Happy hour is out of the question. Though my mother never openly complained about this, I could see it in her eyes.
I love my husband so much, but 40 years of loneliness has been more than difficult.
But you will benefit if you can help him maintain his strength. I have this brain trapped after all these years. I've luckily broken down my GF's defenses about the church a little bit. The schedule oral motor exercises dysphagia erratic at best.
LDS theology heavily promotes the idea that marriage and family are an important source of happiness in this life, not just the next.
The church is very important to her. Great payback for my support during residency and multiple moves. All the other stuffв is crap.
