Order That One Does Not See

Last week, I wrote Appreciation of Order. Now, I have a reason to appreciate some order that was, previously, fairly invisible to me.

My mother just died. As her eldest child, I now have stuff to handle, stuff that I do not know that much about.

I appreciate that there are people who do handle many of the nitty-gritty details: the coroner, the funeral service, etc.

Sometimes, in other areas, I have had protest from a person that he does not see why he should have to do something and him using that as an excuse for not doing the thing. Just because you do not see why does not mean that there is not a valid reason for doing it.

I am thankful that this infrastructure exists now that I need it.
