A Million Dollar Smile

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The other week I had a grand time chasing a yellow butterfly! I found it happily resting on a yellow flower....being the nature devotee that I am I spent time playing with it as it surprisingly cooperated with my cam!

I held the little flower with the butterfly (which could easily be planted again) up in the air in contrast against the blue sky wondering if the beautiful wings would take the chance to escape my intrusion but goodness gracious it stayed and further amused me.

I then slowly put the flower on the ground in between leaves of weeds watching the rising sun....it stayed on....

and like a faithful lover it did not dare look for another flower....

not even when one of our dogs was lurking around to bark it away from the ground...
     As I spend time viewing this shots again, saving them on the web and searching for flower growth enhancers...my browser takes me to a site that features a different kind of store- Dollar General in California which is convenient and affordable; they carry many deals but also name brands at reasonable prices including everything from A-Z! food, clothing, household items, health and beauty, pet items, gifts, home decor, gardening gadgets, over the counter medications, air fresheners, cell phones...you could actually just name it and they do have it amazingly! I love the planting products as I would love to have more flowers to attract more butterflies. They are opening stores in many parts of California where my mom and my TSS sisters Betchai and Chay are. How delighted I was to know that there is a Dollar General very close to Chay.
The address is: 9860 Central Ave, Montclair, CA 91763. I will sure mention Dollar General to them over Skype and Facebook as some locations will have a Dollar General Market where one could do grocery shopping affordably. What more- they are committed to serving the community and have a Dollar General Literacy foundation which is an integral part of the company's culture. They believe that education leads to personal and eventually economic growth...a gift of a lifetime that they are unselfishly sharing.
Do sign up for Dollar general alerts at Dollar General Facebook to get advantageous e-mail and text alerts on promos and store updates. I will do that for mom. In the meantime I spend the rest of my work free hours saving flower photos on the web...
The beauty that is found freely in nature never fails to give us that million dollar smile that conquers the weariest of souls...
