The old saying “when life gives you lemons make lemonade” used to be so trite to me. It always seemed to be a pat answer from happy-go-lucky people who didn’t have a lot of pain in life. Now I see things differently.

I’ve learned this: opportunity comes from pain.

  • We are able to readily understand the pain of others
  • We mature
  • We become stronger
  • We are wiser
  • We become thankful
  • We may write a book or begin a support group to help others

These opportunities make something beautiful out of pain!
