My DDSO hated reality TV shows. After he passed away, I started watching Long Island Medium. I could feel his spirit next to me admonishing me for watching a reality TV show about spirits. “You don’t need a medium or a reality TV show to know that I am with you!” he’d tell me. It was just like him. I’d laugh and cry at the same time.
Teresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium, would probably never be my friend. She would probably drive me crazy with her carrying on over her regular life. But she moves me every time she does a reading and brings meaning to the person who is grieving. She has helped me figure out what life is supposed to be like now. The latest lesson I learned was when one of the spirits told a loved one to “Embrace Life.”
DDSO always wanted me to be happy. He would sacrifice his wishes to make sure I was happy. What a lovely man. Since he was on chemo and then he passed away, I have been struggling with how to be happy. Is it “moving on?” “Letting go?” I think “Embrace Life” is perfect.
