Instead of Roses my Beautiful Bennie, I bought you a Rose bush for your birthday. Why a bush? Because you deserve continual flowers for all of the love you offer the world daily. A Rose is just a Rose, lasting but a few days after they bloom. Then, just as suddenly as they blossomed, they shrivel up and wilt. With a Rose bush you get fresh buds and blooms, beautiful petals soaking up the days’ rays and ever green stems armed with thorns. Every part of the bush is in a different stage of growth or decay. Ever renewing and regenerating is the Rose bush just as your love is.
So, when you look upon this bush just know that its beauty I liken to the beauty you possess inside and out, everlasting and true. The Rascoe Family celebrates this day, July 25th because it is the day that the love of our lives was birthed and the world gained another angel. You, like the Rose, stand out and above all of the other flowers with your sweet fragrance and velvet touch. Your scent is hypnotically intoxicating to me leaving your husband drunk on your love. I’m a lush for all that is you. Happy Birthday Beautiful Bennie Rascoe and may this Rose bush continue to grow more beautiful with each passing year just as you do. Majestic magnificent maturation, Mrs. Rascoe our Rose bush of Love.
