Have a Super Saturday

A herd of pregnant male seahorses.
The female seahorse lays the eggs and transfers them into the male seahorses pouch where they are then incubated. Every male seahorse has an incubation pouch in its body. The eggs are fertilized by the male, who also goes through the labour process and it takes 2-3 weeks for the babies to be born.

I love sea horses and found this so interesting

I hope you are going to have a super Saturday

It is going to warm up around our way 
It's a foggy morning and it was raining through the night.

Prayer of St Francis...
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
♥•O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.•♥•Amen.

No matter how much time has passed, these things still affect us and the world we live in. If you don't pay attention to the past, you'll never understand the future. It's all linked together.”

Their beautiful happy smiling faces always bring me so much joy♥

Take my love,
multiply it
by infinity
and take it
to the depths of forever ...
and you will still
have only a glimpse
of how I feel
for you

Beautiful quote as seen on my lovely friends blog

Thanks Deb♥

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. ~Kahlil Gibran

To live a happy life love each other well.

The greatest thing  you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others. ~ Mandy Hale ✫*¨`*✶♪.¸¸.✻ღ♥*✿*•♥ღ✰ (¯`✻´¯) Ahram and Justin you are both sparkling, bubbly and like fine champagne always reason to celebrate `*.¸.*✻ღ♥ღ.¸¸.✫*¨`*✶♪¸.✻ღ
