Pennies from Heaven
I found a penny today
Just laying on the ground.
But it’s not just a penny
This little coin I’ve found.
Found pennies come from heaven
that’s what my Grandpa told me.
He said Angels tossed them down
Oh, how I loved that story!
He said when an Angel misses you
They toss a penny down,
sometimes just to cheer you up
To make a smile out of your frown.
So don’t pass by that penny
When you’re feeling blue.
It may be a penny from heaven
That an Angel’s tossed to you.

Did you know?
Did you know that May 23 each year is Lucky Penny Day? I don’t believe in luck, but people will say if you pick up a penny on heads you will have good luck. I pick up any penny I see on the ground. Heads or tails. I even do that to other change too. For example, quarters, dimes and nickles too.
January 12 is Lost Penny Day!
Pennies use to be made from copper.
Do you pick up pennies or other change you see on the street, ground, etc.?
