Sharon name Rose of Sharon not a curse

For years I hated my name ... Sharon. Growing up in the 60s, this name and Tracy became very common. And in the 80s you got all the Sharon and Tracy jokes. 

Today, I came across this article saying how much this author hated her name Sharon. I love the ending where she quotes: 

My husband’s name, by the way? Andrew Charles: posh enough for the both of us.

If you are a Sharon from the 80s, you will no doubt recall the Sharon and Tracy dancing round the white handbag jokes, with the white high heels. It was awful. How I dreamed of having a different name. Mum said she wanted to call me Claire, and I wished that was my name. 

Last year, I had a conversation with my Mum, which led to her telling me how I got the name Sharon. 
She said, "Your Nan wanted to call you Sharon. And your other Nan agreed, because Sharon was in the Bible ... Rose of Sharon."

I thought, how wonderful that both my grandmothers had a say in naming me. Especially, as they are no longer with us. Now I treasure my name and the memory that goes with it.

Even though I don't practice a religion. I do believe in God. And what God stands for ... Kindness, love and a better world for our friends, families and children! The Rose of Sharon has such a wonderful meaning in the Bible. And offers a glimmer of hope. 

Today, I stumbled onto this amazing song: 

Rose Of Sharon | SAVIOUR - The Story Of God s Passion For His People | Legendado


So to all the Sharon's of the world. It is time to celebrate. Because Sharon is actually a very beautiful name indeed. And it's meaing is something to be very proud of.

The funny thing is, I have so many big dreams. One of them is to encourage families around the world to Save, Share and Trade organic seeds. I kind of suit my name, don't you think.

Here is a little video I made about growing a Soapnut tree from seed. I managed to grow one without having to using sandpaper or a hammer on the seed. My friends asked me to make this video, as they were very impressed, as was I. Especially, as I managed to destroy all my tomato plants this year, lol!

If you want to help Save, Share and Trade ORGANIC Seeds. Do leave me a comment on our little gardening group, if you would like to help:

Wherever there is a negative, you can always find a positive!
