Angels among us.

Once upon a time, a long long time ago, lived a little blonde girl who grew up in a little house in the middle of a fig orchard in the middle of nowhere. One night, the little girl came home to her recently (self) cleaned bedroom, and went to her dresser, (which she'd recently organized, because even then, she had a touch of OCD) and discovered the top drawer was slightly ajar and tucked into the drawer and hanging slightly out, was a necklace. On the necklace hung a cross and in the center was a single stone (rhinestone? diamond? cz? who knows, but it was little and in the middle- and yes, that rhymes). The necklace appeared a bit tarnished but was pretty and the little girl liked it. She ran to thank her mom, and her mom asked where the little girl had found the necklace. When the girl explained, the mom looked skeptical, and promised she had not left it there and also swore she'd never seen it before. The girl's dad told the same story and looked equally incredulous. The girl never did find out where the necklace came from, but she wore it for many years.

Later, the girl was a "grown up" and went to grab a few things in her garage. As she picked up her son's back pack, she looked on the ground below it at something shiny. It was a gold coin and it had an angel on either side of it. There was no writing on the coin and it was the same size and weight as a quarter. She'd never seen a coin like this before, nor had anyone in the house when questioned. But, she thinks she'll hold onto it. She is me. And I found the coin last weekend.

  5. I carry a coin just like that. It is from a friend who has passed away. She received it in a religious mailing she received.

  6. I found this coin today while moving a sofa that had already been moved many times throughout the house and from one home address to another. I have never seen one like it and neither have any of my family when questioned. I have no idea where it came from, but I am definitely going to treasure it!
