easily amazed

A couple of weeks ago we went to Cole Hardware and I bought some pots and potting mix and packets of cherry tomato and chive seeds. Jeremy and Claire planted them and sat them under the kitchen window, and we waited, and waited, and waited. The packet said to wait six days, but by day eight, nothing.

And then! On day nine, shoots! Now every day, slender reeds of chive, translucent leaves of tomatoes! The whole idea was to teach Claire how to nurture plants and that food comes out of the earth, but I’m the one who is amazed. Green life where there was none. Another miracle. Grace.
