Making Lemonade out of Lemons!
I don't know about everywhere but here in Florida...unemployment is high! Three family members here lost their jobs in one day last week! We have our own business but have had to make some serious cuts...letting people go is the most difficult aspect...really difficult!
We have stayed busy...accepted work we might otherwise have turned down before.
I think so much of life is attitude...this is not to say I always have a good attitude...my family would call me out publicly if I wrote that I did!
But...so much of what has happened to us... well, I could really be resentful and think it isn't fair because we have worked hard and we are in our 50's....blah! blah! blah!
But...I try hard to look at the blessings I have...and I have many!!
We have to take a job in St. Augustine, Florida because there isn't anything for us in Tampa right now...So...we are making the best of it...we have rented a cute house close to the historical section of town and we will be there for a month! My favorite restaurant Harry's, is a 10 minute walk!
I will be blogging on location...(who's says I can't pretend to be Samantha Brown) turning Lemons to Lemonade!
