Hold Your People Close
Yesterday we lost a good friend who should have lived much longer. When someone asked how he was, he always smiled and said, “Better than I deserve.” He was such a fine devoted family man. He was successful, but had not a whit of arrogance. He knew he was blessed, but he never took it for granted. As a doc in a little town you come to know your people well. He was one more quality human being, and sure did deserve a lot more Happy Birthdays.
If I haven’t learned anything else in the doc biz, it is to hold your people close. We aren’t promised tomorrow, so let’s all make the best for today we can. If my friend was still here, I can promise you he would do exactly that.
