There's this stupid rosebush in my backyard that I have been trying to kill pretty much since I moved in. It's not really on purpose, it's just that I have problem keeping things that flower alive and this rose bush is in the most inconvenient place ever. My dad has cut it down, mowed it down, and it still comes back bigger and better than ever. And because of that, I love it. Persistence earns bonus points in my book.
And all I can think as I write this is that the stupid rose bush and I have a lot in common. And all I can hope is that my Gardener rewards persistence, too. Because some days I don't have much else going for me.
