A change in perspective

It is interesting how things we encounter during the day can cause a complete change in perspective. A little while ago I spoke with a client who I’ve worked with for a long time who has been hospitalized with a lot of health issues. One result is that she has been placed on the heart transplant list which is both a really good thing and a difficult thing because of all the things that have to happen to get there.

I am reminded of what I was told as a little kid but rarely paid attention to: having one’s health is more valuable than just about anything. It’s something that is often lost on young people like me at that time who are typically healthy but a little bit of age tends to change the perspective.

If you have your health and can be around family this weekend give thanks, that is a very valuable thing.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
