My Husband Can Make Lemonade Out of the Lemons in My Life

Hello everyone! Sorry for being away for a few days. Thank you to everyone that checked on me and kept me in their prayers this past week. It's still hard dealing with my friend's death, but each day that goes by gets easier.

Some you guys know that I have Tourett's Syndrome. The tics can get worse if you're under a lot of stress and boy have I been under some stress. My tics have been more frequent and violent lately than they have been in a long time. I was pretty much on bed rest so that I could make it to my friend's funeral on Friday.

Sometimes the tics, the soreness from the twitching, and the stares is just too much for me. Tourette's is definitely the "lemon" in my life. But as the saying goes, "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade". Well, it's hard for me to make lemonade from this. But, my husband makes the sweetest lemonade out of my lemons.

The other day when my tics were really bad, my husband tenderly took my hand and said so sweetly, "I love you sweetheart. Tics and all.". I just melted when he said that. See, when we married, I didn't have Tourette's. This is something I developed about 8 months ago. So for him to still love me in such an unconditional way is amazing! Like I said before, my husband can make lemonade out of the lemons in my life.

I hope that all of you have someone like that.
