When Life gives you lemons....

I've always tried to teach my children gratefulness, respect, and finding the blessing in all things.   It's not the behavior or attitude I normally get when things are not going the way they wanted or planned them to.  However, my daughter gave me a lesson of seeing the bright side of a bummer situation.
I was cleaning up the flooded water in our basement and lamenting about how gross it was, that this was not a good situation, and blah blah blah.  Then, I hear Izzy say-
 "At least if it keeps flooding to the top, it could be a swimming pool for us to swim in!"
Thank you Izzy for finding the bright side of the situation, I would have never thought of that!

  1. I had a post it up on my cube wall that said "When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila and salt!" :) Sorry about the flood.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. We appreciate it.
