When life gives you lemons…

I wrote a massive long blog post, and then it became a victim of my delete button.

Suffice to say, this week has been challenging. I feel like my mental and emotional state has been under attack and it has just made life a struggle mixed with a weird amount of guilt.

Now behind on my college work, with an increasing to-do list (with decreasing time to complete it).

A few friends have been in accidents of varying sorts over the last few days too. One Thursday, one Friday, one today. I’d really appreciate if you could pray for them, God knows each situation and that’s all I’ll say here.

For me, I’m giving myself some mental health first aid – to-do list or not!

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 

Today I travelled down the coast to spend the day with my friends who I haven’t seen since February. Their sons told me they were taking me to the beach to find rockpools and CARTWHEEL! We found rockpools, but before we got to cartwheeling we were caught in a few heavy downpours of rain (reminding us we live in Scotland…!) so we had to take shelter.

What do you do when the rain stops your beach cartwheeling? Pretend you’re Gene Kelly and dance in the rain…



…and let your friend post on facebook this picture with the status that I was encouraging his kids to ‘pole dance’. :O It was only because there were no lampposts available! Another stellar godmothering moment from me then… ha ha!
