      My children and I planted these sunflowers in their grandparents' garden.  
      I captured this photo one afternoon when my son noticed the butterfly.  
      It is so beautiful to witness how the simple act of planting seeds can grow
       into something bigger like this sunflower field and it sparked 
      so many questions for inquiry.  Almost makes me think of the blog 
      and how far its reach has spread over the years, 
      as well as how I continue to have so many more wonderings!!!

      3. Did you realize there is a 12 word sentence you can communicate to your partner... that will trigger deep emotions of love and impulsive attractiveness for you deep inside his heart?

        Because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, please and look after you with his entire heart...

        12 Words That Fuel A Man's Desire Instinct

        This impulse is so hardwired into a man's mind that it will drive him to try harder than ever before to build your relationship stronger.

        In fact, triggering this influential impulse is so important to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

        ...You'll soon find him expose his soul and mind for you in such a way he never expressed before and he will identify you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly appealed to him.
