This growing season, my Meyer Lemon tree produced 11 lemons which is a windfall of abundance after last year’s harvest of one small fruit. Bright yellow, they hang heavy and ripe, encouraging my culinary creativity and spurring a dinner party.
The adage “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” is a way of life for me literally and figuratively. I choose the glass-half-full, expecting the best from whatever situation I find myself in. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic report that a positive perspective provides many benefits. And it makes me happy, even when life’s lemons surround me.
