Simple tasks v. complicated tasks by Justin Steele

Since starting work here at Rice Amundsen and Caperton, I have been fortunate enough to put my accounting background and minimal legal knowledge to hard work; building book cases, assembling dollies, and moving file cabinets up and down the stairs. 
You might think that sounds a little bit sarcastic.  That’s probably because it was a little sarcastic, but in reality I am glad that I have been given the opportunity to do not only the small tasks but also tasks related to legal work.  Since beginning work here, I have gotten to do all the things that one imagines doing when they watch a movie like Paperchase: running to court, running errands, getting coffee, sending correspondences, and becoming best friends, but also mortal enemies, with the copier.  I have gotten to do all these things and have learned an important lesson for life and legal practice.
Although it might not be the most profound, I’ve come to an important realization.  Most days, it turns out, are spent doing simple things, talking in nice tones to the copier, and are not spent making groundbreaking arguments in court.  However, these small tasks are of equal importance to the big ones and they should be given a similar appreciation.  Like Oswald Chambers says, “We are not made for the mountains, for sunrises, or for the other beautiful attractions in life - those are simply meant to be moments of inspiration.  We are made for the valleys, and the ordinary things in life, that is where we have to prove our stamina and strength.”

“Thankful Every Day” by: Jennifer Bicknell

    Veterans’ Day is coming up next Monday and I wanted to take a moment to offer my thanks to all the Veterans, both those who have served in the past and those who serve today.  I am thankful for the sacrifices not only they have made and continue to make for our country, but also the sacrifices of their families.  As a former high school U.S. History teacher, I taught my fair share of lessons on the various wars that occurred throughout our history as a nation, and even those that occurred before there even was a United States of America, and I always tried to foster a respect and understanding of those sacrifices to my students. 
            So if you know a veteran, say “Thank you!”  If you see a veteran, say “Thank you!”  Be thankful for our veterans, not just on November 11th but every day.

Memphis Divorce Attorney Larry Rice: on Divorce Trial in Tennessee

Memphis Divorce Attorney Larry Rice discusses the divorce trial process. You have gone through the entire divorce process and things couldn't get resolved, so you have made it to the last and worst step. Mr. Rice emphasizes on the importance of telling the truth. Tell your lawyer everything from the very beginning. Telling the truth makes it much easier. Tell the court the truth because it will probably come out anyways and will destroy your lives about one thing and destroy the truth your telling about everything else... so, tell the truth. Mr. Rice informs you on how to prepare for trial. We don't know what the Judge is going to do until the Judge does it, and then sometimes we still do not know what the Judge is going to do. So, if you have your case tried, work with your lawyer, tell the truth, and realize the system isn't always perfect. Judges are trying to do what they think are right.
