For me, pennies hold the highest value.
That wasn't always the case though. I'd pass a penny & maybe pick it up if it was heads up. But, more often than not, I'd leave pennies laying on the ground for the next person.
It wasn't until over 3 years ago that pennies would become such a strong part of my life. The day my cousin Christopher passed away, was the first day time I found a penny from heaven. It was sitting on the wheel of my car. I remember seeing it out of the corner of my eye & being shocked. I took it, held onto it and continued with my day.
But then pennies just started coming from everywhere. I was finding them in crazy places & some days they would just appear. My family too, started experiencing pennies everywhere; always heads up and always placed in the strangest places.
It was my Aunt Carol though, Christopher's mom, who always told us that Christopher, the jokester, would leave her tails up pennies instead of heads up ones like the rest of us. She always thought that was so funny.
When my Aunt Carol passed away about 2 years ago, I started finding tails up pennies in strange places. Then I began finding one tails up & one heads up together; always one & one.
It's become a thing in my family. Pennies have become to represent both Christopher & Aunt Carol. I personally don't find them daily and I never find them when I'm looking for one. I find them when I need a smile, or when I just need a bit comfort. They just appear in those moments. They appear too when we're doing something fun because both Christopher & Aunt Carol loved experiencing life and making memories.
Pennies has become a reminder for my family of both of them & that they're always with us. They do say, when you pick up a penny, that means somebody from heaven is thinking of you. How special is it that we have found countless pennies over the years?
About a year ago, one of my other best friends Dana, sent me a package out of the blue. When I opened it, I cried. She had found this beautiful Pennies from Heaven jar so I could keep all my pennies in one place. It is one of the most meaningful & special gifts I have ever received. I unfortunately misplaced some of my pennies from over the year, but now I can keep them all in one place. I love looking at it filled with pennies & a pile of reminders of Christopher & Aunt Carol.
That package inspired me to make my own Pennies from Heaven jars, because I know we aren't the only people who find pennies to be priceless. This has become such a special product for me to create because I know I'm creating something so special for the person receiving it. I can relate to them & what it means to find a penny when you need it. It has become something meaningful & it's a product I absolutely love being able to create!
