I was becoming anxious and getting worked up about an upcoming dental appointment.
“Is there anything I can do to calm you down?” my wife asked.
“Not that I can think of. I just have to be an adult about this.” I replied.
“What would your Mother say to you in this situation to help you cope?”
I pondered that for a couple of seconds and replied “Calm down or I’ll give you something to really cry about.”
I miss her so much. My Mother. Not my wife.
