Found a Penny Today

My late husband and founder of Burns Mailing & Printing, Ken Burns, loved to walk and find money that folks had thrown away.  The most he found was $20.00 along side the road and the least of course was a penny. Some people won’t pick up a penny but Ken and I had known days when we did not have a penny so nothing was too small to pick up. Now when my daughter and I see a penny and pick it up, we think of Ken.  I was cleaning out some old files today and there was a penny in one of the folders. It reminded me of Ken and his walks everyday and how proud he was when he came home with a hand full of change. If you have never been without, it seems a small thing but should remind us that we should take care of even a penny.  They add up and you never know when you might need one.
