Lemons into Lemonade

So as I am sitting here tonight, thinking about all the "STUFF" that happens to each and everyone of us everyday... isn't if funny how out of all those lemons that are toss or chucked or hurried at us that we can take those lemons and make them into lemonade. REALLY!

As I was reading Abby's last post. that is the first thing I was thinking how she made lemonade out of her lemons. WOW Abby. AWESOME.

and as I was talking with MOM and Liz and Albert tonight, How each of us can help make other people's lemonade.

Now I know I have to be a little different... But I quess I should be just happy with the lemonade that is given to me instead of trying to make it something other than lemonade.

I truthfully sooner have strawberry, raspberry or even mango lemonade before I just have lemonade.

where am I going with this... Here it is.... each of us sometimes have to add something into that lemonade to make it what it needs to be. anyone can have just a bowlfull of lemons... but you cant have that lemonade with out someone squeezing the heck out of the lemons to get the juice. I personnally have a juicer.. you need someone to provide the sugar to sweeten the lemon juice and you cant just have sugar lemon juice you need a little bit of water to make it just right... and you also have to have the ice.... and in JEN's Case you need a little hard stuff... but when it all comes right down to it....

We are here to help and lift each other and to provide strenght to each other and to BE A FRIEND or a family member.

What a wonderful thing it is for each of us to have each other.

I truely could not have been able to make the lemonade this last month with out the help of each of you. Ben listening to me as I cried my eyes out and did not feel like I was going to be able to make my own lemonade. Or Mom just saying "What Lesson have you learned about making lemonade" or to Auntie Wes. who know matter what she was doing she would listen to me Grip about how hard it was to squeeze those lemons... but after we all look back at this isnt this just about the best thing we had ever done in our lives was to make Lemonade out of our Lemons....

Here is to that wonderful glass of Mango Lemonade!!!!

Thanks for the memories we are creating for not only us but for the ones we love...
