"The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud, the deeper and thicker the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms."
I absolutely love that! How true! Our troubles make us so much stronger. I have always said that adversity is a blessing. Without it, how do we find out how strong we really are? How do we appreciate the good times. Adversity makes us better people.
Have a Great Day!
