My grandma was a kind woman with a kind heart. We were very close and when she was diagnosed with cancer in September of 2010, I tried so hard to be with her every second that I could. She fought very hard but ended up passing away in October of 2011. On the day she passed I was sitting in class when something out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. I turned to see her standing there, smiling at me. At first I thought I was just seeing things, this apparition couldn't possibly be my grandmother, she was at home, in her bed, sleeping... It wasn't thirty minutes later that I got the call that changed my life forever.
Two months had passed before I saw my grandma again. And by then, I knew I wasn't just seeing things. It was Christmas Day, and I was getting ready to go to my cousin's house for Christmas dinner, when I saw her, my beautiful angel standing in the corner of the room. But, when I walked toward her, she disappeared. I smiled, happy that I had seen her again.
I was trying everything I possibly could to get my grandma to come back to see me. I would say call out "Grandma?" when I was alone. She never came to see me until one evening we were having my birthday party. I was a little upset, because I missed my grandma and all I wanted for my birthday was to be able to see her. I was standing by the bathroom door, upset, when I looked up and saw her. She smiled at me, and for a split second I got my birthday wish. She disappeared and I haven't seen her since, but I know she's still here.
