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, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
