Buffalo Penny

What year was on the penny I found– 1967.

Geesh, I had to think about that year and what I could remember about it. I was only maybe five years old. My sister, Jeanne was four years older than me.

One day, Jeanne walked out the front door and walked up the long gravel road by herself. I stood there and watched her disappear out of sight. Tears filled my eyes. I asked Mom where was Jeanne going? Tears ran down my cheeks. I didn’t understand what was going on. Was my sister going to be okay?

Mom wrapped her arms around me and wiped my tears. She informed me that Jeanne had gone to school. Mom promised me that Jeanne would return later in the afternoon. True to her word, Jeanne came back home. I was never so glad to see my sister!

I have always felt that Jeanne has been my protector when we were younger, especially when it came to getting spankings from Dad.

May your day be filled with many blessings!
