Coins Currency Money Cash Quarter Penny Us

A homeless man visited my store today.
The few quarters that he had in his pocket
he invested on books.  I offered him free books,
but he insisted on giving me his quarters.
He walked away filled with joy
as if he possessed the world’s riches in his hands.
In a way, he did.
He left me smiling and knowing that he was
wealthier than many others.

  2. What a lovely way of putting it. I feel the same way. I’m always picking them up and touching them. LOL My life is filled with them. Yay!
