In August of 2018 Grandma Marie passed away.
This of whom I'm speaking of in this, my Husband's paternal grandmother.
Before she passed away, over the month before I had started thinking of her quite frequently.
She would just pop up in my thoughts out of the blue. We had even talked about going to visit her the weekend before she passed.
My husband received that phone call, the morning we were going to visit.
After the funeral and saying our goodbyes, we had arrived home.
All of us, shuffling around the house trying to find something else to dress in.
The dryer is in the lounge room, and I had some clothes still sitting in it, from a previous turn of washing. So we all took turns one by one going in and out of the room.
I was the first to notice her smell. She had a perfume/home smell that only she could make.
I hadn't said anything, I spoke to her in my head, "ok,I know your here to say goodbye, I hope your finally resting " and continued on my search for a pair of sweatpants.
Then my oldest son said "Mom I smell grandma",I said " I know she's here",and he went onto his room, then my husband said it out loud, so the last two kids come running in.
My husbands excuse for this random smell to linger only in one spot was" oh we must have the smell on our clothes."
I said "ok,whatever you believe, but she's here".
I've had some other experiences but not enough to really write about.
I've been trying to write this since this happened, but when I do something just so happens to go haywire with my phone or I get distracted.
Thanks for reading
