Southwestern Salad

June 14, 2015

Spending time with Nohely was such a great experience. I never thought I would be able to create such a beautiful bond with her. I hadn’t always been this close to her. Sometimes, I would think to myself that I would not be able to connect with her because I missed out on getting this close to her for some of her years. Life is like that. It throws you lemons and you make lemonade. In this case, we made a healthy dressing for our wonderful Southwestern Salad.

 

I loved a book named “Make Lemonade” growing up. I still love it. I have probably read it about a thousand hundred times. Who knows? I have it in my night stand. I’ve traveled with it everywhere. It has taught me a lot about life. SO many things in life can go wrong, but; it’s up to us to make that damn lemonade when lemons smack you upside the head.

 

 

I will be honest though, I don’t always make lemonade when the shit hits the fan. Sometimes, I just go ballistic because who doesn’t like to be a frantic maniac? Obviously, I gotta get it together when the times get rough. I depend on God to hold me up in moments like that. I guess I kinda pray to Him asking if He can please make me a pitcher of lemonade for me. I’m a bit too dependent on Him.

 

Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. He is everything. Truth be told, there’s a lot of things we will never know until we ask and many things we won’t ask because we know too much. Southwestern Salad, anyone?
