If life hands you a tree make tree-ade – or so they say. Actually they say ‘if life hands you lemons, make lemonade’. But you have to work with what you got.
Of course the point of the saying is that when something seemingly bad happens, you should try to find some way to make good use of it.
And that is true, many times things don’t turn out the way we wanted but in the end we find something in the situation that isn’t so bad. If fact sometimes we end up with something better than the thing we originally wanted.
Like in Office Space when the one guy backs out of his driveway, gets hit by a car and is severely injured and ends up getting a bunch of money from it and becomes rich.
Certainly my career hasn’t turned out the way I had planned or had wanted it to. On the other hand, now I’m able to work from home and will, hopefully, someday be able to be a work at home mom and spend more time with my child than I would have been able to otherwise. And, if I work real hard and run into a bit of luck I may even be able to make more money than I would have if things had worked out differently.
However, in our case – today we were handed a tree on top of our shed and vegetable garden:
The only tree-ade I can see with this is that I hadn’t written a post up yet for today – then the tree fell – and it gave me something to write a quick post about without a lot of effort.
So see – there’s always a bright side to everything!

And for those interested, our neighbor Bob had part of a dead tree fall on fence a couple weeks ago. Lots of tree-ade in this neighborhood lately.
So remember – when things don’t turn out how you wanted – look for ways to make
tree-ade lemonade out of it!
