Someone asked me why I have a penny in my shoe. I was told that it may bring prosperity.
One of the women who told me this has a very nice home with lovely art on the walls. It appeared to have worked for her. This doesn’t seem too difficult to do, I thought, I can do this. Now I have a tiny metal reminder clinking around my left toe, or sometimes it works its way down towards the side of my arch.
Sometimes I might fish around the bottom of my purse, find a penny and force unsuspecting friends to sneak one into their shoes.
Why not get all the help you can get?
Has it worked you may ask? Are you wealthy yet? I have to tell you – it is beginning to work.
Each time I grow weary of some endeavor or another the tiny tapping of the coin reminds me to keep at it. Finish this job and on to the next, because money is important. And I know those of you who have money, may interject, “No no! It is not important at all” But I believe it is important. We must have money to buy food to eat, we must pay the mortgage. That little piece of metal is my daily reminder to keep moving forward, keep learning new things.
“Keep at it,” says that bit of copper rubbing my skin.
There is a lot of interesting history on those clunky looking penny loafer shoes. They were made to store a penny in a little pocket on the top. This money was so that teenagers would be able to call their parents from a phone booth! How quaint. First, it was a penny, then it was meant to hold a dime. Now, kids shoes would have a little opening for their expensive thousand dollar cell phones, the shoes could be called grand loafers. Inflation is tough.
