Grace-full living day 2: THOUGHTFUL.


2. Save your pennies… and give them away.

I kept a coin jar for  years.  I collected pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. I was saving them for a rainy day.  I fantasized about what fun extravagance I would indulge in.  I marveled at how heavy a jar of coins was and wondered how many hundreds of dollars were in there. I identified coin machines at the local grocery stores where I could exchange the metal for bills.

There were several times I thought about cashing in, but never quite got around to it.

One day it became clear what I had been saving it for.  A dear friend needed it more than I did.  I was delighted to drop the heavy jar off on her front porch and drive away. I would have loved for it to be anonymous, but she knew it was from me.  I never knew how much was in there or what she did with it.

She was very appreciative, but I GOT THE GREATER GIFT.

I have a new coin jar going now.  I’m working on filling it up, and I look forward to giving it away!

Got coin?
