Lemons and Lemonade

Thank you to all of you for your kind comments on my post with my pictures. I was very nervous about posting them because faces are much more recognizable than names. But the cat is out of the bag now, so there's no going back. :-) And you all are very sweet, by the way. And to address some of the comments:
I have very dark blond hair that I highlight. It's not brown, it's just a very mousy-dishwater color that I hate because it's not dark enough to be brown but yet it always looks dirty. Blech. Thank goodness for highlights! My hair used to be this color naturally until my early 20's when it started darkening up.
I also have a strange wave/kink to my hair. It used to be straight as a bone but the older I get, the wavier it gets...and it's not a good wave either. It's usually out of whack if I let it dry naturally. So I blow dry it straight and then add my own softer curls to it. Such a hassle, this hair!
I received the Making Lemonade from Lemons award from A over at Remember All The Way. She is very strong in her faith and reminds me all the time that I don't know God's plan but that He does have one and I should be more open to letting Him show it to me. Here are the rules for the award:

- Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.

- Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude. - I'm breaking the rule on this one, sorry. :-)

- Link the nominees within your post.

- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I would like to nominate the following blogs in no particular order:
Babies everywhere but none that call me mama - She has such a sweet heart and a gentle nature that no matter how bad things might seem at the time, she really deals well with it.
999 reasons to laugh at infertility - I think the name says it all. When we are at our lowest, she makes us laugh.
We got hitched...- She has been through so much and has always just forged ahead that she truly did make lemonade out of her (possible 3!!) lemons.
Sprogblogger - Another example of someone unwilling and unable to give up on the dream of motherhood.
Peanut Noodle - I must of my most favorite blogs. Another one down in the trenches doing whatever it takes to make it to the finish line and enjoy a big gulp of lemonade!

I thought I was the only one with this hair issue! It just keeps getting darker! Makes the grey stand out more. :(

Teejay, you are just the sweetest! Thanks for thinking I deal well with things :). It certainly doesn't always feel like it!
