Everything shall pass away, the good, the bad and the ugly too. All one can do is to stay calm and ride the storm, with complete and strong faith in God. It's true that sometimes, God brings the greatest rains with a storm; and likewise, God also brings the greatest blessings to you, with your difficulty.
