Shiny Pennies From Heaven

Thursday, April 24, 2003

Daddy finds a shiny penny in the hospital lobby this morning. The morning Daddy's little Olivia receives her Angel wings. Olivia, Is That You?

I found a shiny penny

just laying on the ground.

But, it's more than just a penny,

this little coin I found.

Pennies come from Heaven,

or so that's what Iíve been told,

tossed to earth by Angels

to ease your deepest hurt.


For when an Angel misses you

they toss a penny down,

to fill your heart with cheer,

and make a smile out of your frown.

So when you see a shiny penny

gleaming brightly on the ground,

pick it up and treasure it

for an Angel tossed it down.

For his birthday, Daddy has two new charms to wear on his chain: Daddy has the Shiny Penny Olivia gave him, and the letter "O" with an Angel on it, to wear both of them close to his heart.
