When Life Gives You Lemons… Make Lemonade?

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! Do you ever get to that point in life where it would just be so easy to become a hermit? 

Make Lemonade?

When Life Gives You Lemons

Oh, boy has the last two months been a doozy!  I really don’t even know where to start this post other than I am at the end of my rope. And when I’m at the end of my rope it’s time to let go and let God handle things. Even though lately it feels like He’s kind of just sitting back and watching everything fall apart. No, I’m not blaming Him because I know he does things to make us stronger and doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle. Lately, though it’s like come on God I need a break.

See, back in the beginning of June my husband tore his ACL and has been off work since. Sunday the 23rd, he fell and broke his patella on the same leg he just had repaired. (I know I need to put him in a bubble). All of this combined with the accident he had back in November has just been one tornado after the other, but I can’t lose hope. Right?

So, anyway enough of the ugly. Let’s find some funny quotes and some fun facts. (I found most of these from Google images and The Fact Site)

“I’m going to stand outside. So if anyone asks, I’m outstanding.”

“Admit it… Life would be so boring without me.”

“I am not anti-social. I am just really pro-me.”

Fun Facts

A flock of crows is known as a murder.

The person who invented the Frisbee was cremated and made into frisbees after he died! 

The total number of steps in the Eiffel Tower is 1665. 

I hope these quotes and fun facts made you smile and hopefully laugh. They were definitely needed after the months I’ve had!

    I love your sayings. What does Doozy mean? To be honest I have also been at the end of my rope this week 😉

      Crazy, out of control, or just plain exhausting 🙂
