When Life Gives You Lemons.


As previously mentioned, we’ve had a rough week.
It did, however, get much better when I found a bright yellow package on our front porch.
The tag said, “When life gives you lemons, here are a few ideas.”
Inside the package I found this:





















The tags were every bit as cute as the actual gift--she is so clever!

“When life gives you lemons make lemonade.”—with lemonade
“When life give you lemons eat them, they’re good for you.  Life knows best.” –with lemons
“When life gives you lemons sell them on EBAY.” With lemon meringue gum and cash
“When life gives you lemons be grateful life gave you something.”—with lemonheads
“When life gives you lemons throw them back and yell I wanted chocolate.”  --with m&ms
“When life gives you lemons forget the lemonade, squirt them on lobsters.”—with a giftcard to Red Lobster


Since only about 5 people are aware of our situation, I was 98% sure it was from my sister, Heather.
I went to her house and asked, “Why didn’t you stay and visit when you dropped off the package?”
She said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
I turned to my niece, Rachel, (who I knew had stayed home sick from school that day),
and I said, “Rachel, did you come to my house today?”
Rachel said, “Yes!  And I was the one that got to put the gift on your porch!”

Ha ha ha!  Love that girl, and I love my “anonymous gift.”
