This was my avatar before I changed it to the one I have now. The one I have now was taken Dec 2017 at my son's Christmas wedding. Both my husband and I walked away from the Watchtower at the same time in 2001, thus the number after my username. We left before the Watchtower was able to damage my own children. Now to the rose, back when I first became a member on this forum, I went by the name Irish Rose. I picked that name because of part of my stubborn Irish heritage, and I mean that in a good way. Stubborn to my personal values. I only changed my account information because when I moved to a different location, I lost all my old login information.
