Father's Day


About 2 years ago, the day before Father's Day, I picked up a picture of my grandfather, who I have not met before. And I said to the picture, "I wish I could have met you." That night I was sleeping next to my grandmother. I woke up around 3:00 in the mooring to get a glass of water. When I turned off the sink, I heard footsteps walking into my grandmother's room. When I ran into the room, I saw a figure, a white fog right next to my grandmother. I chocked back a scream when the figure turned to me and I saw my grandfather smiling at me. He looked so peaceful and happy. I blinked back tears as I watched him. He walked around the bed and stood a few feet from me. Then he disappeared with a smile and a wink.

In the morning nobody believed me, except my brother who had witnessed him too. My brother had said that he had seen my grandfather also. I was very surprised that my brother, out of everyone, had seem him too. My parents thought we were going crazy. Though my grandmother told me later on that she believed me and that she had a "dream" of him talking to her. It was a very scary night, but I believe I will see him another time. I hope that is. Though I have never met my grandfather, I will always love him.

Well, if he only speaks Spanish you can always tell him "Hola abuelito, te quiero mucho",...something like that, although it was very nice he came to visit you upon your desire, take care 😁

Haha. That's funny. And yes it does sound quite funny. I would actually like to talk to him. But I'm not sure if he speaks english [he's a pure spanish man .. though he was in the Navy. I'm still confused. :P] So well, thank you all for commenting. :]

Hey Hannah, I know that you love your grandfather and I also hope that you get to see him again, your grandpa probably sensed or felt your desire to meet him and that's probably what summoned him to you. This was the first time you had seen him, right? My grandma is always having dreams of my great- grandmother and one time I think that she actually saw her spirit or something. For sure I know, that my grandfather saw my great- grandfather's face in the window at my grandparent's house in Mexico. Well, I don't think that there's more to say, good- bye and good- luck. P.s. I'm glad your mom came around to believe you.
