It's kind of heartbreaking when a favorite flower dies away. But it's a gift that one flower leaves just as another favorite makes its first appearance. The lilacs are dying off, but forget-me-nots are everywhere. It is a really simple grace that they don't all bloom at once. .
Friendships are the same way. They naturally have their seasons. You'll talk to certain people every day for months and then suddenly not at all. It doesn't mean that friendship is dead, it's just has passed it's season for now. That friend won't be forgotten and will still be loved. Just not present. There may be a winter of friendships when it feels like there will never be anything good again. But winter is nearly over. Spring is just around the corner. .
When a season has passed, something beautiful will come to replace it and there will still be flowers.

From a sunny Chicago morning a couple weeks ago☕️☀️ I've had such amazing luck with weather while traveling this Spring. Unfortunately I've been a little out of touch because I dropped my phone in a glacial lake while hiking near Seattle last weekend 🤦🏼‍♀️

Sometimes I wish I can just fly. So after that photo I just stayed up there swinging for a good 5 minutes until my legs started to go numb.

Thanks @amakenas for snapping the pic.

Some of today's non stop fog with the Sears Tower. Shot with a Canon 7D and 55-250mm zoom lens. Check out my story for my setup for this. I learned today that the top floor of my office is very shaky. I tried to stabilize it in post but since the fog took over the full frame it wasn't able to lock down some points to stabilize. Lesson learned for next time.

When you live this close to the beach, how can you be unhappy? Even if it is frozen over 4 to 6 months of the year! 😝🤣🌊#enjoyillinois #hdrphotography #illinoisbeaches #landscapephotography
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer. "I need somebody with arms strong enough to rustle a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. Somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have to wait lunch until his wife's done feeding visiting ladies and tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon -- and mean it." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt. And watch it die. Then dry his eyes and say, 'Maybe next year.' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from a persimmon sprout, shoe a horse with a hunk of car tire, who can make harness out of haywire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. And who, planting time and harvest season, will finish his forty-hour week by Tuesday noon, then, pain'n from 'tractor back,' put in another seventy-two hours." So God made a farmer.

God had to have somebody willing to ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds and yet stop in mid-field and race to help when he sees the first smoke from a neighbor's place. So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bails, yet gentle enough to tame lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-combed pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the broken leg of a meadow lark. It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed and rake and disc and plow and plant and tie the fleece and strain the milk and replenish the self-feeder and finish a hard week's work with a five-mile drive to church. "Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh and then sigh, and then reply, with smiling eyes, when his son says he wants to spend his life 'doing what dad does.'" So God made a farmer. -Paul Harvey
