Pennies from Heaven

As T & I were getting our receipt checked at the exit of Sam's Club today, we noticed a penny on the ground, under a shopping cart the worker was leaning on. I mentioned it, and T easily crawled under the cart and picked it up. Instead of immediately putting it into his pocket, he started to hand it to the Sam's Club worker. He was so surprised that a child would not claim it as his own, but rather give it to it's "rightful" owner. I was proud, too. The worker told T he could keep it and T just smiled and jumped in delight. Then he carefully slipped it into his pocket to bring home. I was reminded of T's sweet spirit and awareness of others, and I got a little taste of Heaven today with his act of kindness.
