Three of us, while walking down the street, saw the same penny on the ground.
My daughter got there first.
The penny was face down. I have always thought that face up, a penny brings extra good luck. And bottoms up, it was simply money – a present from the Universe – and good for that reason. In fact, either way it seemed a little ungrateful to ignore a gift right out there in front of you.
Anyway, she got there first and because it was face down she flipped it over, then continued walking.
Startled, I asked what that was about.
“I turned it over so it would be luck for someone else,” was her reply. She can be very generous like that.
Her toddler son, my grandson, and the third person in our party watched with great interest. I wonder what he thought of it all?
