Real Ghost Stories

Is That You Daddy?


As I have mentioned in other stories, my father passed away in 1987 at a very young age of 45. I was 22 at the time of my father's death and we were very close - me being his eldest daughter. If it were possible- I went everywhere with my daddy - I even got to participate in "Bring Your Daughter to Work" day with my dad. I was always proud of my dad as he was just as proud of me. (Hope that makes sense). I also mentioned that my dad came for a little visit to see his 1st grandson, Ryan - when Ryan was just 7 mo. Old.

A few years later (1991) I had my second son, Dean. Dean was born late in the year - and I had moved into another apartment - one without stairs - because at this time - Ryan had proven himself as being quite a climber - and it made me nervous that Ryan would hurt himself and I felt that we needed to move somewhere safer.

Dean was about 4 months of age and I was falling asleep feeding him his bottle - when I was awoken by a very bright light from the hallway. - I heard someone say "Cheryl, wake up sweetie." - I woke up with Dean in my arms - and was a little confused by what I had heard - I was still half asleep - but awake enough to put Dean into his crib. The next morning I replayed the incident in my head - and knew that was my dad's voice.

This happened over 19 years ago - and I can still see that bright light - I felt the presence of my dad - Once again my dad was looking out for his grandsons and his oldest girl - thank you dad - I love you.

Ms-Foresight and bloodymaryboy: - Thank you for the comments.
Bloodymaryboy - Thank you for the kind comment-
you don't know how many times I have wished that the "Hands Of Time" could be turned back - and not just to see my Daddy again - but for several other reasons too. Its a shame that with everything going on in the world that's one power we do not have.

He loved you enough to come back and to look after your children! Heartwarming and made me sniffle a bit. Thanks for sharing and I know he is probably watching over them as I write this! πŸ˜† ❀ πŸ˜†

Thank you all for the comments...
Miracles: I'm sorry - did not mean to make you cry ❀...and yes, My dad loved his 4 girls very much - we were his life - we were the reason he got up everyday and worked hard - my dad was truly one amazing man - and I miss him so very much.

Granny:Thank you - Dad may come and visit and that is nice - but I really do regret that dad did not get to enjoy his grandchildren in his living years - he was an awesome dad - but I know that he would have been the "Greatest" grandaddy ever.

applerose - darn it, you lied to me 😊. You said it wouldn't make me cry. I'm with cosmogal, this was a very heartwarming story.

OMG, woman, the love your dad has for you is eternal. Not only that, but he's bound and determined to make sure he's there to watch over his grandsons too, huh? What a great man. Even death couldn't take that away from him. A dad's love for his daughter ❀ Beautiful.
