Finding Money: A Coincidence Or A Message
I have written previously about how my wife is always finding money. It's usually coins but we have a big pot full of these that she has picked up on our walks.
She has been having a a bit of a lull recently, however, but this morning (Sunday) on a walk to get the newspapers she found a one penny coin.
"Huh," I said, "You'll have to do better than that."
"It's another one for the pot," she said, "but I must be due something more worthwhile very soon."
We bought our newspapers, though I'm not sure why I still want to read them - so much negativity, gloom and doom. But, anyway, we headed home and just before we turned into our road, Karin reached down and picked up something from the pavement.
"What's that another penny?" I asked.
And it was a £10 banknote (about $14) all scrunched up.
"That's a bit more like it," I joked and this time we couldn't return it to its rightful owner - as we did the last time we - sorry, she - found £10.
I think Karin finds money because she expects to find money and also because of something her father once said. Though he died when she was only four her mother told her that he had a saying about how there is money waiting to be picked up on the streets, if you know how to pick it up. It's something that has always stuck in her mind - or maybe it's her father saying, "I'm still about and looking after you."
