Mississippi Family Law

It Is Cheaper to Keep Her

I am proud I have a pretty good record in our Mississippi family law and divorce courts.  The main reason is because I do my best to stay out if my client cannot win.  This week has been a humbling exception.   Read More

I’m Divorced, I’m Separated, I’m Miserable, What Now?

Happy New Year! I have been intentionally silent in the blogosphere and email blast world for the last few weeks since our big gala for 200 Million Flowers on December 6th. I guess I was just out of gas, having run so hard in 2012. It took totally unplugging from everything just for the creative energy to start to percolate again.  Even on the last day of the work year I was forced to send a message to a young attorney.  MESSAGE:  If we are going to deal with one another for the next decade or two practicing divorce law in Mississippi, it goes a long way to pick up the phone and talk to me before trying to go around me.  Be a problem solver not a problem creator. Read More

The Strongest Drug Known to Man

A counselor friend of mine from Meridian used to say that the strongest drug known to man is strange nookie.  Wikipedia, the authority on everything, says “nookie” is a slang term for sexual intercourse.  Get it? Read More

Love is Creative

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a sermon in 1957 at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.  It is definitely worth hearing.  He said the following: Read More

Go Buy a TV

I have gotten on this kick where I like salmon for breakfast –whether it be in an omelet or on a bagel or served Benedict style, throw in some tomatoes, purple onion, cream cheese and capers and it is on.   If you are feeling frisky, you could include a little spinach for color.  While I have been trying to cut carbs lately, for breakfast, especially one including “pink fish”, I make an exception. Every now and then I will go to breakfast by myself.  It is a good way for me to clear my head before I get in to the office to face the day’s challenges.  Read More

Cancer

I’m going to say something that could not be more of an understatement.  Cancer is a drag.  My experience with the disease is next to non-existent, until now.  My sister was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago.  The doctors kicked the cancer’s butt, but in the process, they took out the good stuff she needs to fight the everyday bad stuff we don’t even think about.  Now minor infections and yeasts and molds can be life-threatening.   Read More

ICU

The ICU waiting room is a terrible place.  I spent 3 days there this week.  One of the reasons I am not a doctor, other than not being smart enough, is because I hate hospitals.  The people that work there seem to be okay, but the buildings themselves depress me. Read More

Not the Same

It has been a while since I sat down to write a blog article.  Who would of thought being the executive director of a new,  Mississippi non-profit adoption agency would be so time consuming?  But I digress (more on that later)… I have a friend and client who is going through a divorce.  He is a great guy who made a few mistakes.  Actually, in the grand scheme of mistakes that a person can make in a marriage, his were relatively minor offenses, but his wife, a hard-charging, type-A personality, cannot stand that her perfect little idea of a life may not have a starched shirt and slick, silk tie.   I grieve for him, but I grieve for her just as much.   I want to reach out to her and tell her that if your idea of living is measured relationally to those around you as opposed to what springs from inside, inhabiting the spiritual realm, there will never be a sense of satisfaction, but what do I know, she is going through one divorce and I have been through about 500. Read More

Tim Tebow versus Joel Osteen

I have a friend who is an addict.  It breaks my heart how he continually makes bad choices.  I have not supported his bad choices and he has said many things calculated to hurt me –mostly via text message.  Even if untrue or with only shades of truth, words from those you love hurt the most.  That is one of the many things that make divorce in the Bible belt of Mississippi (or anywhere for that matter) so freaking hard.   Read More

The Parasite

I get inspired for these little articles, aka rants, from all different sorts of crazy places.  This week, it comes from an official looking note on orange paper being sent home with Emma about a breakout of lice in her classroom.  When I was a kid…. Yep, I got them.  My little tail was sent home from school after an examination from my teacher with a sharpened pencil.  It was very embarrassing and getting rid of them was a long, annoying, time consuming process.  Read More
