We are all on a journey. Some days the journey is bliss. The sun is shining, the clouds look like fluffy cotton balls floating along the skyline, beautiful music is playing in the background and the warmth is hitting your skin to warm your soul. Other days, the journey is trying. Those days it feels like a stroll though a thunderstorm: the thunder is cracking loudly, the wind incredibly strong and it is holding you back, the rain is cold and feels like needles piercing your face, the lightning keeps shooting down right where you are trying to go and keeping your from your destination and safety.
Life hands people lemons sometimes. It is unavoidable. We will get lemons. …Your bills are bigger than your income, you lost your keys and are late for work, you see an extra 5 pounds on the scale, you broke a nail, your heater broke down on the coldest day in November, you bit into an apple that was rotten, your job is incredibly hard, you might loose your job, someone hurt your feelings the list can go on an on and on… We get lemons sometimes. Right now, I am struggling to make lemonade. Each day seems to get a little harder (okay, a lot harder) I’m not going to complain about my lemons. I’ll save that for another day. Lucky you
How to deal with lemons… Go to the people that will make lemonade *for you* when you are too tired to make lemonade on your own.
I went home this weekend and put all cares away to spend time with the people I love…. minus the husband- he had to stay home to take a test. Bummer. Other than that, the weekend was *bliss*! I was with the people who help me turn my lemons into lemonade. They are the sweetener that makes life tolerable- no wait, a joy.
How can life not be sweet when I am holding a baby like this…. I have to admit that being with these two amazing children is one of the most wonderful things on earth. They are a blessing to my life- so is their momma! I love their momma! Yes, sister- YOU!
