WP Prompt: Where did your name come from?
I am named after my Mom’s
They had a falling out over 40 years ago and at that point
my Mom stopped calling me Anita.
I have been Marie to my Mom and most of my family since then. I answer to both
Anita, Marie or Anita Marie. It’s all the same to me.
Besides, I have seen enough gravestones in my life to know that a name
is only a tag and it’s not what people call you that matters. Its how they
sound when they do it.
I have also learned that naming your kids after your friends isn’t the best idea you
could ever have.
