You know, there’s an old saying:  “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  It may sound a little quirky, but it is so true.  Life is so full of challenges, and even really bad stuff.  But when you’re in the middle of the “yuck,” if you can take a deep breath and look around you, you will see that there is still much to be thankful for!  If we can take the time to look at all the things we are grateful for, the difficulty of our challenges can be put in a better perspective.  Life is all about perception.  Finding joy in the little things can bring a peace within, and help us to cope with the hardships going on all around us.
