The lotus flower, which is known for its phenomenal beauty, ironically, needs the thick mud and murk at the bottom of a lotus pond before it can rise unsoiled – cleaned by the dirty water in which it lives – start to open its petals (one-by-one), and bloom in the sun.
Families are forever, and there aren’t any legal divorces that will ever change that fact. Furthermore, as an unknown author says in the following quotation: “Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal; love leaves a memory that no one can steal.” I will always remember you, Mr. Wash.
