I Never Talk about Work on the Blog.
My Work is Always Serious. Complicated. Stressful. Yet Rewarding.
I deal with the Private Matters of People’s Lives.
My Blog is Silly. Easy. Fun. And Rewarding.

This Week At Work…Wearing the Lawyer Hat…I Found Magic.
Work Happens Here.
Part of What I Do is to Draft Wills for Clients. I am Always careful to put down into words exactly their wishes. We talk about their family and friends and how they want to be remembered. Usually I draft the Will with a Power of Attorney and a Healthcare Directive. It always makes me feel good that the client looks relieved when the documents are completed and executed.
I also do Probates. The Will is presented to me and I meet with the family or Personal Representative to go over the wishes expressed in the Will. There are often lots of stories to tell and tears and laughter.
But for the probates I handle, I never had the pleasure of meeting the person.
Until this Week.
This Week I had my first opportunity to see the whole process. I had met with the Client, Drafted the Will, Laughed and Cried and Shared Stories and saw the Relief when the papers were completed.
She was a Lovely, Fun and Gracious Lady.
One Year Passed.
And then I received a phone call. From a son. His mom was gone. I had done her will.
Yes. I had.
When I met with this family, I felt her presence. As I read the words of the Will, I heard her voice speaking those very words. The words I had carefully written down. I could still hear her insistence about how her estate would be handled.
She felt so very close.
I am Thankful to have been there in the beginning. To have experienced her Light.
And I am So Honored to be asked to Make certain her final voice is heard.
My Work is All About People.
And that Is My Favorite Part.
My Blog is All About Magic.
And with People there is Magic. Always.
