I must tell you that I've been away in Nashville, Arkansas (a very small town) for the holiday weekend and just returned. I was visiting my dad and my step mom (it was my first time to meet her because they wanted to get married quickly and swiftly so they did it without me there, I granted them the wish). I had a nice time and enjoyed meeting Elaine.
One strange thing happened on this trip this morning actually. It would've been at about 3:00 am and it is Tuesday the 29th. I had to get up that early for my plane out of Texarkana (an hour drive away, and this might could be explained away but it puzzles me), here is the deal:
I brought along my IBOOK computer with me on the trip. On Monday, I had all three of us go out to the backyard and take photos together. I quickly came in and downloaded them. One came out great with the three of us smiling. I kept it up on my computer for the rest of Monday, but my computer has that timed fade out where if you leave your screen on it will black out after a bit on its own.
The only way the screen can come back on is if someone or something contacts the fingerpad square (used for moving the cursor, you know?). Well, right before I went to bed at about 10:00 pm on Monday night, I walked to my computer and whisked my finger onto the pad so the screen popped back on and I could see the photo again before bed. The light illuminated the room as I went to the bed and got under the covers. In a matter of minutes, the screen blacked out as normal and the room was cast into darkness. I awake on my own just about a minute before my 3:00 alarm went off, to find the screen was on and the photo was up again illuminating the room and I immediately got a chill about it and thought... wait a minute, that shouldn't be on!
I hopped up to inspect and see if something was walking on it (an insect? If they walked across the pad could it turn on like that? Maybe I'd assume, right?) but I didn't see an insect. Then the screen went black again. I hopped into bed and the alarm went off and scared me and then I caught a glimpse at this figurine on the nightstand next to me that had been beside me for the whole time I visited but I never inspected it until that moment when the alarm went off and I got a bit of a chill... The figure was a girl that reminded me of the girl in my vision, right before leaving with angel wings and she was on her knees praying. It may not be anything, but one, the computer being on really caught me by surprise and two, it might just be a silly thing, but that angel girl figurine next to my bed reminded me of the vision.
Another weird thing that I learned on this trip is that Elaine, my step mom's only daughter, was born the same year as I was and she was killed in a car wreck sometime around prom or homecoming I believe. It's been about 10 years since she died.
With me leaving so early this morning... One, I didn't get to ask Elaine where that angel figurine came from and I wanted to (just ask her curiously but not telling her why I'm asking, I don't want to freak her out) and two, since I only just met her this trip and am getting to know her... It's not right for me to come out so immediately and ask about her daughter's death and if she has experienced any weird things since her daughter dying. I don't want to frighten Elaine or have her think I'm crazy. But I had many questions in my mind early this morning as I left.
My life has been feeling a bit different and odd since May 22nd and I don't want to be making stuff up in my head or over exaggerating or anything but things just feel a little off kilter.
These new developments might be absolutely nothing but I'm just taking notice, trying to notice details just in case something is going on around me.
