The Business School Of Lemons To Lemonade
This is a pic of my daughter Britt. She graduated last May from Rio Salado, a local community college. She started Arizona State University this fall. I was thrilled to get this fwd. email from Britt yesterday…

She’s tearing it up @ ASU! I’m so proud of her! Couldn’t help but post this! She works full time, is a great Mom to four kids. Great sweet daughter! So very proud of her!!!
I am amazed by this beautiful person and all that she accomplishes! She has four beautiful kids…
Liz, Nate, Aaron and Tom!
Britt has had her share of heart breaking obstacles to overcome. Things that make or break you! As her Mom, I have watched and felt each heartache along with her… She has taken every damn lemon thrown her way and is making the most delicious vat of lemonade! I couldn’t be more proud of her! OMG I’m bursting with pride and adoration for this gal!
* If you look back into my post archives, you will see a post or two about how hard life was for Britt after a serious burn injury to her daughter Lizzie’s leg occurred. Britt had to withdraw from school for a few semesters to tend to all that unfortunate mess was, physical, legal and very emotional! I remember her lowest point… Feeling as if she would never make it through…
This makes the acknowledgement of this achievement even sweeter!
I’m as proud as can be today!
