For those who may remember I lost my little cat Tater this year . He was sick most of his short 2 year life and I did everything I could to keep him healthy and happy , but in the end FIP took him. He will always hold a special place to me . He was a tiny , sweet, little black cat … scared of just about everything…even TV’s .
I had a heart attack last August and recently my Cardiologist had me to up my walks to 3 miles a day . I get bored walking a track or treadmill so instead I like to walk through neighborhoods in my city . I alter my walks everyday so I don’t get bored . Almost everyday without fail I have been finding a penny on my walk . I always think of it as a “ Penny from Heaven “ and for some reason have always thought it was sent by Tater . When I find it I always think to myself “Tater is with me and helping me get healthy” . Today as I was walking something really intense happened . I was walking in an area I have only been in a few times and I found a single playing card on my path. It was the Five Of Diamonds . No other cards anywhere . Just that one . Many of you may already know that in Cartomancy ,fortune telling done with standard playing cards , a 5 of Diamonds means prosperity , happiness , good news , and success . I didn’t know until I got home and refreshed my memory with an online search . I continued on the walk and was about 75% finished and hadn’t found my daily penny . Just as I thought to myself “Well I guess Tater isn’t going to send me a penny today…He sent me a 5 of Diamonds “ I looked down and there was a penny . If anyone would have seen me they would have thought I had gone insane because I picked it up and held it in front of me and smiled like I had found a treasure…LOL . I put the penny in my back pocket as I always do and continued walking . After I had walked about 3-4 blocks more for some reason it really hit me and I thought to myself , “ Tater you REALLY are with me aren’t you ? “ . Just as I thought that thought I looked down and found 3 pennies in a triangle shape . As I picked them up I actually cried a bit . A little happy and a little sad. As with the card the number 3 symbolizes reward and success in all your undertakings . If you wonder what I do with all the pennies ( there are over 40 now) I bring them home and put them in a special ceramic coffee mug and it’s story is a fitting oddity as well . One day I was shopping in a thrift store and for some reason I was drawn to a coffee mug that had a hand painted cat on it . The cat has been playing in the mud and left tracks on the kitchen floor . As I inspected the painting closer I noticed that 3 of the tracks show 4 toes and 2 of the tracks only show 3 toes . Tater had a toe amputated due to a tumor so he had a 3 toed foot and had left tracks just like that on my kitchen floor .
