Seeds of Love
By Beth Beutler
1 "Wow! What a price!" my mom said as we checked out of the discount store.
2 "Please go back and grab as many seed packets as you can," she instructed.
3 I turned around and went toward the back of the store. There was a display there with all sorts of seed packets--seeds for flowers and vegetables. I wasn't sure what mom wanted, but I started grabbing handfuls until I couldn't hold any more.
4 I ran back to the cash register and dumped them onto the counter.
5 "How's this?" I asked.
6 "That's great!" Mom answered.
7 "What do you need all these seed packets for, anyway?"
8 "Just a second," Mom answered.
9 "That will be $3.00," said the cashier.
10 I stared in disbelief. Only $3.00 for all that? There must have been over 100 seed packets in that pile. There were seeds for beets and marigolds, lettuce and snapdragons, tomatoes and alyssum and more!
11 As we walked out the door to the car, I asked mom how much each packet was.
12 "Well, honey, I got 150 packets and paid $3.00. How much is that?"
