Life & Lemons

The idea that you can make lemonade when life hands you lemons is total bullshit.In order to make lemonade, life has to also hand you water and hopefully sugar or some other kind of sweetener. And some kind of container to put it all in. You can't just make lemonade out of lemons only.

And furthermore, what's so bad about lemons? Why do you have to improvise at all? You've got lemons. Be happy with them. They are fruit.

Also. I need to clear something up.

A few days ago I wrote a post about bricks and hearts and people dying and sadness and all that. My friend Lauren disagreed and reminded me about the mercy of God on his kids, and how, essentially, he won't let you drag around a sack of bricks forever, constantly tugging at your heartstrings and bumming you out.

I think you're right Lauren. I shouldn't let things bum me out, especially before anything happens. Especially when I can't really do anything about it anyway.

Life is good, and I love every single second of it.

And I am not complaining.

Life didn't hand me lemons, it handed me glory.
