Good Old Fashioned Joy

A while back, I was honored by two of my fellow bloggers with the distinguished "Lemonade Award". This award is presented to people who are thought to demonstrate great Attitude &/or Gratitude.

Thank you Shabby Girl & Tricia for sharing this honor with me. I have always savored the tangy mix of lemons & sugar in a refreshing glass of lemonade, but have never really thought of myself as having an uplifting spirit.

As I wrote in yesterday's post, I used to have a much more pessimistic view of life. But since becoming a mother, I have tried to wear my rose colored glasses along the way. Writing a daily "gratitude journal" to remind me about all of the little things I am thankful for has totally changed my perspective about the life I've been given.

So remember to share your gratitude throughout your journey. And when life hands you lemons, add water, then blend the bitterness of the world with a spoonful of sugar from your happy heart. Sip, smile & share!


  1. Thanks for the link Lisa. As I told you earlier, reading your blog has helped me improve my attitude. I'm not anywhere near where I need to be, and I still have serious issues that I can't change by an attitude adjustment, but reading your words has made a difference to me.

  2. Thanks for the mention! Let's face it, none of us are up 24/7.
    But you definitely deserve the award!

  3. Congratulations on the award. You really do deserve it. Your commitment to show gratitude is an inspiration, and I always enjoy stopping by to see what you're grateful for each day.



It's always a pleasure having you stop by... so please jot down a few words of wisdom before you leave.
