Lemons to Lemonade

Life has handed us “lemons” over time, with the last two years giving us more than our share of lemons to deal with.

Think back … about a past negative circumstance that you or someone you know turned into something positive or later realized was good after all. Share your Lemons to Lemonade stories forward.
