Lupie Love!!!

Hello friends. My name is Nicki and I'm Tiffany's sister and I have been given the privilege of being a guest blogger here on the site. I've been thinking about the struggles that you guys have to face daily. The friends that you have to lose and the family as well. So this blog was written just as a word on encouragement to all of you. Get a lupie love plant!!!

This plant made me think of all my lupies, especially the "mostest speciallist" one Tiffany "Spanish" Batista!!! I'm hoping to start a HUGE movement of lupie love plants all over to remind you of your worth, dignity and contribution to life!!! My life has been touched by a lupie in an in-exchangeable way. And all of you are responsible in some form or shape, for the world that I live in being a better place!!! LET'S SPREAD LUPIE LOVE!!!!

"The name 'Lupine' derives from the Latin word 'lupus' (meaning wolf), because the plants were once thought to deplete (or wolf) soil nutrients. The peas, which appear after the flowering period were also said to be fit only for the consumption of wolves. The yellow legume seeds of lupins, commonly called lupin beans, were popular with the Romans . Lupin beans are commonly sold in a salty solution in jars (like olives and pickles) and can be eaten with or without the skin. Lupins are also cultivated as forage and grain legumes. "

There will be people all over who will not understand your disease. Some will be close, as close as flesh and blood. Some will be perfect strangers. When it comes down to it, we're all affected by each other and the pain that others will inflict on you because of their misunderstanding says NOTHING AT ALL about the value that you have to more people than you know.
"Like most members of their family, lupins can fix nitrogen from the atmosphere into ammonia via a rhizobium-root nodule symbiosis, fertilizing the soil for other plants, this adaption allows lupins to be tolerant of infertile soils and capable of pioneering change in barren and poor quality soils. So it was found that they actually INCREASE soil fertility!!!"

You touch lives everyday. There will be times that you will want to quit, there will be times when you will get tired and frustrated and tired of trying to explain yourself to others. Have a lupie love plant as a visual reminder to keep pushing because you give life!!

I love you guys,
Nicole "Spanish" Batista
