When life gives you lemons….


When I was little my mom cross-stitched this saying, framed it, and hung it on my bedroom wall. Whenever I was sent to my room, I would stare at this picture and curse to myself at how irritating it was. And I was sent to my room a lot…you can only imagine how much I hated that saying.

Little did I know then that life was one big batch of lemons. I’m in my 30’s and I’m still learning that I have to make lemonade. Everyday we’re handed those lemons and everyday we have a choice of whether or not we’re going to turn that negative into a positive or just stay irritable and miserable. Most days I opt for the latter, but I know full well that’s the wrong choice. Can you imagine how much better life would be if we all turned one batch of lemons into a nice big pitcher of lemonade?

    Just imagining little Katie being sent up to her room, looking at that saying and pouting to herself is cracking me up!!!
