Two weeks ago I was admitted to the hospital with a severe asthma attack. I was there for 1 night and then sent home on meds. Well…on Wednesday I ended up back in the hospital with it again…this time with only 25% breathing capacity…which is really bad. This bout had me there for 2 nights. I got home late this afternoon.
Now, I could sit here and feel sorry for myself and get depressed about all the meds I have to be on, or that I don’t get to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, or that my meds make me bloat up like a balloon.
Or….I could take my lemon and make something beautiful with it.
Putting together a beautiful, bright, cheery, puzzle…
Catch up on some TV shows, talked to plenty of friends via text and email.
And on day 3, today, I started thinking about the beautiful lemony projects I have been working on at home.
My herbs that I planted a week ago have began to sprout through the soil.
The pretty little lemony table I bought a week ago is a great place to house some of those herbs.
My bistro table on my front porch is currently sporting some beautiful yellow flowers I recently picked up.
My back porch is coming together with some bright cheery décor I have been finding.
I have this yummy lemon scented WoodWick candle to burn whenever I need a stress relief.
I have this wonderful Jura Cappresso E8 coffee machine at home, with our own fresh roasted coffee beans...and I don't have to drink nasty hospital coffee every day!
Oh, and I have these 2 beautiful little faces to come home to. What can be more inspiring than that?
I will get through this. Asthma will not conquer me. My life isn’t over yet. I have too many things to live for, and many more lemony concoctions to create!
How about you? What do you create with life’s lemons?
