Letters to Tuvia #68: Deep Love (11-3-15) #sol15

Morning T,

It’s too early to be up but I did sleep deeply here in my place and after a great therapy session today I reached some clarity.  I’m not letting myself cry enough.  I’m in my head, controlling my emotions and as Sandie worked with me to get me to  breathe more deeply I did start to give into my deep sadness.

You know I love watching Dancing with the Stars for the collaborations of dance choreographers and celebrities who are not dancers by profession.  Last night each celebrity selected an icon who has inspired them.  It was an emotional show and of course, I was moved by the guy who chose his wife who is finally pregnant after a rocky road.

I never made you watch the whole 2 hour show but I often picked one dance that I loved to share with you. So here’s the one that I sobbed with.  I played it over and over and lived in the story with you.  As a kid, it was my favorite Elvis tune.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love”

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with youLike a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with youLike a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with you
for I can’t help falling in love with you



Through the tears I’m dancing with you forever,


Bonnie S.

  1. Another show we watch together, I’m a big DWTS fan too. That dance and song left me wiping my eyes at the end. I’m glad you are working through your grief with someone. Such good counseling, allow your emotions to come through, rather than bury them away.

  2. Oh. I love that Elvis song. So passionate and true. You have me giving in here, sobbing with you. So glad you are letting the emotions go with someone to help you through it.

  3. There are some things that we just can not get through alone. So glad you have some one to help you through this time and helping you bring out the emotions instead of burying them deep inside. Kathy and i watched DWTS at one time but have gotten away from it.

  4. This is a beautiful & loving post, Bonnie. Can’t stop the tears & I’m glad you didn’t either. It’s so good you are talking with someone who helps navigate what’s happening. Love that picture of you and Tuvia.

  5. Grief is so unpredictable. So glad you have someone helping you breathe deeply. Take advantage of the times when the tears come and give in to them. We all experience grief differently. Be willing to find your own path through this time.
