Bitter Laurel

Yeah. That's what my name means.

Not, "pure," or "grace," or "beautiful," or "God is gracious."

Not "wisdom," or "strong," or "peace."

Nothing like that.

Bitter. Laurel.

A bitter tree.

Explains a lot.

must've been 'opposite day' the day you were born! We named Sissy without checking origins or meanings (believe it or not). Turns out her name means peaceful peace. I told her it was prophetic. I don't think yours is though *L*

Sorry... I'm one of those "God is gracious" people, and I made sure my daughter had a name meaning "Loved." But my sister Barbara got the name meaning "stranger or foreigner." I always felt bad for her.

Baby Cakes they meant it like this:
It will be bitter when she flies away.
And she will be as grounded in her love for Christ as a tree.

Ask 'em. I'm sure of it.
