When Life Gives you Lemons, Make Lemonade!


By Michelle Lussmyer (Family Coach Supervisor) and Kate Swanson (Engagement)

Safe Families for Children Wisconsin

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life; making lemonade is turning them into something positive or desirable. But what does it really take to make lemonade? Lemonade needs water, sugar, and a pitcher to contain everything. Without knowing you have all the ingredients for sweet lemonade, or feeling empowered to reach for the rest of the ingredients, it’s difficult to imagine turning that sour lemon into something sweet.

Safe Families For Children serves families who lack social networks and live in isolation without support of family and friends dealing with crises such as homelessness, unemployment, child abuse, domestic violence, medical emergencies and alcohol/drug rehabilitation.

Safe Families for Children helps provide radical hospitality to families in crisis.
