Squeezing Lemons












Both these lovely ladies gave me the lemonade award:



Being Me

Audrinna

I hope you will jump over and visit each of them.

Each follower on this blog is special and loved. As I pondered the lemonade award. I thought of how each of us have or are experiencing lemons in our lives. That makes us understand each other. We are all in some way kindred spirits.

What do we do with all the lemons? Do we allow them to rot in our midst or do we make lemonade and share it with others. As I pass this lemonade award to each of you, I pray you will make lemonade and share it with the less fortunate around you.
Let's not allow a single lemon to rot and stink up our lives! Get to squeezing, dear friends. Take all the "yucky stuff" in your life and make lemonade!

Squeezing lemons,

Andrea

This was great-I think everybody has a lemon or two that can relate to this. Some days I think that I have a much bigger lemon than anybody else but when I look around, I realize my lemon is "itty-bitty" compared to some peoples.

(((HUGS))) to you and your pack!
