It was the swinging of the branches… and the gray in between which made me realize how much I love God and how much He loves me.
When I think about the times, beautiful passages, I have been able to share with my parents. I remember outside dinners on the patio, with the sound of sprinklers jetting quietly and uniformly across the lawn. The trees stand tall, straight, gentle. I look up at them; they are my childhood trees. I played in them, I prayed to them, I though they were a symbol of surety, peace, strength. And I look back at my parents as we eat dinner, sharing, discussing, laughing, and with sometimes silent spaces… and to the trees again. Still strong; so are we.
“The contentedness, that ability to sort of focus on what really matters in life, friends and family and good times in a career – versus having some feeling of being on a treadmill or a really challenging uphill battle – gives our city [Chicago] a sort of pleasant contentedness and satisfaction with life. I find that really appealing about both the city and also our customer base.”

Do let yourself express your thoughts, for no reason! Give yourself that time, and listen to your inner inclinations. I wrote this for one of my most precious friends, Anastasia Miron.
If you focus on the transaction you miss the greater whole. It’s only going after a piece, instead of working on something more infinite.
