“Pennies from Heaven” - I found a penny today, just lying on the ground. But it’s not just a penny this little coin I found. Found pennies come from heaven, angles toss them 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, know that penny comes from heaven and your Mom/Nana tossed one down to you.
