My Sweeteners

They say that if life gives you lemons make lemonade, but it has been my experience that lemonade made only with lemons is a recipe for a very bitter brew and life–and believe me I’ve tried!

I’ve found that adding sweeteners can help a lot, both in life and in lemonade. My favorite life sweetenrs include love, kindness, and gratitude. When I remember to include generous helpings of each my life becomes like a wonderfully sweet lemonade with just enough tartness to help me enjoy the sweetness all the more.
