Penny For Your Thoughts

The ridges of an old penny…marred and bent.

Exposed to hurt.


Oh, the tattered stories it could tell. 


I have known hardship. I have been lost.

I have been found. I have scars.

But here I stand.

Stronger and moving forward.

I value the lessons for I have learned. 

Before we become quick to judge, always take a moment and ruminate on the lives of others. Do not question a struggle you have never weathered.

    • Thanks Oneta. Not sure about the wisdom part but I realize the older I get, the more quiet I am and the more I observe. Listening can be a good teacher.

    • Thanks so much, K! Took this shot with my new iPhone Macro lens. Still learning new things about photography. Looking forward to your future posts! 🙂
