This morning Doc stopped at the new Starbucks on the way to school . He ordered his drink and then I hopped out to walk a few steps. There was a penny in the planter. Doc got his coffee while I got a nickel. Doc pointed to another penny which I hadn’t seen, then I spied a dime under the rear tire of the van. (Coins #1-4).
When running to my first class, there was a penny at the vending machines. Then, when leaving work there was a penny again at the vending machines. (Coins #5&6)
On the way home from work Doc stopped to fuel the van. I went into the convenience store. I searched the whole store and didn’t find any coins. There was one customer at the register and taking a long time there. I was trying to see past her underneath the counter, but she kept blocking my view. I was about to give up waiting. (It is a bit awkward to loiter in the store). She finally moved, a penny was revealed, and I claimed it. I had to explain myself to the cashier (since I was picking up the penny almost at his feet), but it was fun to give him a card and SHARE the story with him.
Lesson: Rewards for those who are patient.
When Doc finished pumping the fuel he looked at the pay phone area. There were two pennies on the shelf of the phone. God’s 2¢ worth for Doc today.
