Last year I participated in what is called a “blog rally” to promote Engage With Grace – a movement aimed at making sure all of us understand, communicate, and have honored our end-of-life wishes. This year I would like to participate again.
The blog rally is timed to coincide with Thanks Giving, an annual tradition celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November in the USA.
At the heart of Engage With Grace are five questions designed to get the conversation about end-of-life started. I’ve included them at the end of this post. They’re not easy questions, but they are important — and believe it or not, most people find they actually enjoy discussing their answers with loved ones. The key is having the conversation before it’s too late.
These are the 5 questions to discuss (follow the link to fill in the form).
It is a variation on the slide below: Would you and your love ones even want to discuss these?
