I feel so fortunate to love my chiropractic work.  Whether it is your work, your play or your family, it is important to find something you love.  As my Granny always said, “Life is short.”  And as we get closer to the end than the beginning, we notice that to be true.  

You have probably heard talk about the five wishes.  They are who do you want to make care decisions for you when you can’t?   What kind of treatment you want and don’t want?  How comfortable to you want to be made?  How do you want people to treat you?  And, what do I want my loved ones to know?

We always think we have so much time in the future to handle these kinds of questions.  My parents thought that, and yet they both died when I was just a baby.  Life is uncertain.  We never know what is in store for us or those we love.  

Consider it an act of love to talk about this tonight at dinner.  This isn’t something to do in ten minutes.  It needs real consideration.  It is important—too important to put off!
