When I checked my Facebook page this morning, this memory from last year came up. Everyone I share this story with gets goosebumps when they hear it. So, I’m sharing it again today. It’s beautiful. Only angels can send these signs…

Pennies From Heaven:) A True Story About An Angel

22

FEB

If you don’t believe in angels

I’m here to say it’s true

There are angels up in heaven

They’re watching over you,

So, I asked my angel mother

I whispered in her ear

When you get up there in heaven

Please show us you are near.

If only you could send a sign

As only angels can

We will know you’re safe in heaven

And that you have a plan.

To watch and guard us every day

You’ll guide us from above

So, you left two lucky pennies

Beneath your painting, signed with love.

This is a true story of faith and love and angels. As my sweet mother grew weaker and less alert, my sister and I would talk to her and sing to her. I prayed the rosary out loud to comfort Mom during her final days. One of the last things I whispered in her ear was, “Please Mom, when you get up to heaven, could you show us a sign that you’re OK, that there really is a heaven? I know if anyone could do it, you could. I know you’ll always be my guardian angel.”

We’ve done a lot of crying since Mom passed away last week, but today, the crying was a celebration. Mom left us a sign. Those of you who know me, you already know that I believe in lucky pennies. They always appear out of nowhere when I need them most. I always look up to heaven and say, “Thank you.”

This afternoon, my sister and I went out for some lunch. We’ve spent days and days sorting and reminiscing and making arrangements and crying, It’s been a whirlwind, so it was good to get out of the house for a little while. My sister said, “Let’s go to the library so I can vote. They have early voting, and we can return Mom’s audio-books.”

Well, early voting hadn’t started yet, so we just returned the books and got a bit teary-eyed, because Mom loved the library and all the people. She had donated her very large “Cinco de Mayo” painting to the library several years ago. It takes up an entire wall on the second floor. When I asked my sister if she needed any books or videos while we were there, she said, “Not really, let’s just go home.” Then I said, “Should we go upstairs and see Mom’s mural before we go?” Of course, we needed to do that.

The elevator opened and we walked ever so slowly towards the mural.

There on the bench, right beneath her painting, were two lucky pennies from heaven. We both burst into tears as I blurted out, “Here’s our sign. I asked Mom to send us a sign. Here it is! Two pennies, not just one. What are the chances that they would be here waiting for us today, right beneath her painting?”

I hadn’t told my sister the story about asking Mom to send us a sign right before she passed away, until that moment. If she didn’t believe in angels before, I’m pretty sure she does now. We both knew Mom was an angel here on earth, but now, we both know that she’s up in heaven. She gave us a sign.

Thanks Mom.

What does “Pennies from Heaven” mean?

You might have come across this phrase “pennies from heaven?” It’s meaning is not as simple as it sounds. Thinking about it just means pennies being tossed down from the heaven, which has no significant meaning. But, let me enlighten you about the true meaning of this phrase. Pennies from heaven indicate the occasion when angels miss you and therefore, toss down a penny from the heaven that you receive. That penny signifies the fact that some angel in heaven is missing you and therefore wants to communicate with you.

Spiritual meaning of finding pennies

We all are aware of the fact that numbers are attached with a significant spiritual meaning but, have you ever wondered that pennies might have spiritual meaning attached to them too? If not, you will know soon.

The spiritual meaning of finding pennies from heaven is that there is more to this world than what meets the eye. It is a sign from the Heaven and our loved ones who have passed away. The sign indicates that there is magic in the world we live in, and those that have passed away are watching over us in a spiritual way; it’s their way of showing love and reminding you that they still are a part of your life.

Theme Song Thursday:) Angel On My Shoulder, Penny In My Pocket

“It’s amazing what miracles and little angels and pure love around you can bring out.”

Sunday morning, I woke up with the 7am alarm. It’s always a tough wake up when you don’t go to bed till 1 or 2, and you don’t always fall asleep right away. But, I bounced up, looking forward to my Sunday morning greeting before Mass, and it was cold, so I was going to wear my silly sock monkey hat.

I wasn’t even a bit groggy when I grabbed my tooth brush and looked down in the doorway of the bathroom. There was a shiny penny right there on the tile floor. I know for a fact that it wasn’t there when I went to bed, and it wasn’t there the two times I got up during the night to go to the bathroom. I know it wasn’t! I’m very observant. But there it was at 7 am. Where did it come from?

I did that “Twilight Zone” theme Song in my head, and picked it up. I looked at the penny and noticed the back was different. It was Abe Lincoln sitting there reading a book. I’d never seen one of those pennies before. It felt a little spooky at first, then I smiled and said, “Just another penny from heaven. Thanks Mom.” It was shiny and new and different. I took that as a sign from my angel that a bright shiny new future was ahead. Yep, that’s what angels do. They’re heavenly forecasters.

Since then, I have found two more pennies on my walks and a dime just a little while ago.

Theme Song Thursday:) Pennies From Heaven

Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth.

I keep finding pennies from Heaven. While I was going through Mom’s many craft bins and drawers yesterday, there at the very bottom of the last drawer, I found a single solitary tiny ziplock bag with a lone penny. I smiled. My reward for a long day of sorting.

Gotta love Frank Sinatra….

This afternoon, my sister asked me to go to the car wash with her. We drove through and parked afterwards to readjust the side mirrors and wipe the excess water. As I stepped out of the car, yep, a penny right at my feet.

I think one lucky penny from heaven is worth a dozen dirty dollars from…. well, wherever dirty dollars come from. I am blessed.

I’ll keep all my lucky pennies from Mom in heaven in a special jar when I get home.

Tuesday:) Two More Pennies and a Butterfly

******************

Well, you’re probably tired of hearing about my pennies from Heaven and other such things, but for those who can relate and believe, they’re pretty interesting stories.

After I got back home, back to reality, it was time to unpack, go through the stack of mail, check bills and do some laundry. I only had a small carry on bag that only had photos, cd’s, some paperwork, my iPad and my pills, etc.

I opened up the washer to throw in some dirty clothes, reached up on the shelf for the detergent, and there it was, a lucky Penney. I just smiled.

Then, I emptied out the small blue bag, that I borrowed from Mom’s house on my last trip, and there in the tiny side pocket was … a lucky Penney. I smiled.

I had read on a friend’s Facebook post about cardinals being signs from heaven. I thought that was pretty cool. I hadn’t seen any cardinals in a while. But, when I went for my walk yesterday, there were two cardinals in the tree in my front yard. One male, one female. I smiled. I ran in to get my phone to take a picture, but they’d flown off.

Then, the grand finale was, near the end of my walk, a little white butterfly let me say hello and take her picture. Then, she flew past my face and hands. I waved and said hello…and smiled.
