Relationships are like a rose bush, and there are several parts to it. You have the roots, the body, the thorns, and the flowers. There are different seasons for a rose bush, and sometimes there are no flowers, only thorns. Other times, the plant is dormant and has nothing but a stump. During difficult times, you have to remember that that rose bush is alive and still has roots, even if it doesn’t seem like it. If you keep watering the rose bush at those flowerless and dormant times, you will reap a tremendous reward, which will be a plant full of completely beautiful and fragrant roses.
