Yesterday as I was running errands, I found two dimes in two separate locations. I didn’t think much of the first one. I was in a store where people could easily drop change. The second, I thought, it may be a dime from heaven. But, again, I was in a store where people could easily drop change.
Last Spring, after seven years of marriage and renting an apartment, my husband and I finally bought our first home, a condo. My office allows employees to take leftover boxes from deliveries before they are thrown out.

After a particularly stressful day from work I saw three encouraging signs on my way home.
