I was watching Psych last night — if you follow me, you know how much I love the show.
Anyways, it was the episode where Shawn’s (fake-psychic main character) uncle Jack rolled into town. He came with the mission to find a buried treasure. But that’s beside the point of this article…
Uncle Jack is known for leaving pennies behind, everywhere he goes. It’s his calling card. Anybody that knows him, knows exactly when Jack was there.
In the show, you (the viewer) find out why Jack does it.
“Pennies are good luck, and the world could use more good luck.”
I really appreciate the idea of that! When I find a penny on the ground, it has a way of brightening my day — even if just a little. Leaving pennies around is a simple way of helping others experience that little lift in their day.
So, start leaving pennies around! I know I will.
Until next time,
