He hopped to it when I asked

Today seems as though it is right full of treasures! The sun is shining, it is 79 degrees, there is a wonderful breeze, and the air is dry. I could easily find a hundred or more treasures to share. Two treasures, however, stand out to me this morning. One is very tiny and the other very tall.

The first is a tiny little frog I saw as I was walking out to my garden this morning. His body was approximately one inch in length. He didn't want to be picked up and held but that, of course, did not stop me. He was a cute little guy, small and quick - he hopped away when I tried to show him to my husband. I enjoy frogs, toads, bugs, snakes, etc. I have never been able to understand why everyone doesn't. (I must note here that I do not enjoy all of them ON me. Spiders are interesting to LOOK at but I really don't want one crawling around in my hair!) Most have interesting color patterns and even cute little faces - have you ever looked at the face of an inch worm for instance? I challenge you to find one and look at it's face. They have tiny red lips that form an "O" and then they appear to smile. -- Seriously cute. -- Back to my frog friend, it really amazed me to watch him. Without hardly any effort he was able to hop a good foot in length, and when scared of me (oh, dear!) he hopped nearly twice as far. In my rough estimation, this would be like me jumping about 10 - 20 feet! Frogs are amazing.

My second treasure is a tall one. It stands about 6 foot three or so. It is my son, Ken. I needed some muscle power in the garden this morning and he was there with a cheerful attitude to help me. - Thank you, Ken!! (My oldest son, Alex, is indeed a treasure, too!- I'm a blessed Momma!)

Have a wonderful day, enjoy the treasures God has in store for you.
