I’ve been blessed to do many things in my life. I’ve traveled around the world, met some dear and special friends, been gifted with an amazing and healthy child and benefited from hard work and a little (or a lot) of luck. I say all that because I was reminded of how blessed I am and how lucky I am when I was recently asked to speak and participate at the ribbon cutting of a community project my company was involved in called CECO (http://www.cecfl.org). Lil Fo aka @jp4est dedicated countless hours working on this project as superintendent and project manager and I know he was moved by his accomplishments and participation. It introduced him firsthand to how important it is for us as business people and as good humans to give back to those who are faced with challenges different than our own. Knowing that the kids that will be touched by this organization will live improved lives as a result of our actions is all the reward we need. Meeting them and their parents and seeing their smiles when they moved down the halls being greeted by a caring and loving staff brought tears to the many people that were a part of bringing this project together. We’ve built many projects as a company but these are our favorite and the ones we are most proud of.

Honor Flight orientation this morning where I met 80 yr old war veteran George Jordan. I’ll be George’s guardian on September 27th when we fly to DC to see the war memorials and tomb of the unknown soldier. George has stage 4 cancer and visiting the memorials is on his bucket list. I can’t wait to experience this trip with him. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

We spent time with family, ate good food, drank too much, listen to great music, visited to new places and made new friends. I’d say Follapalooza weekend in Chi-town was a success. Our Chakra is balanced πŸ‘¬πŸ•πŸ»πŸŽΆπŸŒ† (at Chakra Spiritual Spa)
