Dyany, you are not the first friend to ask about hospice.  I appreciate that that service is available, but I do not feel it is time for that, yet.  While her brain and body donít communicate so well, they eventually get it done.
Example:  I can no longer just say, Time for dinner.  Now itís:
1. (So she can see me) Itís time for dinner.
2.  Uncross your legs.
3.  Put your feet down solid.
4.  Put your hands on the chair arms.
4a.  Donít put your hands on the walker; put them on the chair arms.
5.  Push yourself up.  (Assist when words donít computeóabout 50%)
6.  Now put your hands on the walker.
7.  Follow me to the table.
8.  Okay, take my hand and Iíll help you get in the chair.
9.  (Prompt her to eat.  Sometimes thatís entails actually putting the fork in her hand, sometimes itís just getting her focus back on food.)

Repeat steps as necessary.

My next concern is her taking her medication.  Sometimes one pill at a time is too much.  Almost a year ago, she started swishing the water in her mouth before swallowing; it annoys me, but itís a serious Ick Factor to one of my other siblings. Buy stock in applesauce; weíll be needing a lot of it soon.  O:-)

Thereís more than six months left in her.

Iím just seeing a lot of evidence that we should all give each other a lot of grace and patience in the temple. I think everyone is doing their best. Thankfully that has been my experience in 22 years plus of temple attendance.

I do not sit until the last person is ready to sit.  I am  grateful for the opportunity to stand a while longer. Sitting for long periods of time can be be hard, with all the joints stiffening up, etc.

I'm going in to the next room where I'm going to meet my Beloved Father, and I am going to look as presentable as my pudgy little frame can manage.

Wow, this was a real eye opener for me.

I share your attitude, Jana.

Sometimes (especially back in the "robe on two times" era) it felt like some men were trying to slap that stuff on as quickly as possible so they're not the last one standing.   ;)

Not me.  I take my sweet time.  I try to make everything look presentable.  I'm going in to the next room where I'm going to meet my Beloved Father, and I am going to look as presentable as my pudgy little frame can manage.   :)

And if I'm the last man ready for the move?  So be it.

That is so sweet. Iíll certainly keep you up to date when he gets to that point. I know he will be so touched to know he still has a village who is cheering for him to succeed.

You'll hear explanations that go anywhere from There's A Sacred Unwritten Oral Tradition Of Deep And Profound Significance Of The Tie to, "It helped the robe not to fall off the shoulder."

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Adjustments in Temple Ceremonial Clothing

We are pleased to announce adjustments to the sacred ceremonial clothing worn only in the temple. These clothing adjustments do not change temple doctrine or symbolism but are designed to enhance members' experience in the temple and make the ceremonial clothing easier to put on, care for, and afford.

If preferred, members may continue to use their current ceremonial clothing.It need not be replaced by the new style.

For additional information, see "Improving Our Temple Experience"
at Liahona.ChurchofJesusChrist.org or go to store.ChurchofJesusChrist.org/ceremonialclothing.

We express our gratitude for members' faithful efforts to worship in the temple. We know that regular attendance will bring increased joy and happiness.

Forum and Member News / Re: Baby #3 is here.
« on: January 16, 2020, 12:47:00 am »
Baby is 5.5 months old now and doing very well. His big brother and sister love him very much. He loves to be held upright and look around at the world. I brought in the high chair to see how well he would sit in it. He needs a bit of padding to keep from tipping to a side, but I think he will start to like the idea of participating at meal time. Like his siblings, he became a great sleeper earlier than many other babies, which improved my wife's well being immensely.

We are having a hard time determining the color of his eyes. Mine are a pale green. My wife has brown eyes. #1's are blue eyes. #2's has turned a beautiful brown, though we called them hazel when we got his passport at 4 months. #3 appears to have a bit of green in them, though gray/brown/blue have also been used, depending on the day and the ambient light and background.

I don't view  the US as an ethnic group. But it certainly is a very distinct cultural group.

As a European I think one political would be enough. I can't see much of discussion that is not US  centered in one way or another. Even when it is about European politics, it is very.much through the lens of US, since most of you guys are Americans. I don't see any need/point to divide into subsections.

I'd minimize the number of subsections to keep things simple.  One section each for political discussions and A&E.  Keep writer forum separate from A&E Let's just make it a habit of being clear in the topic title what the specific

Quick side note.  I've never thought of the US as a distinct ethnic group.  Is that how the rest of the world views the country?

Finally decided to read Little Women, having neither read it or watched any filmed adaptation. And I'm finding it simply delightful.

Now that I've had a couple of days to think about it, I question the value of a political section for the forum. It seems that most people have expressed how much they like other parts of the forum, but there's not a lot of love for the political part. If I'm honest, then I have to admit my political convictions haven't really changed from any of the discussions. If anything, I've become more entrenched because I feel the need to argue and defend. That's exactly opposite from what's happened in other threads where I've learned new things and modified my thinking.  I'd be okay if we eliminated the politics section and the need for a charter addendum, and instead focused on building and maintaining a community of shared faith.

Patty Rain and Jana, there are solutions that will make the forum easier to use on mobile. We're working on it. It might take a few days or a week, but theoretically it will get done. Hopefully that will help.

Also, to everyone who contributed insights, thank you.

To be clear, we are not doing away with Nauvoo. That was not even a thought. Our concern is making this forum work better for all of us.

And with that, if anyone else has any difficulties using the forum, we'd like to know about it. I didn't realize there was a problem with mobile because that's not how I use Nauvoo, but given that we now know it's a problem for some, we'll get that fixed. Likewise for anything else that doesn't work well - let us know and we'll work on a solution.
