You've heard the saying... "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade".
Well, we've had more than our share of financial lemons roll our way lately. But we've also had quite a few blessings, and for that we're grateful.
Today's lemon was a large one just for me - a lovely root canal this morning. It was a rather sour lemon to swallow, but there was also a blessing to go alongside it... my new dentist (who doesn't know me from the next uninsured person) blessed me with a significant cut in my bill. What a way to make the sour sweet!
When I came home from my appointment, I rested and then felt like trying my hand at making a potholder. In my stash, the perfect fabric was hiding.
As I sewed, my freezing started to come out and I started to feel a little pain. It kind of matches the lemon of a payment that's now waiting for us.
And that's when I decided that today should be a blessing... so I'm offering my new little potholder as a giveaway.
