My day started with what some may call meditation, others may call prayer. Then I was off to the Dr’s office, a place I find myself at quite frequently as of late. My latest perplexing issue, double vision. A condition I find very frustrating when I want to read road signs or figure out if the moon and a half, is full or not. Anyway, I paid the visit and was leaving when I spied a rather used recyclable on the ground near my car. I, being the recycle hound that I am went and picked it up. As I strolled back to my car, I noticed a very shiny new dime glistening on the ground. Great, I’ll take that too. Picked it up and slipped it into my pocket.
Next stop, the local post office, or, for our quaint little town, the gathering place. As I was on my exit there was an elderly gentleman hobbling out with much effort with his trusty well used cane. Seeing the need, I was happy to be able to open the door for this elder. He was dressed in his veterans badges, as if to say he had a reason to be hobbling. Didn’t matter to me why he was hobbling, he just could use the help. He was grateful, I was too. I was able to get the next door for him as well. It only took me a little out of my way. Then another older gentleman came along with his dog and needed help with the door as well. Okay, great I’ll just hold the door since I’m here. I was about to be relieved of duty when yet another even older man came ambling up the walkway. May as well wait and hold the door for him as well. I eventually made my way past the man with the little dog and as I past him he uttered to me in a delightful voice, “Who says there is no work to be found!” I agreed. To my surprise as I approached my car, my eye caught sight of a very shiny and clean new dime glistening in the sunlight. The dime sat in the same place relative to the door and my position, coming up to the car, as the dime I had found when I was parked at the Dr’s office an hour ago! What are the chances of finding two shiny dimes in one day in the same position to getting into the car. They were both shiny new dimes as if just dropped of by the bank! Both dimes could not be missed due to the sunlight hitting on them. They are small, but somehow seemed like such a big gift..
