I have become a gardener. Well, as much as possible living in a condo. And the funny thing is, I never enjoyed it before. I hate getting dirt under my nails, I don't like to sweat. And I am terrified of snakes. 

But there is just something about watching those tomato and jalapeño pepper plants grow that warms my heart. I got so excited tonight when I went out on my patio and I saw this: 


Tiny little pepper! 

Tiny little pepper! 

I actually bounced up and down. Bouncing is not a new thing with me. I frequently bounce for the following reasons: 1) I am getting ready to eat chocolate; 2) I spend time with someone I enjoy; and 3) I see the wonder of God's creation.

Today I got to see that wonder. I am grateful and I am blessed!
