I've long been fascinated with mediums and "signs" from the other side. My interest grew out of grief; I lost my father when I was a senior in high school, and I was desperate to understand what happened when someone died. I'm comically oblivious to details and knew I'd miss anything less than a billboard, so I did my research to see what the experts said to watch for. These signs that someone is trying to connect with you from the other side are certainly easy to miss, yet indescribably comforting when you don't.
One of my favorite television shows to binge watch is Long Island Medium. My husband, a scientist, professor, and the most logical man I've ever met, becomes an eye-rolling machine every time it's on. Despite his constant interjections and skepticism, I'm absolutely captivated by Theresa Caputo and the work that she does – specifically, the comfort that she brings to those grieving the loss of a loved one. In many ways, that's the real gift that mediums offer, and the gift I receive with these signs. Even my skeptic husband can agree that when something brings reassurance and comfort to someone who needs it, why argue against it? When you experience these moments and notice these little signs, take a moment to remember the person you lost, and take comfort in their love that surrounds you even when their physical presence is gone.
