Pennies AND Twenties From Heaven!

If you haven't read my post "Pennies From Heaven" you can read it HERE. This one won't make much sense if you haven't read that one.

I am currently training for the Ragnar Relay Race in June and so I have been trying to squeeze in my running when I can. Today I had a nail appointment and so I decided to run to it and home. As I was walking out of the salon onto the sidewalks of our town's Main Street to continue my run home, I was doing my usual looking for pennies that I always do. I thought I had a pretty good chance of finding at least one coin in that area. The last couple of weeks, I thought I would find a lot more than normal mainly because I have been getting in some long runs (10 milers) and thought my odds would go up covering so much more ground. But it didn't seem to be. I found a few, but not what I had hoped. I just figured Tyson must be pretty busy with much more important things to do right now.

As I started walking down the sidewalk, I hadn't taken more than 20 steps when I looked down and saw THIS ↓

Yep, a TWENTY DOLLAR BILL!!! I immediately picked it up and started to look around for someone who may have dropped it. There wasn't a soul in sight. I stood there waiting for a while in case someone came back to look for it, but no one did and so I put it in my pocket with a huge smile on my face as I uttered the words, "Thanks Tyson. Guess this is your way of making up for the drought the last couple of weeks. Good move buddy!"

Pennies AND TWENTIES from heaven now?

Oh dear, I am afraid my expectations have just gone way up!

SIDENOTE: My brother-in-law called a few hours after I posted this. He said HE just found a 20 dollar bill in Albertson's by the Chinese food section laying on the floor. Chinese just happened to be Tyson's favorite food. I totally did NOT believe him at first....what are the odds? But it's true! How crazy is that? Heaven is obviously not having a recession right now!!! ☺
