The house was a dream for 30 years. After numerous failed attempts, I gave up.
That's when the Penny Angels and a Higher Source took over. For over 3 years during the construction the Angels provided a penny EVERY day non stop. (See Penny Tales Blog). Their way of saying "Just Take it One Day at a Time and Keep Trusting!"
The Penny Palace now stands as a symbol of miracles and love.
The Construction Phase has been completed, but the "COINcidences" and Tales from the Palace continue...

Today was the final session to take
our belongings out of the cabin.My
heart was heavy.I had written a
heart-felt letter ten days ago to the new owner asking him which things he
wanted and if we could perhaps meet with him, tell him some of the “stories”
about the place and share with him the special Memory Album.He never responded.
We arrived at the cabin at 11 a.m.
and packed up a first load which we transported to the Mountain Thrift
store.We took more than I originally
planned because if the new owner was going to be rude and ignore me, then I was
not going to be overly generous with him.
My plans were to be driving away
from the cabin by 3 p.m.Doc and I were
packing and loading to meet that deadline.Approximately 2:58 p.m. a guy pulled up in front of the house and asked
if Doc was the plumber there to fix things!I went out to drag Doc back inside when this stranger informed us that
HE was the new buyer!!!!!He was driving
from Lancaster back to Palm Springs where he was staying, but he was “nudged”
to drive past the cabin.That would be
one heck of a detour!Was that
I asked J.B. how he had planned to
get inside the house.He said he was
merely going to drive past. So of
course we invited him in.(So much for
that 3 p.m. deadline).I spent probably
45 minutes with him showing him everything from the blueprints of the house to
the owner’s manuals, lockbox, controls, cuckoo clock, and of course, the
precious Memory Album and Visitor’s Log.
Doc and New Owner J.B.
I finally asked J.B. why he had
never responded to my letter?He said he
never saw it.That time together was
really nice.My hurt was healed and
there were hugs exchanged before J.B. left.He promised he would take good care of the place.
Remember the COINcidence on
November 25th about the cuckoo clock?It gets even better.My father had hung the clock on the wall when
he visited.Since I did not know how to
operate the weights, I had never heard the clock chime.When I took down the clock to dust it and get
it ready for Neighbor Debbie, it chimed for me!And the little carved figure came out of the doorway.Special JOY moment and tears streaming.
