“‘Legacy Of A Rose’. Life Growth Through Adversity”

On the Race Track of Life, Mother Rose drops her Petals. As each petal goes on their own journey, all experience the Thorns (or Adversities) of Life. With each cut, most learn or grow as they keep on their voyage and fill with a richer, fuller life. In ancient Egypt, the color red was associated with life, health, and victory. As each petal goes on their journey, they start to form their own rose. Notice that the thorns get thicker, but some petals don’t learn from the thorns. They don’t grow and turn cold gray. They just think they have bad luck or the world isn’t fair. The goal at the end of the earthly journey, is to be a beautiful Rose for our eternal journey.
