NOTHING STINKS MORE AT TIMES, THAN C-ING YOUR LOVED 1 SICK, BUT STILL CARING 4 U…POTTYING & DRESSING MYSELF SEEM IMPOSSIBLE RIGHT NOW, BUT FEEDING MYSELF WAS SOMETHING I WANTED 2 TACKLE. IT SEEMED MANAGEABLE…
I TACKLED IT IN STAGES: I LEARNED 2 RAISE MY ARM HIGHER, DISCOVERED THAT I COULD SUCK ON A STRAW & PRACTICED THAT, DEVELOPED BITING SKILLS, & WORKED ON MY AIM (SO I COULD DIP FOOD, & MESSY FOODS WOULD GO IN MY MOUTH, MORE THAN ON MY FACE!)

ON TUES., 3/2, I HAVE A STORY 2 SHARE…
RECENTLY, MK STARTED GIVING ME ROLLS AT DINNER, BUT I ONLY DO A MEAL IF HE HAS A TIME CRUNCH OR SOMETHING. I LOVE IT! I’VE DONE ARBY’S, A TUNA SUB (W/A FORK), ETC., BUT MY NEW THING IS LUNCHABLES (HAM & CHEESE CRACKERS)–I LISTEN 2 AN AUDIO BOOK AS I EAT, & CAN DO THE WATER. (I DISCOVERED MONTHS AGO THAT I COULD DO THE WATER BECUZ I GOT TIRED OF WAITING 4 MY WATER! LOL EVER SINCE I DISCOVERED THAT I COULD DO THE WATER, I’VE EXPERIMENTED–WHILE A FULL CUP IS POSSIBLE, IT’S TONS HARDER 2 LIFT, SQUEEZE, & SUCK, SO I TAKE 4EVER, & GIVE UP! IF THE CUP’S 1/2-FULL, IT’S MUCH LESS DAUNTING!
TUESDAY, 3/2, I HAD A CORN DOG. DIPPED IT & EVERYTHING. I HAD ZACH FILL A CUP 1/2-WAY, & PUT IT W/IN REACH. I FINISHED MY CORN DOG, & WENT 2 SWITCH MY PLATE & DRINK, BUT MK’S MOM WAS VISITING, & GOT THERE 1ST…I MOTIONED 2 GIVE ME THE WATER, & SHE SAID SOMETHING LIKE, “U KIDDING ME?” I DRANK IT, PUT THE EMPTY CUP IN THE SINK, & THREW AWAY MY BIB! TA DA! LOL
THIS IS FAIRLY NEW, BUT THIS WASN’T THE 1ST TIME.

I HEARD THIS QOUTE A LONG TIME AGO AT CHURCH:
“When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top… —you must begin with the first, and go on…”
History of the Church, 6:306–7; from a discourse given by Joseph Smith on Apr. 7, 1844, in Nauvoo, Illinois; reported by Wilford Woodruff, Willard Richards, Thomas Bullock, and William Clayton; see also appendix, page 562, item 3.

SOMEWHERE IN THE BEGINNING, WHEN I WAS GIVEN MY ARM SUPPORT, I FED MYSELF ON OCCASION, BUT I DETESTED IT: MORE FOOD GOT ALL OVER ME & THE FLOOR, & IT TOOK SO LONG, MY FOOD GOT COLD. I WASN’T READY…I SKIPPED RUNGS ON THE LADDER, & FALLEN.
