When life gives you lemons...

...what am I doing wrong...you ponder...

...you create and hope it works...

...you set sights for a more polished image...

...you pull out all the stops...

...and you create...and create...

...pulling in bits of knowledge...

Align Center
...and a few friends...


...then you regroup and begin again...

...into dreams of strawberry fields forever...


...and hope your path is sound...when you've lost so much...a soul mate...a faith in America and what it's all about...THE AMERICAN DREAM...

Well, my daughter and I are again joining forces at 'The Candle Shed'...trying to rise above recession and losses, to rebuild 'The Shed' to what it once was, a small biz
AND...

THE AMERICAN DREAM

Hey Sharon...
You are an amazing woman... You have more tallent in your pinky finger, than 10 of us put together... You are a true artist, and with whatever direction your life may lead, you will be great....
Sometimes we get spinning so fast, we can't see the forest, for the tree's... Take a deep breath, sit, for a moment...then move on...
All my love to you...

It all looks wonderful, Sharon. You'll do great. If I could get there, I'd be your best customer!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hi sweets, Your sounding kinda low. Barb says it best, Slow down and Take a deep breath. Things will work out. Maybe not fast as you would like. but, they will.

Don't get disillusioned. We just never know what tomorrow will bring. You are extremely talented plus you have the ability to take care of yourself one way or another. This new venture sounds terrific -- keep the faith. Have a great Thanksgiving. Jan

P.S. When life hands me lemons, I like to make lemontinis!

Yup, just put your big girl pants on and deal with it!
All my love to you and Piper. I know that you will power through it all and be stronger for it. You really do make a good team when you join forces.
I'm rooting for you both and I know things will get better and better...

Hey Missy!
Thanks for the wonderful comment! I published it, but it hasn't posted... If it doesn't show up, I just wanted you to know, how very much I appreciated your kind words...
Hang in there!

Hi Sharon,

Teaming up with your daughter sounds like a splendid idea! Combining your strengths will move you forward.

I mentioned Etsy to you before. If you haven't checked it out yet, maybe give it a look. Your candles and soaps would fit right in and the cracked head lights would be a major hit. Never hurts to have a second revenue stream...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours out in Iowa!
