My Loving Mom


My Mom was a generous, gentle, kind hearted person. She'd help out any way she could. I hate to tell you that when I was a teenager I was pretty rude to her. You know, everyone around the age of 15 or so knows everything there is to know about everything. My Mom always let things slide to a reasonable level before she'd let me know what a jerk I was acting. I think she understood that I was just being a teenager.

One day I realized just how lucky I was to have such a great mother and friend and I started to let her know that I felt that way. That was the first time I had ever said 'I love you' to Mom (we weren't a really huggy-kissy family, we loved each other, we knew it and that was fine). I started taking Mom out for coffee and shopping, talking with her more and just hanging out. Why the big change? I don't know, it just felt like it was time.

Shortly after, she was diagnosed with cancer. Hmmm. Lucky for us she beat it that time but five years later she developed cancer and it quickly spread and took her away from us. My Dad and I were heart broken. She'd been here for my wedding which made her very happy but when I was pregnant for the first time, I felt so sad that she wouldn't see her first grandchild and I thought of her so often.

When my son was born, we forgot to take a camera to the hospital for his first pictures, we didn't even think about it until the lady in the next bed's hubby started taking photos. I guess she overheard us and very kindly lent us her instant polaroid to take some pictures. The first one was a very tired me holding a wrinkly little bundle, sort of down on my lap. I took one of my hubby holding baby and then another of me with baby. We gave the camera back and looked at the now fully developed pictures.

The first one of me with our little one was so amazing! My image was clear as a bell but my baby had a big orb around his whole body. The other pictures taken with the camera were just fine. My Mom saw her first grandson after all!

When my Dad was near the end and in the hospital (we both knew he wouldn't be going home) he was pretty weak and only semi-conscious most of the time. When he was awake and aware, he was totally lucid. The Dad I knew and loved. On his birthday he told me that he had seen my Mom at his window the night before and he was ready to go with her. I didn't want to hear it but I believed him and knew it really was almost his time.

The next day was my birthday and he wished me happy birthday and we chatted for a time. He finally got tired and dozed off. He never woke up again. Since then I haven't had any experiences involving either of my parents. I think they're too busy with each other now that they are back together.

Hi, Bellissima, I am so glad to hear that your mom came and seen your baby, but your mother was there to take your father home with her, just thinking of them up in heaven knowing that everything is better, I believe they still come around to see how you and your family are doing. THanks for the sharing your story.

Hi Bellissma! It's very sad when you lose someone that you love so much. I am very sorry for your loss. I lost one of my parent's, I couldn't imagine losing both. I know that one day it will happen but I'm not ready. I guess no one ever is! I believe that your Father is with your Mother caatching up on lost time. Thanks for sharing your story. ~Shelby ❀

Awww, shucks, whitebuffalo. 😳 You make me blush. Thank you so much for the kind words and your support. I do feel pretty lucky for the chance of this special experience. I loved my parents and they loved each other, that's why I think the way I do on that. I'll bet our loved ones are doing a lot of catching up with a lot of souls they've been missing, too! Thanks for enjoying my story and the lovely comment. ❀

Bellissima this is a beautiful account of love reaching out from the other side. I enjoyed your assessment of your parents being too busy together to come to you, as it gave me an answer as to maybe why my Father-in-Law has not yet visited me. I have been impatiently waiting for that. I guess I'm being selfish wanting him to take time away from my Mother-in-Law who passed years ago. Thank you for this story and I am so glad that your Mother got to see your marriage and your first born, also that your Father got to wish you a happy birthday. You are Blessed.

Hi, Athena! Boy, I'd love to share the photo, but when we first got it (on polaroid film) we thought it was really weird, but didn't think anything supernatural. We just thought it was a flaw. I have since heard that polaroid film is very reliable for this type of thing, that there couldn't be a single flawed photo because the whole sealed pack would be affected, and because the packet of film was sealed, you couldn't tamper with it without exposing the whole pack. Since it was an imperfect photo of my perfect son, I decided to trim it up and put it in this photo cube (DUH!) so it's in this cube and I'm on one little section and my son's on another little section. You can perfectly see the aura or mist around my son in his little section, and you can see some of it in my little section. I would love to share it if A) I knew how to do such a thing and B) if I had kept it as it had originally come out of the camera, rather than sealed in a little cube. I'd be afraid of ruining it while trying to remove it after it's been there for almost 16 years! That sounds lame, but mostly you don't expect something like that, unless you've set out to catch a spirit, in which case, you'd be looking for it. It's an amazing photo and it means the world to me. ❀ Thank you for the compliment! 😊

Hi that was a lovely story I really enjoyed reading it. When our family relatives or friends who have passed away they do watch over us. They want to see how we are doing in life and seeing us happy. Yeah I would say that was your mum seeing your baby.

Hi lydia07, I'm happy to hear your Grandma was there for you. Your orbs just make things so much more special when you know your Grandma sends her blessings to you ❀

gbeach, I feel bad for your loss. Your Mom sounds so special to come to you from beyond to cheer you up. That sounds like an unselfish, loving person to be watching over you. I think she'll be there for your Dad even if you don't have the chance to see or find out (I feel privileged to have been told of her visit by my Dad, though if I had not been there when I was, I wouldn't have known). Your Mom just sounds too sweet and thoughtful not to be there when your Dad needs her. ❀

Hi Unicorn, Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I wasn't expecting any more comments! Bie, I'm sorry for not commenting to you as well. I thank you both for your kind words. Please don't feel sorrow for my Mom, she knew she couldn't take any more treatments and made her own choice. I felt sorry about her loss and I felt sorry for myself for a while too. I realized my Mom had made an impact on a lot of people and this would have made her very happy, I know she's smiling now, especially since her suffering is over and she's back with my Dad. ❀

I can really relate to you. I lost my mom when I was a teen. She comes to me in dreams but I never get to see her face, just her frosted blonde hair. She usually tells me something funny that makes me smile. She always comes to me in times of turmoil. It makes me happy that your dad had her to guide him over. I hope my mom will be there for my pop when he passes over.

Very sorry to hear about your mother. But thank you for sharing such a heart touching story with us. At least your Dad went in peace. Hope you have another child and have 2 orbs there 😊 😊

What a great story.
I'm glad to hear that your father was able to be so comforted in his final hours-- both by you and by your mother.
And I'm happy for your mother, since she was able to see your wedding and her first grandchild!
