I had a bad day this week. I was grouchy and frustrated about many things. During my grouchy day, a well-meaning, perky friend told me to be more positive with a little saying. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. I was a bit annoyed ,until I realized how fun it was to rewrite the saying.

When life gives you lemons, throw the lemons at the person who is driving you crazy.

When life gives you lemons, chop down the tree because it will keep giving you lemons until you get rid of it and plant something else.

When life gives you lemons, wait a minute…we have lemons.. When did that happen?

When life gives you lemons, sit on your bed and cry. It’s easier than actually doing something about your lemon problem.

Since we are talking about lemons, here is a photo of our  lemon tree. It actually gave us three lemons this year. We made lemonade.
