I'm not saying my house is haunted. Because that would (most likely) be false. But I can put my finger on some weird things that have happened. My Dad has also only had one "ghostly" experience. Weird, too, because he is 53 and has had all the chances in the world to have a paranormal experience.
For example, when he was in the Army in Texas, he was out in the dessert, at night, where you could see anything in the sky. He never once saw a UFO. It was the perfect setting, too. But when he was 12 and he lived in Long Island, he and some friends went to a friend's house and played ball. Then they went inside, and headed down for the basement. They were the only ones there. When they reached the door to the basement, they heard a screeching sound of aluminum on the floor. They ran back up the stairs as fast as they could. They looked through the basement window (outside) and saw the chair had moved all the way across the room. When the parents came home, they took them down to the basement to show them the chair had moved. But guess what? The chair was back where it was in the first place. Nobody believed them.
My Mom's friend's birthday was recently. When she lived in Akron, Ohio, they were supposed to move to California, get married, and live together. But he left without her and got back together with his ex-wife. My Mom was upset, and never answered his phone calls.
One day, she decided to call him. Unfortunately, she found out he had died a couple years earlier. She was devastated. Around the time of his birthday, she found feathers around the house. We never find feathers around the house. And we have no pet birds. She also found coins. Ok, so maybe it was a coincidence? Well not exactly...
One morning she woke up to make coffee, and was about to take the cup out of the dishwasher, when she saw a penny. The cup was turned over, and the penny was sitting on the bottom of the cup. Explain that, please. Who would put a penny on a coffee cup? My Mom doesn't do it, she's busy all the time. My Dad is at work all day, and goes to bed early. My sister is literally, never home. And I didn't do it.
Lastly, I want to tell a story about my sister. She was about 14 or 13 when this happened. She had just started doing her own laundry. Keep in mind, she does not have a job, and my parents would not secretly do this to her. Like I said, they are busy. Every time my sister would do her laundry, she would find money in her pockets. Lots of money. I thought maybe she kept putting the same money in her pockets, and thinking she had found more. But that wasn't the case.
1. She didn't have any money.
2. She started collecting it, and came up with a lot.
After awhile though, the money stopped coming. I don't know what happened after that.
I probably have more stories... I just cannot recall them right now. But when I remember them, I'll post them :)
You have me looking through your stories again. I was reading through the comments and see that the coin was tails up and in the bottom of an empty coffee cup.
When I was much younger 😊, (no I will NOT tell you how much younger) my Grandmother would do readings for us out of our coffee cups and this comment line brought that experience back to me.
I do not know why I did not think of it the first time a posted a comment eons ago, but for what it is worth, here is what she taught me...
An upturned coffee cup means that you are to take notice (for that matter, it is any type of cup, or bowl). It is like a neon sign pointing your attention to something.
A coin found with tails up would mean the END of something that is important (On the flip side, excuse the pun, Heads up means the beginning of something).
You did not mention in the story. Can you remember if something ended around that time that was pretty important? The next paragraphs only mention your sisters new found wealth.
