Oh Chicago, you rarely cease to amaze me. You can be incredibly kind and devastatingly cruel. You can be the brightest of bright and the darkest of dark. You stand tall in your celebrations and bow to your sorrows. Today, March 14, 2017, was the perfect example of how you simply are life itself.
A snow storm predicting up to 10″ was to hit Chicago over a two day period in MARCH. Now truly that isn’t all that surprising as we’ve gotten snow that late, and later, before, but this winter had been very mild – until now. Spring was in the air and certainly the thought of snow wasn’t something I was ready to deal with. I’m in ‘boat mode’ already, which by the way is still a few months off.
It was cold, it was windy, and it was snowing. It also was quite beautiful. One moment it would be dark and snowing hard, then the sun would come out and the snow was sparkly as it fell to the earth. And then as the day came to a close, the calm after the storm appeared in all her glory.
I had my head buried in my computer much of the day when not peeking out to see the snow fall. I turned to look out and truly mother nature took my breath away with the blue skies and billowy white clouds that seemed to tell me ‘I’m always here for you.’
So, if you find yourself in your own personal storm, look for the evidence that love and beauty is right there with you. The more you find beauty in the storm, the more magical your sky will be once on the other side of it.
Big big hugs,
