Remember the song that states that no one promised you a rose garden?
I once had a person say to me that no one promised you a rose garden. My response was, “then why did I get to be a Mary Rose Gardner?” He looked at me like I’d lost my mind and went on his way and I had a little laugh to myself. You see, he had no idea that Rose really was my middle name.
I wasn’t born Mary Rose Gardner, so this wasn’t a cuties name my parents gave me. I didn’t become a Mary Rose Gardner until I married.
