Lilac/Flowers [Nurture Photography]


I took a lovely stroll and happened on a beautiful assortment of wildflowers.

Others were not much to look at.  photo IMG_4514edit900pxds_zps749f9382.jpg But upon closer inspection I saw something special in these little petals and buds. I was reminded that  "Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it." -Confucius  photo beautyedit900pxds_zpsc03685e6.jpg I hope that the next time you venture out with camera in hand you will give the often forgotten and less than desired a second glance.

Just a few months Back, I was in search of a loan of $75,000.00 as I was running out of money for my business and i could not pay my bills anymore. I was scammed $8,500 and I decided not to get involve in such business again I never knew that a real lender like ( Rathan Charod Company ) still exist on internet and on earth here. until a Friend of mine introduced me to ( rathancharodloancompany@gmail.com ) due to my appearance and doings. At first I told him I was not interested in any loan deal anymore then he assure me that ( Mr Rathan Charod ) is a genuine lender, though i never believed him, I made a trial and I am glad i did, I was given a loan amount of $75,000.00, by this Company ( Rathan Charod Loan Company ) managed by (Mr Rathan Charod) If you are in need of a genuine, legit loan or any financial assistance and you can be reliable, trusted and capable of paying back at the due time of the funds I will advice you to contact:( rathancharodloancompany@gmail.com ) and you be free from scams on the internet. All thanks to Mr Rathan Charod Loan Company for restoring life unto my business

  28. I'm Linda from Texas. My husband left me for no reason. he moved in with another woman, when we have few days left for our wedding. I felt like killing myself. I've tried different spell casters and went to different temples to pray but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about DR. IFA OLUKO and that she is very good and does not even charge a lot for her services. she said she helped her get her job back and on her marital affairs. I didn't believe it because I've worked with many of them and it didn't work. she begged me further, so I decided to try out DR. IFA OLUKO. I contacted her, and I gave her the necessary information. I still didn't believe, but I still went ahead and purchased her love spell, and the next day I received a call and it was my darling husband, Fred. he apologized and came back to me. he even gave me some money as a means of compensating me and for the preparation of our wedding. I'm now a very a happy woman. Thank you DR. IFA OLUKO, I will forever be grateful to you. she can solve any problem. Try her today and you won't remain the same again, and thank me later. You can contact her via the email dr.ifaolukun@gmail.com, or visit the website: http://homeofourgreatmother.gnbo.com.ng/
