this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Flaky Frivolous Fridays and a big Thank You

Hi friends. I’m sorry I’ve been really flaky recently. I said I was back. I visited your blogs. Left a few messages here and there. Then I went AWOL again. I’ll come clean soon I promise – God-willing. (One of you already sussed me out…but who?? 😛 ) In the meantime… I wanted to share this cool video. I watched it and thought of all of you…

“for a second there I was thinking, when did they put cushions on the subway? Really comfortable.. thank you.”

For over a year now, you dear friends have been the cushions on the subway I’ve been riding. I’m so grateful. Thank you. Have a lovely weekend…take good care, catch up soon!

Getting to know you!

Snickers More Nuts Limited Edition

I don’t really eat chocolate bars. I find them too sweet. I’m a dark chocolate girl, so generally speaking, the chocolate bar section in the supermarket doesn’t draw me in. But this week, I found myself vulnerable whilst grocery shopping.

I was hungry.

And the power aisle snickered at me, grabbing me with a limited edition chocolate bar. “£1 only” for a pack of four More Nuts or More Caramel? D’uh. If I wanted more caramel, I’d buy a Mars Bar and I never do that of my own free will. So something in the pit of my stomach made me raise my hand to the shelf and put a pack of the above in my shopping trolley.

It’s the end of the week. Time to let go a little, raise a glass of the bubbly stuff. I wanted to thank you all for your support and encouragement. The week has been more than manageable punctuated with some really thoughtful comments at the ends of my posts that have really lifted me.  And seeing as we’re friends now (I hope I’m not being presumptuous), I was wondering… are you nuts like me or more nice and sweet? 🙂
