Opuntia ficus-india.

Or Sabra–pronounced here in America say-bruh.  My name comes from the Hebrew word for the cactus flower or prickly pear… cactus in bloom. Get it? “The allusion is to a tenacious, thorny desert plant with a thick hide that conceals a sweet, softer interior, i.e., tough on the outside, sweet and tender on the inside” (thanks Wikipedia).

Does that describe me? Weeell, I certainly hope I’m not thorny with a thick hide! Haha. Actually, my name has a bit more meaning for me.

Two great-great-grandmothers and my maternal grandmother also bear the name Sabra. I cherish their legacy they have left for me to follow and try to live my life happily and honestly. Family, teaching, music, and the beauties of the world make me go round.
