Motivational Monday…What Lemons?
One more holiday before we wake up to 2022. I hope that everyone’s Christmas went as they hoped.
The past two years have called for us to make adjustments and do something with the lemons we’ve been given.
Our neighbor was not able to be with their family here in town because a family member contracted the virus. (They are doing fine, no fever)
Even though they had just seen them a few nights earlier, they spent Christmas Day depressed because they were not going to be with them. We offered to bring over cookies and other goodies to them but they passed. We invited them to join us at our family gathering, but they declined.
The Glass of Lemonade…
While ours is not the only family to have been impacted, we did have a few illnesses this week. We had 2 cases of the flu and one virus (mild with no fever.)
Everyone is fine and mending.
Of course, we were all disappointed but we still had a good time yesterday. We pushed back some of the activities we’d planned and will all get together after the first of the year.
Life is about learning to make adjustments and side steps on the path we’re taking. When we come upon a bump in the road we push through... or not.
We all have the choice when life throws lemons at us. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather add some sugar and water and have a nice glass of lemonade, rather than suck on sour lemons.
When life gives you lemons…learn to juggle. James Patterson
