You know that quote about when life gives you lemons you make lemonade? What do you do when it seems that life decided to hand an entire bowl of lemons? Well you make lemonade for like a year, that’s what.
There are some weeks when it seems like God woke up and thought it would be funny to place every obstacle in my way. Times when no matter what I do I can’t seem to get past it. Of course I do manage to move on but there have been moments that I’m not what the cost of moving on was.
If you had asked me a few years ago if I would happy being single I would have told no way on God’s green earth. Especially not at 40 years old. I mean women my age aren’t suppose to be alone. Yet I am and I am taking care of my family on my own as well. And, guess what? I am now the happiest I have been since I can’t remember when. In fact I pretty sure the last time I had been this happy was before my dad passed away sixteen years ago.
Life has a funny way of showing you what you’re made of. So I will take my bowl of lemons and enjoy the lemonade I make. I deserve it and will relish each and every moment.
