Signs: Can you spare a dime?

As told to me by my friend Amy:
"On the 4th of July I saw my cousin who I hadn't seen in while. Her dad, my uncle died last year. Now there's something you need to know about my uncle. He was obsessed with money. He was always picking up spare change. My cousin said in the year after he died, she finds dimes everywhere. Not pennies (those would've been insignificant for him) and not nickels or quarters. She has a jar where she keeps them all. I came into work, and I found this random dime on my office floor. Could be nothing... but it was weird."

Not one hour after Amy told me this story, I found a single dime in my sweater pocket. Now I bet after reading this - you'll find dimes too. Is it a 'sign'? Who knows. If it stops and makes you remember someone - isn't that all that matters anyway?

Let me see if I too find a one- or two-rupee coin :)

I saw the title of this and then I read the first sentence and I just couldn't resist commenting since it's almost the fourth of July now.

I've been focusing my attention on how to bring more money into my life lately. I was reading something about money earlier tonight as a matter of fact. I won't be surprised if I start seeing dimes. Quarters would be cool, too. But dimes would be a synchronicity.:-)
