They May Have Lost Everything In The Wildfire, But Life Gave Them A Single Lemon
True to the phrase, this story of hope in the face of destruction has literally allowed a couple to “make lemonade.”
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”
Life doesn’t always play fair, and as the common saying goes, its up to us to make the best of a bad situation. How can we turn the hard times around when so much seems impossible to overcome? One couple from California arrived at the site where their home used to stand and found that everything had burned in an uncontrollable wildfire.
While walking along, he noticed something…a single lemon had survived the blaze, hanging on miraculously to the branches of his crisp lemon tree.
Look hon, we can have lemon in our drinks tonight!” He said, holding it out to her.
We got out alive and still have each other; we are blessed,” she replied.
The devastation could be seen wide and far, but for some reason, this lemon survived. Life had literally handed them a lemon.
They chose to make lemonade. While others hadn’t been so fortunate, they survived together to live another day, and that alone was worth celebrating.
