I've been married to my wonderful husband since 2004. We have 6 children ranging in age from 12 years down to 15 months. I feel privileged to be able to stay home and homeschool. Most people look at me like I'm crazy but I honestly cannot imagine a life I'd rather lead.

We have a small hobby farm. Many of our animals are rescues in one way or another and we currently have 2 Nubian goats, an assortment of chickens, 5 angora rabbits, 3 dogs, and a 3 legged cat.

My greatest outlet in life is artistic expression. The greatest impact on my life is my faith, there is literally not one area it does not touch. I'm a very extroverted introvert if that makes any sense. Basicallly I like to keep everyone on their toes. 😉

Was It Something In The Ground? on 2017-12-05

There are only two supernatural experiences that really stand out in my life. I shared the first one in my last entry and now I'd like to share the other. I wish I could say this one is as happy as my last entry but it's not. It's not nearly as intense as some of the stories I've read on here but fo...

She Always Did Like To Annoy Him on 2017-11-28

I've been reading here for awhile and have really enjoyed reading everyone's experiences. My youngest child is a bit of a night owl and this site has made the time sitting up with her much more enjoyable. Thanks! I thought I'd make my first entry one of the short and warm fuzzy variety... My m...

I feel like what you were reading may have had something to do with your experience. Kind of like what Rook said but also influenced by the oppositional imagery in the work. Possibly made you more aware or open to any oppositional energy in the room?
I grew up in Rockford IL. I spent many many hours at Riverview Icehouse which isn't too far from this address. It's driving me crazy because I can't quite place it and your picture link isn't working for me. Lots of really neat old homes in that area though.
This ghost suggests entertainment, picks out clothes, and helps with chores? Sounds like a welcome addition to me! Throw in a little babysitting and she's perfect! 😉

You say you're an atheist but believe in demons and other supernatural entities and you wear a blessed cross. Blessed by whom I wonder?

You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. 😉

Maybe agnostic or undecided would be more accurate?
Thank you for the job you do handling this part of life with grace and dignity. I'm sure your work provides much comfort to many families and loved ones.
What an amazing daughter you have! My almost 3 year old tends to say a lot of things about when she "used to be a brother" or back when she "was a grandma," but her comments rarely involve specific details or other people, just a very active imagination.

Actually they usually coincide with something someone else is doing that for one reason or another, she is unable to participate in but still wants to stake her claim to. 😆

The situation with your daughter sounds like something quite different than normal toddler flights of fancy. I look forward to hopefully reading more about your daughter and her experiences.

Have a beautiful night!
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. Isn't it interesting how an interaction with a deceased person can end up being one of the most life affirming experiences you can have? ❤
Jubeele,
It WAS terrifying. I was able to diffuse the situation quite quickly but we put gates up across the driveway entries very soon after that.

Sadly we no longer live there. Our family size outgrew the cute little farmhouse. I miss it but we still have a little farm and have even been able to add a few to our little menagerie of animals who needed a place to live out their days.

I am not a practical farmer at all. I like to think of our farm a little bit like the animated version of Charlotte's Web. LOL That's not to say we haven't raised animals for food but it's the exception around here and I always reserve the right to pardon any animal I see fit. 😆

My husband never felt anything out of the ordinary. He very much believes that spirits and energy from events can influence things here but he is not really sensitive in that way at all. As for the dogs, he never mentioned them acting strangely although that doesn't necessarily mean they didn't... If I was home they were almost always with me but we wouldn't have thought that to be out of the norm either. I very often have a little entourage of tiny humans and animals, it's just how life works around here. LOL

Thank you so much for your comment and have a beautiful evening!
The previous owner just showed up one day and started letting himself into all the buildings, telling us everything was wrong. Scared the crap out of me! He seemed to kind of feel like he still owned the place. He mostly just wanted to talk about how horrible his family was and how they were so unfair to him. He wasn't super lucid and he was a very angry man.
I personally did not. I only went in the storage twice in the about 4 years we lived there and had to fight back panic on both occasions just doing that. My husband and the people who prayed over our house did though and it is my understanding that it did not look like anything more than a hole dug in the ground. That's part of the reason I wonder if it wasn't the room so much but more the ground itself, if that makes sense?

I know I'm super late to the party but I just joined the group so I'm catching up. 😉 I just wanted to note that I know this stretch of road well. It would be hard to lose sight of a car even with their headlights off. It's lit up like an airport runway.
Valkricry,
What a beautiful story! I think I'm going to like this group. ❤ 😁
Melda,
It actually did not play again after that last time. It played the song a few times through and then never played again. I think it might also have been her way of saying goodbye. She hung around long enough to make sure we were all okay (She was always very family focused and her death was an enormous loss for us) and then decided to get one last little taunt in as she made her exit. That would be so like her! 😆
Thanks for taking time to comment. It's funny how excited I get when I see a new comment. LOL I haven't had many supernatural experiences but this one is my favorite. It was just so perfectly "Homma". It was very comforting.

So I was just reading this story when my power went out... Yeah that was fun. 😳
