It really is the small things in life that make the big differences. When God gives you lemons, make lemonade. Isn't that how the saying goes?

I recently decided I want a fruit tree. My dear friend, Jenny, has a key lime tree and a couple lemon trees. I envy her fruit trees. I watch her little limes pop up and wish I could go home and check on my key limes. I can't. I don't have a fruit tree.

WELL, guess what?? Cullen gave into my annoying pangs of jealousy. He bought me a lemon, a lemon bush - not quite a tree, yet. THEN, I learned it often takes a season before we will really get any lemons on a tree. {Did you hear my heart sink??} Me? The one who does not believe in differed gratification? (Thanks, Mom). I have to wait till this time next year before I have a genuine lemon??

...Nope! Not me! Guess who's lemon tree has baby lemon's sprouting??? MINE! That is who's. I am such a proud fruit tree mom!

See, it really is the small things in life that make me smile.

  1. Are you sure those are lemon sprouts? Perhaps it's just blooms right now? I think the fruit and the blooms "bloom" seperate... I could be 100% wrong. Who am I to burst your bubble, er, lemon.
