Final Five Wishes

I do not really think about my final days, even though I know it is a reality “For here we have no lasting city but we seek the city that is to come (Hebrews 13:14). I would not want my children or grandchildren to have to make decisions when it comes to my final days because they would be emotionally involved, although I am certain that they would still make the best decision for me.

The first of the 5 wishes deals with the person that I would want to make health care decisions for me when I can no longer make them for myself. If possible, I would have all three of my children make decisions on my behalf for medical services because they are a team and they understand my desires. If only one can sign the necessary forms for things such as surgeries I entrust that to my oldest daughter. Secondly, I would want the health care providers to give me enough medicine to control my pain.  I believe this would help with my desire for my caregivers to keep me as comfortable as possible.  Additionally, I wish to have my children and close friends with me as often as possible. If at all possible, I would love for my grandchildren to visit me frequently but if not, I would at least expect to have many pictures of them throughout my room.  The fourth wish is to be treated with respect, love and kindness.  Although this is fourth on the list, it is not to be replaced with any of the others.  I know that my kids and grandkids would honor this fourth wish naturally because that was/is a part of who they are.

As for my 5th and final wish, I would want my family and friends to know that I love them and to remember all the good times that we shared! I want them to find comfort in knowing that” heaven is a prepared place for prepared people,”
