Wendy's Words #5

When Handed A Lemon, Make Lemonade (title by Anonymous) I’ve lived through lemons, sugaring them. “When handed a lemon, make lemonade.” That is what some sage has said. “When handed a lemon, make lemonade.” There is always a use For lemon juice. Do you know what to do with trouble, children? Make lemonade. Make lemonade. “Handed a lemon, make lemonade.”
