When life gives you lemons....

....you make lemon bars.
... or you throw them back in life's face....but that is definitely not the Godly thing to do.

These past two months life seemed to give me lemons.... a lot of them. Then, it squeezed the acidic juices into my eyes and laughed...and I cried. It was a battle of wills and those yellow bastards won. But the thing is, I let it. I let it burn and instead of opening my eyes and wiping away the citrus venom, I sat there and let it consume me. Even worse, I let the poison pump through my veins and became a sour WITCH. I was angry all the time...on the inside, and sometimes on the out.

Last week, I called my Mom and told her I was down and out. But, in true mom fashion, she told me to "Stop acting like that."  Real nice mom, kick me while I'm down, thought the little devil hovering over my left shoulder as it danced around like a crazy person.

But, as always, my mom is right. I let it fester, I let it marinate, I let it spoil me. Thanks for being right Mom. I need to focus on the positive and realize the many blessings I have in my life. Oh, SO many blessings.

And those pesky lemons? I'll show you where I stuck them...

I got so many compliments on these! They are SOOO good!

These'll make you smile.

Here's to happier days that are focused on the positive and to making those lemons into something fabulous.

Can't get any better than that.


  1. ...you get creative! Your mom has the right attitude. I know times are tough, and it seems like everything keeps bombarding you, but it'll be ok. Believe me, I know ALL too well about those pesky lemons, but I choose each and every day to make the most of them. Keep your head up, that great smile on your face, and, as Tigger would do, keep bouncin'. TTFN! :-)

  2. Those lemon bars look soooo good! Great job! Keep you head up girlie and never forget all of the wonderful blessings God has given you! =)
