Lemons

That old saying goes, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade."

I don't like lemonade, actually.

So I'm going to slice that lemon up into real fine slivers, and drop them into a glass of iced tea, slightly sweetened.

That's how I do what's best for me, not what is expected.

Dealing with some lemons of life right now, but everything's going to turn out alright.

I'd do the same, Janna. I share your feelings about lemonade vs. iced tea with lemon.

And about being yourself. Hang in there.

Uggh, nothing worse than when life gives you lemons. Hang in there. :)

Patti said...

I'm not a big fan of lemonade either, but if you put some orange slices it in, it's rather good.

Hope you enjoy your iced tea.

Hope your lemons turn sweet VERY soon! Sorry, Janna. :(

Jessica Nelson said...

I'm sorry Janna. Lemons are sour. I didn't know you all had sweet tea in Missouri. Is Missouri considered a southern state? Hmmm. LOL
Here's to tea and sugar for Miss Janna! :-)

You are in my prayers Janna. And, I'll take the lemonade if you are not going to drink it.

When I get too many lemons I use it as lemon-aid literally! But seriously, I know how it feels, so sending you positive energy across the miles.
