Life and Lemons

"When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade" so the saying goes! Well it is really hard to make lemonade from life's lemons but those are words to live by. I was robbed over the weekend on my way home. I am still in a bit of a shock and feeling kinda like an idiot for getting robbed but i am not hurt and i managed to get back my ID.( Thanks be to God and St. Anthony). St. Anthony is traditionally invoked when you cant find something lost or stolen.  I am so grateful for his intercession and am happy i got back the most important thing.

There i was on a Saturday night with no phone and no money to get me home. I honestly wanted to cry and i was in a state of mild confusion pondering my next move. Five minutes later i said to myself, bad things happen all the time and worse things have happened. Thank God i am not hurt, so i tried to shrug it off and explained my situation to a motorcycle rider who got me home.

The next day i woke up feeling a little blue and even today i still think about Saturday night but God has given me the serenity to accept what happened, learn something from it and move on. I need to be more cautious as i go about my day but i am not going to live my life in fear! Bad hings sometimes happen but how do we respond to them? That is what matters. Don't let despair or bitterness ruin your life. Things can be replaced! God bless you all!
