I've found quite a few and started reading the year of them. I've noticed since I've done this with the last few that the year became significant in some way.
One was the year one DS was born. I found it in a parking lot on my way home and feeling a bit sad and like home would be lonely. Before I got far, that DS called me and asked me to pick up one of the kids ASAP and stay with until he or DDIL got home. I didn't go home and be alone after all.
There have been a couple of other coincidences like that. I just found another and checked the date. I tried to think of the connection it might have and it is the year my father died. I wonder what he might be telling me?
What's interesting about your post and why I am responding is because I came to "off topic" to post something about how much I miss my dad today. He will be gone 3 years in June. Today I miss him more than I have in a while.
Maybe I need to look for his penny. I sure miss him...
I once found a penny from the year both were born. I guess they were both thinking of me then. Turned out to be during the time xpos must have been doing his meetups with his CL and porn dating sites women. <sigh>
For me, it was dimes from that same Granddad and Grandmom. I found them often when I was going through times of extreme stress (like the long road that brought me here). I would find a dime on the step I'd just gone down moments before where there wasn't any. I haven't found many recently..until this morning.
Today I had a court date with my 1st XH (CS issue, like, he hasn't paid any since 08). While I wasn't really stressing, it was very much on my mind. Lo and behold, after I got out of the shower and was dressing, there was a dime on the bathroom rug. With the date my Granddad passed away. Coincidence? I don't think so..I think it was a message that everything will be fine. And it was.
XWH died Dec. 2010
I have always found coins, mostly pennies, and laughed at what was said they mean when I read that. I saw a psychic one time who told me that I have people *in spirit* who look out for me, especially when driving. I didn't necessarily believe in either thing, but filed the info in the back of my mind. Later I actually started to think about the timing of finding the coins - then started paying attention to the date on each coin. At first, it took a while, but connections started popping into my head. Call it the power of suggestion, but whatever, it seemed like one was there.
I found this one next to my tire when I got out of my car at the mall. I'm leaving soon to drive back home. Dad always looked out for my car needs. Maybe it was a message that he's happy I had my car checked out and a dangerous condition was found and fixed? Maybe something will happen to make some kind of sense. Maybe. Funny, though, that there were more than just me thinking of this today.
I gave you more than I ever got back
You left me here to forget about that
All the things you thought you had have gone
Let that be a lesson to you

I never thought to check the year. He keeps his pennies from heaven in a special jar in his room, I'll have to check.
