I remember the time when I realized I could make 25 cents by selling lemonade at the bottom of our driveway. Now, I only made 25 cents from the next-door neighbor because our neighborhood was in a very low traffic area. But the point was that I could see what a bit of effort and planning could do . . . what the possibilities were. Maybe that’s why I created not one, but 2 lemon scented candles. One is an homage to Old Town in Chicago and the other is a delicious, fresh lemon verbena scent. These candles remind me of that initial entrepreneurial spirit at a young age . . . the fresh breath of “what could be.” And it drives me to keep thinking forward and to keep moving in a straight line . . . and to continue down the path that is before me. We are on such a crazy life journey together. Let’s make the best of it and as we wind down August, have gratitude for our blessings – like candles! Here’s hoping each of you has a “Lemonade Stand” that you are growing . . . whatever that means for you. Wishing you all of the Cocosoy Joy.
