accident. When I got back to the car and opened the door - what did I find? A shiny new penny on the driver's side seat. I remember looking up and saying, "Thank you James."

After I bought the new car I was leaving the dealership building and the minute I opened the door there was another penny right there on the ground. I picked it up and laughed. When I got home I was looking at the paperwork and they had shorted me $500 on my downpayment.

At first I said outloud, "Send me the lottery numbers and not these damn pennies!" But he's sort of giving me the lottery in small increments over time.
