Sounds fine to me.  I can't see the forest from (all) the trees (that are in
my way).  Both ways are perfectly rational to me.  My roommate check,
however, told me I was crazy.  Both roommates rejected the basic line with
"from" but got sketchy when I added the parentheticals.  But, if "for" =
"because of" in the trees' example, then compare:
I got an A from my hard work.

Maybe I'm just wrong.  I guess I should of thought before I spoke (haha).
