Lemons by Beautelle Lemons by Beautelle
Lemons

To represent the 'sour things', the hard bits in our lives that are bitter and hard to swallow.

Once we get past it, we are left with the sweet fragrance and lemonade that we extracted from it in our battles ;)

Even though most people dislike these 'lemon' times, we need them in our lives to make us better people and enrich us and our personalities. It adds flavour and can make us strong.
:lemon:

this is my first try at 'word pictures' and most likely my last submitted deviation for 2007. it's been a good year, of course it had its 'lemons' and sour points that were a bit hard to get through, but get through them i did ^^

*holds up a glass of lemonade made from the lemons encountered* Here's to the future and may we always have plenty of lemonade!!

Some words making up the 'lemon'
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade
When life gives you lemons keep the seeds
Got a lemon? Eat it. It'll pass through
When life throws you lemons through back stones
When life gives you lemons, pull a face, itíll make you feel better
zest, part of life, strong, hard to swallow, trials, stimulating, adds flavour, distinctive, unexpected, you just gotta take them as they come, powerful


*yes there is a grammar error, silly me... but i don't have the original file anymore so i can't fix it :(

EDIT: WOW!! A DD??! OMG! thank you SOOO much!! i noted an increase in faves on this... and then someone says congrats?!?! wow ^^ thanks all!! especially :iconarhcamtilnaad:!!!!

“When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!”
