The coin came from my wife who gave it to our granddaughter. She never used it and gave it to me.

I met a lady today in her 70’s who is still working and does not expect to be able to retire. She washes, dries, and folds people’s clothing. She was very helpful so I struck up a conversation with her.

We talked about our children and grandchildren and she told me how she had raised several of her grandchildren. One in particular was very difficult but has become a wonderful person and mother. Anyway when I left I handed her $50 and the coin, hoping to brighten her day. She seemed very surprised and touched.
